I forgot where I read this from, but I thought these MUD frames were all made in California. Not that I care, just a bit surprised.
Frame 958 g
(include: bare frame + chain stay protector, exclude: derailleur hanger, BB cable guide, seat post clamp)
Frame 987 g
(include: bare frame + chain stay protector + derailleur hanger + BB cable guide + seat post clamp)
Fork 400 g
(include: inner liner + star nut) never seen it like this before
AMAZING tire clearance as advertised
These photos were taken with a long reach caliper. Not that this frame needs it, is because I didn't remove the Ultegra brakes from the other bike yet.
Different wheelset, these GP4000s2 tires measured over 31mm.
Edit: spell checked...
I don't remember where I read that these R3 MUD frames were supposed to be made in California but whatever. I don't really care where these frames were produced, as long as it is under Cervelo's supervision, Chinese frame could be great frames too.
However, I think the likelihood of a counterfeit R3 MUD is not high. Although this frame is rear, but it isn't a well known high end frames like the R5 or the RCa. If I were a counterfeiter, I would counterfeit a more well known and high dollar frameset, like RCA, Dogma, or S-Works... etc. Wishful thinking?

Thanks for that info. Anything I should watch out for? Any periodic inspections that I can do to catch early signs of future failure?
So far everything "looks" structurally sound to my x-ray eyes.
After a long debate with myself, I've decided to put Ultegra 6800 on this bike over Campagnolo SR/Athena mix.
Per my calculation, this bike will come out at about 7,223 gram, or 15.9 lb.
Nice ride! would have loved to have found one 56.
I've been watching for R3 MUD on eBay since forever, and 1 frame per month is unusually frequent. I usually see it pop up once every 3 months. I guess is because of the weather so more people are selling their bikes.
