Beautiful bike! I myself would drop the white bar tape and maybe get rid of the red on the bars. But that's only minor details, lovely bike!

You know it's about the details. :) This is what we do here on Weight Weenies.

Yes they are. I would like to pull the trigger on a newer generation R5 but don't know if the improvements are that much better.

Not really a fan of Cervelo's but this is fantastic!

I really liked Cervelo's 2012 colors, I had the black/red R3 Team and always wanted the R5, very nice looking bike

Nice build. I have one built here. Very light frame. Not a WW build, but came out to 6.94kg (Ultegra pedals - ready to ride) for a 61 frameset. Force 22 group and Red Quarq. Alloy stem and bars.
One of the main diff between this and my ‘16 R5, besides a bit lighter weight and the internal routing, is the room for wider tires.

That's a good weight for a 61. I'll have an update coming soon. Pulled the trigger on the full DA9100 mechanical group set. Will do some weight tuning to my seat post too. I'll post my wife's BMC ALR01 Build in a separate page in a few weeks.

Beautiful timeless bike. Well done. Constructive criticism... Drop the ENVE stem and 3T post and go with Deda Superzero. (The lines match the boxy tubes on the Cervelo) and black tape with red stitch to set it apart from the others. Just my $.02


Yes, I can look into that as long as those components are lighter. I do like the clean set up of the Enve Stem/Garmin Combo. I hadn't seen BLK tape with Red Stitch before. What brand?


Not quite Black with Red Stitch but this is what I use on my Colnago (Cinelli Red Hook reversible Bar Tape):

Woah! Now that's refined. For a Proper Gentleman. Nice!! I did update my bike with a new group. I'll submit photos once I can work FlickR.

Updated Photos! Complete DA9100 group now incl. pedals. Didn't get a chance to ride it yet. Blah... I love the updated group over the DA9K. So refined.
