Hi All,
I finally sold my Wilier and bought a Cervelo S5 2012 model (white, red and black). I had this frame spraypainted (including decals) and did some carbon repairs... Matte black with bright orange accents.. and black glossy cervelo decal

Cervelo S5 56cm
Dura Ace 9000
Scope full carbon wheels
Rotor Power (53/39)
Garmin 500
3T ltd stem 12cm 3T aeronova bar 44cm
Speedplay titanium
Maxxis 22mm tyres

weight? it's an aeroframe so do not expect a lightweight racer... ±7,5 kg

it still is a 56cm frame... however this is model 2012... 179mm length head tube....
app they've 'updated' the frame to nowadays standard and cervelo 'shortened the headtube with 2,2 cm...

model 2012 56 cm headtube is 179 mm
model 2015 56 cm headtube is 157 mm

there's your difference...

Awesome bike, Monza36. Those tires seem made for the frame with their low build height.

Geoff, no issues whatsoever. I simpley asked rotor which bb would match with the crankset.. they recommended the pressfit bb30 (and off course the ceramic one)... Pressfit 4630 of the ceramic one 4630
