I agree 100% with the geometry comment. When they went to the taller headtubes, and Vroomen spouted off about how he knew it was what the world needed, they lost the plot!

I liked the "Vroomen White Design" on the chainstays.

I guess you haven't seen the picture of the R3 on page 5 with electronic groupset?

It's a good step forward. But hanging the battery off the bidon mount in 2014? Seriously?

Hopefully it will be compatible w/ the seatpost battery.

7 days until we find out though :)

edit:

RCA with battery on downtube:

RCA w/ seatpost battery:

So maybe it's just to demonstrate the Di2 compatibility? :noidea:

That top one looks like older DA so it's not compatible with an internal battery.

I would hope they would go with a internal battery mounted int he seatpost for the actual production bikes. If not anyone buying one should try and make a deal with their LBS to switch it out.

Hey, they got the R5 frame weight almost down to what my 2009 R3SL weighs. The fork probably weighs more than the Enve fork I have on it and the tapered HS would weigh more too.

I like the look and the aero.

What's that lump on the downtube between the bottle bosses? Locator for DI2 battery bracket?

r5: 830grams for a 56size

What? :?:
My 56, 2012 VWD is 780grams

What a progress! :noidea:

The fact is that Cervelo claims +9% bb stiffness and 15% front end stiffness. That sounds very good to me as I always felt lack of stiffness at the front end :thumbup:

Generaly, I am NOT impressed by the 2014 at all!
I expected more stiffness and weight around 700grams...close to RCA.

My impression is that Cervelo is really loosing its way :smartass:
They are not market leader anymore (used to be with R3/2006 and R5 VWD)

I like the look of the R series but am disappointed with the weight of the R5. I am really surprised it is so much heavier than the '12 R5 VWD. I was all set for a new R5 but not so sure now.

Sacrilege, or perhaps I'm biased because my 2008 Fuji SL/1 size small is a relatively porcine 860 grams and I don't want to feel the need to replace it, but perhaps they beefed it out slightly to improve reliability. That wouldn't necessarily be a bad tradeoff for those on the high side of 23 BMI.

Um you guys realize you're comparing the vwd with the base r5, right. I fully expect to see a new r5 vwd weighing well into the 700s. Also, cervelo's weights have been fairly dead on, if not overestimates of the actual weight, recently

@ justkeepedaling

There was no 2013 R5 VWD, not 100% sure there will be one for 2014. They did keep the 2012 VWD on the website for 2013 and it was $100 cheaper
