Seems like Dumoulin's already testing the new R5... looks like integrated cabling (finally), but nice to see they've kept the classic look with the seat stays. Would be nice if they went with a threaded BB, but that seems unlikely given it's Cervelo.

It also looks like they're coming back to slimmer downtube.. somewhere beetwen current model and older ones... which I think is good

it is the FSA internal system. I hope you can still choose between this and standart stem...

While I am hopeful about a new R5d, this looks suspiciously like the old.....
What else appears new besides the lack of cables which could be attributed to the FSA internal system?

You think? All their other hidden cable bikes use in house systems. Not sure why they'd suddenly go for off the shelf.

The fork looks different, and the top of the seatstays.

Really not a fan of the straight 1-1/2" HT look, but that's what happens with ACR...

Am also asking why? The acr is not a particularly light implementation and given Cervelo history of making their own stuff (sometimes innovative), is this a reflection of erosion of engineering post Vroomen and White sell-out?

Great to see another FSA implementation. Hopefully that will force them to make a proper stem for it, not a 230g Al6061 solution.

The new Argon18 Nitrogen released 1 or 2 month ago.
It has also the FSA ACR system, but if you look the pdf you can change the FSA Headset with a Token Headset. There you can use any kind of 1 1/8 stem and bar combo.
The cables go in the st quite similar to the trek-emonda-system. I can post a screenshot from the a18 pdf later if you want.

edit: what i wantet to say: maybe its also possible with the R5 so you can use your cool lightweight stuff :)

They will likely put something like the Vision Metron 5D Arc Integrated

Thanks! I have found the assembly manual on Argon18 website. Argon18 uses atypical solution because it has a hole in the fork steerer. Usually bikes using FSA ACR doesn't have that which means you can't use Token:( There is no way how to route front brake hose into its place on fork with Token if the bike has no hole in steerer.

Token
acr with one calbe trough the forkrake
acr same as token
