Haven't tried it yet. I will post some comments as soon as I will. I bought it for less than 1/3 of its original price btw. :)

My experience with the c64 saddle is that it is very comfortable but unfortunately for me it - like most bare carbon saddles- chews up my bibs like mad. Probably an individual issue for me, but the sharp edges of most carbon saddles make a mess with my bibs. I have tried to sand off the edges etc to no avail.

I had been using an SLR for many years so I expect C64 to be as comfortable. Let's see about the bibs chewing issue...

Lovely looking saddle kgt, but why has it got 76g printed on it, if it weighs 101g, do their scales not work very well. Lol. :)

Mine does not have the 76gr print. I guess it is an updated one, after they put it on scale :) There are several version online, mine is like the last one:

Picked up Look Carbon Blade Pedals...mulled over 12nm or 16nm for the longest time. Just went with 12nm in the end.

Replacing my Look Keo Blade - 8nm which felt too loose for me.

It'sh hard to stop buying these tyres, when you consider the quality and the price you can have it for these days.
And "growing boy needs his..." new longer stem :)
