New models are heavier, but I'm looking forward to ride mine finally to feel if there's any difference comparing to 2010 model. I've read that it is much stiffer both in the bb and headtube areas. I was hoping that it'll be around 900g, but honestly if it rides at least half as good as it looks (and damn it looks good to me) thus I can't be more happy.
18' R5 coming soon...

Thanks for the weight info apLe :thumbup:

I'm extremely happy with my 2011 R3, whole frame is very stiff and especially the bb area. Frame is also very comfortable, thin seatstays absorb road roughness nicely and give smooth ride, I have few times even thought that rear tyre is flat ;). Black/red/white frame looks really nice, when I first saw pics of new paint job and frame desing back in august 2010 I had to have one myself. My build is not the lightest one, but I'm happy with it, about 6,3kg with pedals.
