Good looking bike, but maybe 1 size too big for you? I agree with junchen, never saw an r3 with such fork blades. They look identical to my first Scott CR1. Nevermind, I appreciate the effort and the result is nice, enjoy the ride!!

Some great detailing - but that's definitely not a Cervelo R3 frame!

updated, changed chainrings to 46/34 instead of 50/34 and installed veloplugs, ti bolts on stem, nylon bolts on bottle cages, and changed to hockey tape as bar tape. Got the bike down to 14lb flat (6.35kg)

I'm curious, why did you change to a 46t chainring?

Don't think it's too big. We need better pics.

It's totally one size too large, but the frameset was free so I make due I may go chinese frame route later on if I ever get Good communication from a frame I'm looking at.

I went 46t chainring because I live in a hilly area and would rather have a slightly easier gearing on the top end for rolling terrain TT

also it's lighter. I may go back if I ever go the extralite octaramp chainrings.
