Very nice. Looks well balanced. What are those small things on tyre valves? How is the battery mounted - seat tube or seatpost? Enjoy.

Thank you - they're just the small nuts that Campag supply to stop the valve rattling against the rim. Battery is in the seatpost along with the D-Fly unit.

Thanks! Absolutely beautifully.

The BB is rock solid but the ride is 'plush;. So settled and planted, and doesn't feel at all 'brittle' like some carbon bikes I've ridden. I'm guessing that's because they've not chased weight as the main metric. The handling is superb and on the fairly poor roads around here it's such a smooth ride.

Super nice! Very clean.

Can you provide a bit of info about the which model C-Bear BB you used? Thanks.

Very beautiful built! The Boras on the C64 look great!

Glad to hear the ride is comfortable!

May I ask why you decided to order clincher over tubulars?

It really doesn't get any better than that, does it?

Please stay safe on my dream bike and enjoy every pedal stroke.

I feel incredibly fortunate to ride the bike I own and I really do love it, but your C64 is absolutely perfect.

And thanks also for the stunning pics!

Oh, and btw, what made you go with the 3T bars instead of the Deda Superzeros? I found this thread from your post asking about the bar-end junction for the Superzeros. I'm about to do that on my own bike.

Thank you!

Sure - it's this one: https://www.c-bear.com/en/products/bott ... face-rotor

I know that Ceramicspeed have theirs out but it's a lot more costly and this was already a bit of a luxury option.

Thanks. They do look so good. Wonderful finish on them.

I've always ridden clinchers and have zero experience with tubs. The roads around me aren't great and punctures are a reality sadly, especially with decent (fast) tyres, so I'm just sticking with what I know I can sort and be up and running quickly. I tend to ride alone so that's also a factor.

Thanks so much, that's really kind.

Sure. I did originally think it would be Superzeros but I prefer the shape of the new Superergo. The routing on the 3T's has also been designed for the new bar-end junction box, and the 3T stem will allow me to use the Bar Fly stem mount to keep the bars totally clean (if they ever come back into stock!). Finally I'm not a massive fan of logos on bars and stems and the stealth models of these are really subtle with a lovely little Italian flag that echos the rear of the C64's seatpost.

Agreed. I removed the Deda logos with some nail polish remover. Just took a few seconds.

I really can't imagine using another bar after using the Superzero. I just love the shape, especially riding on the tops.

That's the most important thing - they're a lovely bar for sure.

Cal guessed right

:lol:

Thanks Tommy. Looking forward to seeing yours next!!
Cheers Guy. I was just trying to picture how much more seat post and spacers I would be showing compared to yours. I’ve clicked onto this thread a few times over the last couple of days to be honest (sad I know!). But I just can’t over emphasis how much I like your set up. I think the colour scheme really matches the components you’ve chosen so well.
