Interested in the weight of the whole bike, disc and rim. There still has to be a big difference between them when Tadej uses the rim version for climbing

Judging from the setup of Rui Costa's bikes, they always try to be anywhere from 6.8 to 6.9.
Of course when they're going for aero savings then weight penalty isn't a concern at all and then it would only really be a matter of curiosity.

Recieved my Cervelo R5 seatpost today, UD gloss black with traditional mounting (rather than the dyneema, cause I am old skool). It looks mint and only weighs 109.4g for 350mm which will be at least 100g saving on the factory post. Very happy with it!

Has anyone done their own decal swap? I've ordered a post and stem from r2-bike and they said they'll include the dark decals, but that both parts will come with the white ones. When I asked why, the R2 rep said: "we don't do it like that any more, because it's difficult to do in the warehouse, the company has also grown. We just send along decals and you can change the stickers yourself."

The other day I tried to put a Darimo decal on my laptop and it did not go well. If you have zero practice, a couple of extra decals might be a good idea.

I've changed my decals 3 times now on the bars.
Very easy to peel off and very easy to apply.

Hey guys!

I am thinknig about getting the new darimo seatpost for my sworks SL7. I am unsure which seatpost length I should order. Given that my SL7 is only due to arrive in a few weeks I cannot simply measure the current lenght exposed. I am a size 56 and have a seatpost hight (bb to center of saddle profile) of 82.1cm. I'll be using 172.5mm cranks. Any chance I could approximate the needed seatpost lenght with those parameters?

Looks like two yolks style Darimo seatpost just like what they use on SL7 seatpost shown below.
One stay side way as it should. Another one tilt to parallel to the bike in the picture in the reply above.
