Does not really matter just as long they are all the same.

My size is 54.

The R5 you weighed is the heaviest I've heard of. Typically mid 800 grams for a 58 cm

Thanks for the information, I thought the R5 was supposed to be lighter?

Again....the numbers you are reporting are not correct. A 56cm R3SL will not weigh 805gm with everything hanging on it (that is just too light), nor will a 58cm R5 weigh 960gm with everything hanging on it, not even with the headset bearings either.

Here are some real weights from frames I own, weighed completely bare (w/out der hanger, seatclamp, cable guide, H2O bolts, headset bearings):

2010 R3SL 56cm, 840gm

2011 R5 54cm, 825gm

just for kicks, i weighed a 58cm s3. It weighed 1090, which seems about right, given that they are a bit heavier than the slc-sl and the 58cm slc-sl on the front of light-bikes.de right now weighed 1032g.

i always weigh frames with bb cable guides, rear derailleur hangers, and seatpost clamps. It makes sense to. The post clamps on these bikes are proprietary (except for the r3sl).

and i forgot the picture, but the 2011 r3 was 1010g. pretty close to the r5 weight.

ps. sorry about photo quality. resized them for WW, went too far. shouldve cropped some junk out too.

I got the 2011 r3 weight from a coworker. 990g, but without the seatpost collar. to keep the weights standardized, 20g collar=1010g,

I am confused, I thought the California was all about making the bike lighter, yet the 2011 R3 and R5 are heavier?
