Nice build! I think the frame shape and colour scheme look quite tasteful, it's easy for something of that vintage to feel a bit dated, but this looks very fresh. Care to share the weight?

Cannondale Supersix 2008 (weight: 7.3kg)
B'twin Triban 540 (in bits)
Vitus "Benotto" 979 (weight: :? )

It's no weight weenie, my old Tarmac SL4 was lighter at 6.85kg but this rides so much nicer.

I weighed it when first built with Archetypes and DT240, 7.28kg, so with the FFWD it should be just over 7.1kg.

Nice man. That colours really grown on me. Such a rich red. I’m not sure about the stem. Sometimes I like it, sometimes I think it’s just a bit too much of a block. You can get proprietary spacers for it too so I’m sort of reserving judgement until I see the whole setup.

@guyc nice upgrade mate. Again, I think the enve stem can look a little beefy at times but 120mm slammed looks pretty dam cool!

At the moment I’ve got a deda superleggero on mine which was supposed to be a stop gap. It’s a little skinny for the frame perhaps but I quite like it. Maybe calnago’s pro vibe is the perfect middle ground. I’d probably have to get back into yoga to make it work though!

Cheers man. It's absolutely bang-on slammed at 120mm now. My God - what a bike this is. I've already put 1000 miles on it.

Suffolk on Sunday. Could probably justify 808s given how flat it is around here!!

Yes , stem is Colnago R41 . If you are ordering C64 with DA then normally you will get nice DEDA Superzero stem but there is an option to order with R41 at some extra cost .
Sorry not the best quality some pics from iphone ..
