Yes, another one. At least it´s a custom build...


Since I didn´t like the ride on the Cervélo S5 I built a year ago (handling like a wet noodle and comfortable as being beaten with a stick) I sold the frame and put the parts on a Canyon CF SLX frameset. I have previously ridden Cervélo R3:s and hoping this will be similar (but better). First ride as soon as the rain stops. Weight as pictured is 6680g.

I'd lose the white decals personally, go black on black. Or bring out the white with saddle and bar tape maybe?! Smart looking bit of kit, none the less.

I hate gum wall tires, but they don't look to bad on this setup. Overall very nice build!

This is beautiful!! I would go with black decals on the rims but other than that I wouldn't change a thing

Awesome build and even nicer setup. I think the bar tape looks a bit low end, but other than that it's a really superb build. :thumbup:

Looks great, but why do you have 38-50 chainrings?
