Agreed -- have them on my other bike, also with SR11. Thing i'm not 100% sure about are the KCNC ti cables -- pretty significant weight savings but hopefully they do not stretch too much.

Any authorized Cervelo dealer/LBS can order this frame -- however, the higher volume dealers will porbably get their orders fulfilled faster. With regards to price, dealers have to abide by Cervelo's pricing policy -- there may be some room for negotiation, but not much.

Yea that's the worry.. For shifting it should be fine once they are stretched enough.. Not so sure about brake cables though.

If you pre stretch em enough it should be fine.

Re saddle choice: Have you tried that one before or other preferences when choosing the SI TF?
Keep us posted.


I have the same saddle on my other bike and find it quite comfy -- it has a big cutout in the middle, which helps on longer rides. Had the Fizik K1 before and although I liked the length of that saddle, allowing quite a bit of fore/aft movement, I ended up with NNS after long rides.

Interesting how they can make a leather covered saddle that weighs 66 grams. Add another 20 grams and you get a padded version. Will definitely lok into this. Thanks!

How about one of Jures new saddles. I'd be a hassling him for one if I used a std seat post for sure

Just received the gruppo last Friday (Campy 80th) but still waiting on bar and post (in transit from Germany). Hoping to get it all built up within the next couple of weeks.

Still haven't had a chance to weigh these -- will do so prior to install.

Looks pretty good to me. I'm definitely interested in seeing this bike built up! :beerchug:

I used them for the brakes -- plan was to use power cordz for shifters. those ti cables are great!
