Hi guys, I've seen this forum for a long time and visited every so often, but I'm dig'n the feel here compared to others. People seem to be knowledgeable and courteous. Some amazing rides in here too!

Hope to learn a lot and contribute a little (sorry I don't have much to offer).

My name is Aaron Hunter from Spencer, IA and I ride a 2012 Cervelo S5. Anyone from Iowa?

Aaron, welcome to the forum! :welcome:

I'm not sure about Iowa but I am one state over.

Any plans for upgrades on the Cervelo? Current build kit?

Juan

Stock as a rock (which is actually pretty disappointing for the money you spend). Weight, errrr I don't have a scale, but when I used a bathroom floor scale it looked to be about 8.07kg (heavy).

Only change from that pic is a Dura-Ace chain. Actually surprised how much less it weighs compared to an Ultegra solid pin.

Cranks gotta go! And since I live in "flat-as-a-pancake" great plains I'm dig'n the Rotor Flow crankset. But that new Campy groupset. UGH, decisions decisions.

Welcome! I have a wee soft spot for cervelos, and the bathroom scales would seem to be 'near enough', nothing some good weight weenieism cant fix though!

Update: Had some wheel rub issues I noticed and have a warranty frameset on the way. I've seen a lot of comments about bare frame weights, I'll get the shop to weigh before and after bb is pressed in (I should just spring for a ceramic bb) with a legit bike scale.

New frameset is in (fingers crossed tire has clearance), are ceramic BB's worth it? I've seen a few comments about low life span. I was dig'n the one from wheelsmfg

In my opinion no. Depends what sort of money they are asking for but it's never something I've been able to feel after putting one in... Ceramic wheels bearings however are a different story

Awesome, thanks for the info! I had them press in the stock SRAM BB the frameset came with. I need to get a digital scale and weigh everything individually now.

Here she is on the second ride. I like this paint scheme way more than the 2011/2012. Early next year I'll start throwing new parts at it and a stiff aero wheelset.

Thanks! Looking for cheap ways to drop weight. Anyone have any suggestions? I already replaced the obscene FSA headset top bearing cover for a veloflyte. Now that I know I like the feel of the bike with the stem slammed I'll trim the steerer tube. There's a Pro Turnix Carbon saddle at my LBS I want to pick next week or I'll order a Prologo Scratch CPC, can't decide. What about skewers? I see pricing and weight claims and reliability all over the place, but I'm sure my stock Fulcrum skewers are a bit porky.

I have been thinking about getting an aero frame, but I'm not sure what company to go with. How is Cervelo's built quality? have you had any problems with the frame since you have gotten it?
