Nice! Another tall rider. I ride a 61 R3 and 63 CAAD/EVO.

Looks cool and a very nice weight. Props on the Lightweights.

That's some serious love-spread to all the major groupset manufacturers.

Wouldn't you be happy on the size smaller frame?

1415chris, the 61cm frame fits me perfectly. I am 6'4/193cm. The major change from my previous road bike ('05 61cm Bianchi Giro) is the 225mm head tube. The Giro is at 195mm, the 58cm R5 is 199mm. I like to ride centuries but they can get uncomfortable if the position isn't right for 5h. I haven't had a problem yet on this bike.

Doyler and Kumppa, I totally agree. It is a strange build list to be sure. The bike arrived with DA9000 and a very short rotor crank. I switched the crank for the 177.5mm SRAM, and like the campy shifting a little more than shimano. I'd prefer a more matched cockpit and group set, but this is working well. There are a couple of things I would like to change, like the saddle and up front gearing, before I try to match more parts

Recently upgraded a couple of components and shaved around a quarter pound: Arione 00 (147g) and Bontrager XXX seatpost 330mm 5deg (160g with 7x9mm ears)! Slowly updating components to make a lighter and more cohesive build

I like it. Good weight for a large frame (what is going on, are all the newbies on WW giants these days? :wink: ) and I always love bits o'Campagnolo on a Cervelo. :thumbup:
