A helping hand. Also, how do you like the Ventoux?

Ditto, kudos for a bike properly fit and looking mean.

+1.....0 or -6 degree stem with no spacers looks a bunch better than a -17 with a stack. Mean looking build!

Have to agree with the comments above, best R5ca build I have seen.
Gaulzetti Cabron Disc = (weight unknown)
Rock Lobster Team Tig SL Disc = (pending)
Sold: Ridley X-Night Disc = 7.80 kg | Ridley Noah FAST = 6.86 | Ridley Fenix = 6.74 | Raleigh HiLife = 7.46 | Fuji SST = 7.34 | Van Dessel FTB = 7.58

Curious, how can you tell...have you actually seen him on the bike?

Nice bike too...

You can look at a bike and know if it is properly fit- no spacer tower, nice aggressive bar drop (this is a race bike after all), lots of seatpost (this is a compact frame), saddle is nice and centered on it's rails so we know he has the right setback dialed in, even how his bars are oriented with a nice flat straight ramp all the way out to the levers with a relatively long stem (that is properly suited to a racing bike)

Even without seeing the rider, I often see builds that say "you don;t belong on this frame"
You often see race bikes like the Rc5a or Wilier zero.7 or Evo turned into a "touring" bike for a middle aged dentist with level bars and seat, spacer tower, all suited up and ready to go at 12 mph into the Freaks Topic.


Cervelo race bikes are built for tiny, flexible, bike-racer types, and I bet this one gets to go fast.

I dont like staggering Lightweights (Ventoux front with Std 3 rear) though, but I Think the OP might be very light and therefore can get blown around with a Std 3 on the front in the hills? Am I right OP, do you stagger them for wind reasons or just fashion?

This isn't the post for it but I don't agree...aesthetically the bike looks correct to you. Until you see the actual rider on the bike you really can't tell for sure...we're only seeing 50% of the picture?

Anyway it's a nice bike...enjoy!

is this a fit debate or are we looking into the details of the bike.

Internet bike fit experts, please step back.

for the doubters on my cervelo, I'm attaching photos below. The measurements are correct and my position also. Thank you all for the compliments on my bike
