I was fascinated to learn they can only build around 12 c-64's a day. The operation is very close to that of a custom builder, but maybe with a few more resources available.

That doesn't differ from C60 that much - as per http://granfondo-cycling.com/industry-v ... ago-bikes/ the C60 production rate was about 15-20 frames per day.
Given that the C64 is a new one so that they aren't that effective yet it isn't very surprising.

A few shops in China have already (legit :twisted: ) stock in different sizes.

Yes, the frames are ready to purchase. I thought the announcement on Friday, was going to be just that... basically an announcement with no bikes actually available for sale until who knows when. They really did a good job of keeping this one under wraps as far as actual frame availability goes.

either less effective or targeting a lower sales rate. impossible to know here.

I firmly believe since you are pretty active on this C64 topic, you should aquire a nice C64, add another build thread to your list and since you haven't quite done one yet, do a photo AND Video build thread on a C64 hahaha

I'm sure the guys here would agree. :up:

The MSRP of $6,000 limits sales. If frames are ready, they probably have already made a certain number in each color/size to fill out the distribution channel.

Sold my C60 frame just a few days ago, and the release of the C64 has hit resale prices.

But already have myself down for a C64 with deposit paid, so it be all ready to be used for current summer. Much better than a lot of brands where new launch bikes are only available towards end of summer in Europe.

i think i will order one too. the c64 just looks great and i do like all the upgrades. the water bottle mount is also good in my opinion, similar to what de rosa does with its frames. the clean looking seatpost area is also a plus.

Sigma Sports has/had a bunch of C60 options on sale. Have to say the C64 is pretty appealing.

...
Plastic inserts: I have a feeling these plastic things as cable guides may not last. The bigger problem is they don't fit snug enough. The downtube port leaves a gap which water will surely find a way in.
i had a loose cable guide in my Parlee Altum...so I put on Sugru around the cable insert and put it in and used a rubber band to hold it while it cured.
came out nice and tight with no leaks. great stuff.

Re Sugru - actually I was thinking along the lines of using such kind of material to fill the bottom of the "pool" under the DT bottle cage so that water & stuff don't get stuck there that much.

... and at £3,500 for the frameset plus seat post Sigma are selling supposedly 'discounted' C60's at exactly the same price Maestro have been selling them at for the past couple of years. :shock:

I doubt they'll be selling out of those anytime soon.
