Hi,

I would like to know the different components of the bike using by Carlos Sastre for his victory in stage 13. What is its weight ? Is the stem a Time Monolink one ? Has anybody some pictures of this bike ?

Thanks,

8Oken

I'm pretty sure the stem sastre used is an easton model, seeing as CSC was sponsored by easton. Pretty much the whole front end fork, stem, bars were easton.

Just see this picture of Carlos Sastre's bike during the mountain stages of the last Tour de France. If the stem is an Easton one, I don't know this model :

When you click "previous photo" you can see almost the same bike with another stem. There is a difference. And as far as i can see it aint Easton.

The stem on the bike that my link goes to isn't an Easton one (I think). But when you click on "Previous photo", it seems to be an Easton stem. But what is the first one ? A Time Monolink stem ?

Its a Time Monolink, no doubt about that.
Fork is also Time, if you look at the pic you can see the declas.
Bar seems easton, seatpost FSA.

I'm not sure this is the setup for the Tour.
I thought this bike was a prototype used in the Dauphine Libere, and they changed some components for the Tour.

CSC are also sponsored by FSA - this is the new FSA K-Force Lite Stem. It's very nice looking with decals, similar to the new Deda Forza. The FSA K-Force Lite costs $130 US i think, i forgot the weight, i think 125 grams.

Sorry Superlite, but they claim their frame is SUB1000 gr... I don't know where you got that weight.

If you go to that link , http://www.efbe.de/defbefrm.htm , you'll find that actual weight is 925gr for a 54cm size.

You'll find as well that P3 frame weight is 1610gr.
A friend of mine rode this year a P3: he said that this was the most aerodinamic bike he had ever ridden (he is a 3 times Ironman World Championships Finisher, 8th overall in his category in 2002)...

Bye, Benz.

i had to jump in on this one. the r2.5 you can buy is more like 1100 plus. whatever Cervelo sent to efbe.de is not what the consumer will get im willing to bet.

i have seen and held a production r2.5 and it is not sub 1000 gram. i doubt it was sub 1250g.

Ok, let me add to my post. The R2.5 is around 1100g, the one that you are refering to (sub 1000g ) is the R2.5 SL model. It's not even available yet, and this is the frame that was ridden in the tour. Retail for frame $4000. Start saving.
