Nice! And thanks for the link Crank.

Around £63 delivered to the UK, was about to duck out of the order but justified it by telling myself it's two mounts. It says it includes a light mount. Any way to use it to get an Exposure Strada on there? I emailed these guys before but they didn't reply to me..

EDIT: Christ. Just realised. Customs charges.. which also then mean fixed fee clearance charges. Going to be stupid money for this in the end.

Nice cheers! Will cancel and reorder. Hope it comes with light mount accessory too :shock:

Edit: 20 Euros delivery from Jedi Sports. Crazy! Ordered anyway with some DSP camo bar tape to meet the minimum order total. Will work out a little better than buying tape in U.K. And mount from barfly.

20 day lead time, so pics will have to wait.

Please let us know how the purchase from Jedi Sports goes on.
Price is good, but the purchase limit and outrageous shipping cost put me off.
From BF directly, extremely expensive, with current exchange rate and shipping it will cost around £70!, no thank you. On top of this VAT may be applied which will be followed, as you mention, by clearance charges, making this purchase a bit ridiculous.
Will wait till it shows up in UK shops, hopefully with more digestible price.

In the meantime, stem mount is more aero :)

Really is outrageous and feel mugged. Quite annoyed at Cervelo for not coming out with a solution when they released the S5. An obvious issue so to ignore it seems callous to me :shock:

Edit: should have had more wit and asked you if you wanted a mount too from Jedi when I saw the delivery and min order hurdles.

Hindsight eh :oops:

Seems not, example:
https://www.racycles.com/product/detail/9390

Lists the product and price, but says you need to contact them (and probably collect).

Cervelo hate mail order like Apple hate tax. I tried everything to get a Cervelo shipped to me, shot down every time.

Find the nearest retailer for Cervelo and ask them to order it in. All sounds a bit, retro. What can you do.

When doing bike fit there I saw Cervelo aero bar on the display there.
