As far as the newer R3 and R5s go, not too many problems (no more than any other company). The old R3s had the dreaded BB problem as you found so many times.

Look very nice. I like it. Just would have expected the build to be a little lighter with an R5 build.


Thanks...I thot 6.5Kg without even trying (no WW tuned parts) wasn't bad. You are right, I can definitely go lighter. I am securing some Reynolds Thirty Two tubulars which should drop weight to just a hair over 6.0 Kg.

Here is the frame/fork pics that I forgot to post earlier.

Just to be clear I wasn't being critical. I think it is a great looking build. :thumbup: I just would have thought the build would be closer to 6.1-6.2 rather than 6.5. But looks like you have that sorted out with by planning some new wheels.

You still happy with the ride quality and feel of the frame?
