I sold my SLR01 end of summer this year, and wanted a lighter and climbing bike to built. Wanted to get the new 2014 Cervelo R5 but fund is tight right now. I really wanted to get back on a Cervelo R series frame, did some search and 2012 Cervelo R5 VWD is one one the lightest R5. Search a few bike shop in the area and got lucky to get a new 2012 R5 VWD frame, fork, bb and 3T seatpost.

3T Dorico LTD 186g

All parts from my SLR01 will be transfer to this new build.

...thanks for posting pics of frame being properly weighed...w/out ANY hardware. I was under the impression that the 2013 R5 was identical to the VWD under the paint, but your frame weight makes me wonder if I might be wrong. My 54cm weighed in at 760 and yours is 20-22 grams lighter...perhaps the thinner paint on yours, compared to my thicker(?) matte paint, explains the weight difference?

Enjoy the ride!

Love that Look! I did the same with my CAAD.....the deals on the prior year models are too good to pass up. Looks like this is going to be a beautiful build. I like the paint on this better than the newer models, but that's just me.

So sick. Really love the parts you've chosen; looks like a really balanced and proportionally aesthetic setup you've got.

That bike's gonna be such a blast to ride up the climbs!
