Here are the weights of the frame set items.
Frame- bare with front and rear derail hangers-1269 gr
fork uncut- with crown race - 352 gr
seatpost- 221 gr
seapost collar/wedge- 18 gr
rear brake mount- 18 gr and will be putting a ti screw there to lighten
the inside of the tubes, in the parts that I can see are also better finished. Both of my S3's had lots of bonding goop from attaching the headset races and bumps of plies tht had moved in the moulding process.
2013 red- new of course
Zipp 404 fire crest tubulars " black" - existing
Fsa k force bbright crankset- replacing quarq and is only one actually designed for this and not using spacers like SRAM or rotor
Zipp cockpit or stock- not sure yet
My size 54 S5 team bare frame (with hangers) was 1.34kg, fork 359g. I was told mine was the first batch of S5 - excess from Team Garmin-Cervelo production batch.
Looks like Cervelo improved on the weight.
One replacement was due to a seatpost rocking issue on some S3's
Neither was a failure.
I keep going back because of the great customer service. There are not many companies out there that stand behind there produce as well as cervelo has for me. Why would I want to change?
Also there are not many Aero bikes that I would like that has a combination of good price and support.
There is the Foil but they have a 5 year frame and 2 year fork warranty that is reduced to 3 and 2 years, respectively, if you do not pay for yearly maintenance checks. It will most likely be too stiff for the miles and miles of chip seal i have the displeasure to have to ride.
There is also the Specialized but I do not get any deal on the Venge and from a test ride and others reviews,again, it is not good for the miles and miles of chip seal that I have to ride. My friends have had great warranty experience from this company though.
I do not like the Felt AR.
Blue is incredibly hard to find and I have no friends that have them so I did not consider.
I would definitely consider a Trek as I can get a deal and they have good cust service but they are very late to the game on aero bikes. Actually thinking about it they have been late to just about all games since 1990.
