Really nice build :thumbup:, low profile wheelsets suits very well on R-series Cervelo frames.
Is that seatpost collar one-off piece, or does MCFK sell those?

Grear biuld. I would just change the stem. Kcnc looks very cheap next to the rest of the gear.

Is therre anything that you can do to get this to 4999g. It looks so close to being under 5kg

Very light bikes often look ugly, but this has both weight and looks on its side. Chapeau sir, but 4,999, yes.

Great looking bike. I really like Cervelos with the shorter head tube, Once they go over 54cm they loose the stealthy look . I think the older bikes looked better with the shorter head tube .This bike looks super and a nice choice of components .

Very nice build :thumbup:

Frankly though, I find the frame weight quite disappointing given the price difference between the R5 and R3, I would have thought the latter would be in the same ball park as yours, weight wise at least for a 51cm.

Thanks for the comments and positive criticism. Optically, the looks of the high profile EDGE wheels unsurpassed, but in view of the weight is the AX Lightness set the only correct choice.
Regarding the weights of some elements, there is a small number of parts: unfortunately relatively large essential parts; such as frame, fork and crank that I didn't weight for myself. These are thus estimates. I'm very curious to the exact weight of the frame in this particular bike.

To answer the question for my choice of Campagnolo Super Record UT crankset, Campagnolo's crankset is actually a very good option. I do not like the looks of the Rotor's crank yet I do love THM's Clavicula M3 crank. However, since this would be over 400, - euro more expensive, the weight difference would be +/- 100gr and still had more than 6 weeks for delivery, I opted for the Campagnolo crankset. Chances are here in the future an upgrade occurs.

Sub 5kg will be within reach, most certainly when the crankset would be upgraded with the THM crank. Yet some further tuning is possible such as: Shifter clamps, bolt tuning and some other parts.

Awesome bike Jip. As others have said, ultra weenie bikes are usually not aesthetically pleasing. This one is light and beautiful.

Bravo.

Stunning! Incredible wheels. 870g for the pair!

Not at all keen on the campagnolo/SRAM mix. Go for rotor.
