so I finally found an in stock S5 so I could team up for the 1000 off. I did not want the ultegra group so I am selling to a friend and will build up with new 2013 red when it comes in or if that runs late Red "black" for now.

Here are the weights of the frame set items.

Frame- bare with front and rear derail hangers-1269 gr
fork uncut- with crown race - 352 gr
seatpost- 221 gr
seapost collar/wedge- 18 gr
rear brake mount- 18 gr and will be putting a ti screw there to lighten

There is left over polish in some areas and other than the pocket behind the bottom headset bearing that they could not get to with the polisher the finish is great. I have had an SLC, actually two as the paint came off the first one, an S3, actually tow of those as well because of a warranty issue and now a S5. This one has the best finish so far on the outside but I did like the see through tinted clear on my first S3 better than the black on this one.

the inside of the tubes, in the parts that I can see are also better finished. Both of my S3's had lots of bonding goop from attaching the headset races and bumps of plies tht had moved in the moulding process.

I am looking forward to build pics and final weight. This is my size frame, so good reference for me :D

Any plans to lighten the load with exotic componentry?

ajh,

How long is the seatpost? I'm thinking of getting the same size, but I need to have my saddle height at 79cm (short torso).

This is one of the lighter S5 weights I've seen so far (not VWD). Some of the early ones are getting in the 1300 range.

Very good weight.

My size 54 S5 team bare frame (with hangers) was 1.34kg, fork 359g. I was told mine was the first batch of S5 - excess from Team Garmin-Cervelo production batch.

Looks like Cervelo improved on the weight.

So you have had four Cervelos and a 50% failure rate ? And you buy another? What some companies would give for such faith!

One replacement was due to paint on the fist batch of SLC's

One replacement was due to a seatpost rocking issue on some S3's

Neither was a failure.

I keep going back because of the great customer service. There are not many companies out there that stand behind there produce as well as cervelo has for me. Why would I want to change?

Perhaps you would want to buy a frame that doesn't fail? :noidea:

I like new bikes for free. Why would I want to keep the same bike or have to pay for a new one? Also there were no failure. I could still be riding the first SLC but it would have many patches of no clear or of paint missing. The S3 may have developed an issue after a long time of the post rocking. It was more of an annoying cracking sound every time it moved that was a little discerning. The noise was just the bottom of the post wedge unsticking from the rear of the seat tube as I moved forward onto the rivet and then back again.

Also there are not many Aero bikes that I would like that has a combination of good price and support.

There is the Foil but they have a 5 year frame and 2 year fork warranty that is reduced to 3 and 2 years, respectively, if you do not pay for yearly maintenance checks. It will most likely be too stiff for the miles and miles of chip seal i have the displeasure to have to ride.

There is also the Specialized but I do not get any deal on the Venge and from a test ride and others reviews,again, it is not good for the miles and miles of chip seal that I have to ride. My friends have had great warranty experience from this company though.

I do not like the Felt AR.

Blue is incredibly hard to find and I have no friends that have them so I did not consider.

I would definitely consider a Trek as I can get a deal and they have good cust service but they are very late to the game on aero bikes. Actually thinking about it they have been late to just about all games since 1990.

On other news I have already lost 2 grams as I have found a Ti bolt for the rear brake mount. I could lose another 2 grams going to alum but I do not trust that for a brake mount.

So how do you like the S5 compared to your prior S3?
