Cervelo S5 brother from another mother? Or may from the same mother?
It was bound to happen at a point, i didn’t expect to see it that soon though...
Looks quite similar with Cervelo, and it is also DI2 compatible ...

It is probably made by the same little Chinese men/women who make the S5, but to be able to do their own retail sales they have to change it a little in some way ... hence the probably slight differences from an S5.

The chinese copy is out for 2-3 months already. There are some differences if you look them side by side, especially on the back end.

Sweet... I'm a big fan of that 12k weave that has fallen out of fashion... The S5 is fugly, but the more I look at it, the more I like the looks... but I'm sick... :lol:

If it was UD then maybe! Other than that a lot of similarities but even more differences ...
