I have not ridden them yet. I will be able to tell you this weekend. I tried to mimic the rim version I have on my Protos which is light and responsive.

UPS screwed up the delivery of my wheels. Don’t know where they are right now. Decided to proceed with the build anyhow. When and if they arrive from Europe, it will be easy to mount the rotors and ride

It is going to be an awesome creature....I would be intrigued to see a black one in the flesh

Could you please let us know the weights for the frame and fork ;) ?

Cheers :up:

I didnt manage to weigh it before the build started. I was a bit too overzealous to see her finished and sort out a disc brake hub compatibility issue. Bike should be ready tomorrow.

Another C64 owner came in at 1100+ grams for the frame with headset and bottom bracket sleave. See here https://weightweenies.starbike.com/foru ... 7#p1417877

That looks pretty bloody good....Mean as...
Nice proportions and very well finished.

I really like how the tan wall tyres set off the whole bike

I'm a fan a disc brake road bikes, it's a divisive statement I know

Out of interest how much do the wheels weight?

How are you enjoying it?

I didn’t have the opportunity to weigh them as they arrived via international courier and my mechanic retrieved them from my building staff.

I will ask the builder and get back to you. They’re based in Italy and indicated they are on holiday.
