I found that the internal cable housings take lots of time. I was not able to find any pictures of other Rca bikes with mechanical shifting. I would have liked to look at their housing lengths. I probably have my rear brake housing up at the handlebar a little longer than the Cervelo pictures. Many of the Cervelo housings looked a little on the short side but that might be for picture taking.

I took some time and sanded down the top cap and headset spacers and re lacquered them in a satin finish to match the frame. The finish has more of a gloss than the R5ca.

I like to use I-Link housing at the rear brake because it offers more freedom of movement. It took several attempts to get the correct length.

I could have put on some RZR wheels with 160 gram tires for a super low weight. I know other riders prefer other tires, but these tires work best for me on the roads that I ride. This picture is the bike I ride and it will get mud on it, hopefully soon.

The Rotor BB that comes with the frameset is heavy at 110 grams, I have to scratch my head and wonder why Cervelo includes Rotor products. They are some of the heaviest products on the market. Their cranks are heavy and I find that they have hard edges on the crank arms. If I hit my ankle on the crank it takes off some skin, that only happened once long ago and I have never had one of their products again. I used the THM BBright bottom bracket and it weighed 91 grams.

Frame without hardware is 622 grams

Cut fork 267 grams
