Sharp looking build. Congrats!

Definitely agree about the difference between the R3 and 5 framesets. I never had one of this generation, but I went R3-R5 (and then R5-RCA) and the difference is very noticeable. The R3 rides great. Comfortable, stable, etc. The R5 rides like it's on rails.

I've never liked the R5 but I like yours.

Fell in love with this color scheme instantly, so decided to get one of those as well. Here with Enve 5.6s. With proper climbing wheels should be around 6500g.

It's such a gorgeous color scheme, isn't it? Did you get yours from Excel, or did other shops get some, as well?

Excel Sports. Apparently I got the last 54cm frame they had. Bike24 in Germany has some limited edition framesets as well, but not this specific color scheme.

I do believe that we are the only two that have this color scheme, then. I live in Colorado, so picked mine (also 54cm) up. It was the only one available, but they did say that they were getting another one in shortly...and it looks like you are the one that got it.

Pretty cool to see that they ended up in different parts of the world.

Random observation: the shadow of the right drop is aligned so perfectly with the left drop that it makes the frame look see through LOL.

(also the shadow looks like a penis :( )

Damn, that's light. Both of yours.

I'm usually not a fan of black/matte bikes, but that looks quite nice in real life...a lot nicer than on the website.
Did you leave off the secondary seatpost clamp and dust cover on purpose?
