Welcome! Love me the thought of a C60 / C64... especially a 45s, like yours, in my size.

What were you riding before? How this compare?

Is that really a 45s and not a 48s. It looks great. Many small frames these days end up looking like mountain bikes with a super sloping top tube and big fat tubes. This looks really well proportioned. Nicely set up. I really like it.

Thanks all for watching and your nice comments.

I am 168 and struggled between size 45 and 48 but finally settled on a smaller size to give the bike a better proportion by raising the saddle height and a lower stack. The saddle current sets at 67.5.

I previously rode a Pinarello Gan RS which is a very decent and faster bike indeed. The C64 feels more responsive and stiff compared to the Gan RS but bear in mind this C64 is built on top tier Shimano R9150 groupset while the Gan only uses Ultegra R8050. I would say the C64 is a more allrounder than the Gan.

Cheers

Very nice, mines also going to be 45S. I'm similar height to you so was tossing up between 45/48 as well

Every time this pic pops up I need a double take. If you wouldn’t mind, could you tell me the saddle to bar drop that is shown in the pic. And I’m presuming you’ve got 3cm of spacers underneath the stem, not including the top cap? I use good setups like this for reference to help decide frame sizes for certain munchkin friends of mine. Even with 3cm of spacers the whole thjng still looks very well proportioned, without too much drop, which is what I’m looking for for this particular munchkin. Thanks!

I haven't done a bike fitting for this new bike yet but I used my previous Pinarello's measurement to setup the bike. So based on my previous measurement the saddle to bar drop is 4.6cm and the spacers underneath the stem is 3cm.

I will do a fitting for this new bike soon and will see if I can keep this setup.

Cheers,

often times i feel like i'm the only one who actually thinks some space between the stem and the head tube looks better than the slammed look

Yes this definitely looks like a 48s. 45s have way more slope
