good to see a cervelo without the seemingly inevitable but ugly rotor crankset

the easton stuff will surely be light, but imo looks a bit clumsy on the bike

Just seen it listed on eBay as a 54.

Naturel, you upgraded to a RCA then?

not upgrade to RCA, just need money for other projects... :thumbup:

It is well a 54 model.

And it is available on Ebay or via a private message.

Photo just after a ride, so probably not ideally set up.

Brief spec:

Cervelo s5 vwd 2013 51cm
Dura Ace 7970 grouppo 172.5/11-23/Rotor bb/Stick lipo in seatpost
Fsa os115 -17 120mm stem
Fsa K-Force 400mm carbon bar
Selle Italia SLR saddle
Zero Gravity brakes/Swiss Stop yellow pads
Zipp 303 Firecrest CC wheels/Conti 4000s 23mm tyres
Look Keo Blade Ti 16Nm pedals
Elite Patao cages

Currently 6.9 kg, which is 300g lighter than the same components on the 2011 Team s5 frame it replaces.

I prefer the black paint of the Team version as the matt white flashes on the vwd look like they will be very hard to keep clean. Only a very minor issue on a fantastic bike though.

Would like to upgrade to 9070 next year.

I think that's the first s5 that looked proportionally correct to me... nice job man!

Cervelo Prodigy 51cm 8.16kg exactly. Not the lightest but hands down the best ride I have ever experienced.
Looks like I made a new 90 Proof friend

This is my Cervelo S2 build, just in time for winter, doooh. I bought the frame used but in really good condition. Most of the parts came from my old Colnago C40, and then few new bits where bought off Ebay, Stem, handlebars, bar tape, cables..
Build list (weights in grams)
Cervelo S2 Frame w headset & saddel clamp 1185
3T Funda Pro Fork 408
Seatpost (Cervelo) 193
Front Wheel with tape 50mm Carbon Clinchers, with Novatech Hubs. 739
Read Wheel with tape 50mm Carbon Clinchers, with Novatech Hubs. 950
Novatech QR´s 106

Tubes 180
FSA megaexo BB 108

Total 7598

Immediate plans for upgrade, are:
Black saddle, I have a Selle Italia SLR but the leather is very worn, and its cracked in the base, so looking for another.
Plan to add some Veloflex gumwalls
Tilquist Garmin holder is bought but not mounted. (lovely pice of kit!)

More longterm plans (when the current things are worn out)
Campagnolo Record Carbon Crankset
Lighter Casette
Lighter Chain.

Budget as is now was around 1600€

Hope you like it :)

Love the S2 build! Crankset seems a bit incongruous though... was there a reason for it? Definitely not on the same level as the rest of the kit
