Looks awesome, bar the red bit on the post. Maybe consider repainting or changing to a 3T post?

I didn't go with the 3T because the clamp on the Doric (I use a zero setback) isn't the best. I just grabbed the FSA because it's what was in the shop at the time. Once again, perhaps the ENVE post would be a good fit here.

It's kind of strange though, because at first I didn't quite like the red on the post either. However, my club kit, which is blue and white, does have a noticeable amount of red sponsorship logos which actually match the post rather well. Plus, my shoes are red and white so it comes together quite nicely, albeit unexpectedly.

However, I might just choose to keep the red off the bike altogether. I still haven't decided on the post. Glad you dig the whole thing though!

That's a nice no nonsence machine! Cervelo's are after getting a little scarce on here especially in that colour scheme. Enjoy the ride.

Thanks! I was a bit unsure about the color scheme at first, mostly because my UW kit is black, white, and red, but luckily my club kit is white and blue so it works well. I'll be having tons of fun on it for sure!

Also, if anyone can give me the exact year of my Record group I'd appreciate it. I know it's some of the early stuff, but I'd like to have it pinpointed.

Cranks are odd. White 11 on red background is the SR colour scheme (opposite for Record). I wonder if because they are 165mm and very low volume sales Campagnolo has decided to only make one colour scheme and simply install steel or ceramic bearings to differentiate between them. However, what about Chorus?

Are the bearings ceramic or steel?

In any event, they would be 2011+ as that's when Campagnolo started with the red on the Record and Super Record 11s groupsets. The rest of the groupset has the 2009/2010 colour scheme.


The cranks are brand new--they were a special order. So they are from 2012. The bearings on them are ceramic. It says "Ceramic USB" on the top of the crank arm. Thanks for the info on the rest though. I have a hunch that they're 2009 but I'll see what else I can find out. Thanks!

I think 2009 due to the RD having shiny alloy components.


Got it. I'll stick with the 2009 estimate then.

Thanks. I'm fond of my different little beast. Our Campy Cervélos stand out in a good way :thumbup:

Thanks for the nice comments everyone. I'm really enjoying riding this bike. Just finished a week of training with the team in the Smoky Mountains of North Carolina (much different terrain from what I'm used to in Wisconsin) and this bike just loves to climb. It really is something special.

I'm hoping to get some better pictures sometime soon with a better camera. I'll post them as soon as I get them!

Got some new pictures here. I reduced the stack height of the headset by putting on a much lower top cover on the headset, and I swapped the 3T stem for a Thompson. The -10 degree of the Thompson helps me to achieve a better drop and compensates for the slack headtube angle, which happens to angle a -6 too far up for my liking. I'm now looking to get a Masterpiece seatpost to match the stem. Should have it pretty soon. I also swapped the tape for my preferred Fizik Microtex rather than that goofy velvety stuff they have. Here are the new photos:

For some reason I really like how the non-drive side looks:

and a nice little close up of the special "11 Speed" crank:

I'm hoping to put on Enve 3.4s by the end of the summer as well. I think that should really complete the blacked-out component look that I'm going for. Comments welcome! :beerchug:

Thanks! And of course, I'm 5'4", but my inseam is a relatively short 28.5 inches. I think the 48cm R3 is a perfect fit. The head tube is a little tall (hence the low stack of my top cover and angle of my stem) but I feel like it gets me in in a very efficient position.
