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.

...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!
