Just delivered today. I was hoping to get it built up before Saturday, but I don't have the time. It'll be done by Monday. Build list is below. Bad pic, I know. I'll get some better ones when the build is complete.

Weights (actual)

Frame: RS 61cm - 1060g
Fork: 3T Funda Pro (uncut) - 371g
Ahead headset (including top cap, etc.) - 77g
Insert: Alu (not including apoxy) - 20g

Seatpost: Syntace P6 (27.2 x 350)- 217g (came with frame)
or the new Alpha Q Prolite (27.2 x 280) - 168g

I've got both sitting next to the frame, and they both look great! What does the WW hive-mind think?

Rest of the build:
Saddle: Selle Italia SLK
Brakes, Drivetrain, shifters, chain - Dura Ace
Crankset: FSA K-Force Light
Wheels: Reynolds Attacks or the DV46 if the PF group buy goes through.
Stem: Ritchey 4-Axis Matrix
Bars: Ritchey Evos

The only downside? People are going to think it's my fat ass bending those seatstays! :oops: Now if someone will just buy my ZX3 frameset....

Nice parts you got there.
I only have experience with the syntace seatpost. It's a nice post and easy to adjust. It offers a variety of saddle positions by moving the rail support.
Why didn't you just get the DA cranks ?

Are you going to keep the Canyon as well?

But looking forward to it, haven't seen an RS built up yet. I'd be tempted to use the Alpha Q if it fits - one bolt adjustment is handier than two on the fly, and hell, its lighter, what more do you want! :roll: :)
This board would be a nicer place if everyone would take themselves less seriously.

I almost miss Mr Search...

Yes and no... I'm keeping a canyon, but not my 06 F10. I've got an 08 white Ultimate CF Pro Series frameset on order. But it won't be here until April sometime.

"White is the new black... black is the new white." Who cares! I'll have one of each! :D

Finally took some pictures.

As it's configured in the pictures, the weight is 7510g. About 150g of that is the 705 and it's wireless transmitter.

The Reynolds Attacks are fitted with the new Stan's NoTubes road kit and Hutchenson Fusion 2 Tubeless tires.

I still have to set the stem to the right height, cut the steerer, and apoxy in the the insert. That should save a few grams.

Sweeeeet!!! I showed your bike to some of my roadie co-workers and they crapped themselves. One of them slobbered on my keys over the Garmin, at least I think it came from his mouth (>_<).
When you get a chance, tell me what you think about them wheels.

Very nice

Bottle Cages ? They look tastey.

And can I ask why the large set of sprockets and blue pedals ?

The head tube is 220mm... 20mm longer than the R3 in a comparable size. I'm not sure that the of the seat tube measurement. Cervelo doesn't list it.

The bottle cages are the Ravx Alpha X. They're about 30g each, but they do hold the bottle very securely.

Steve, if you're referring to the 12-27 cassette... I have it for two reasons. One, there is a lot of climbing in my area. Two, I'm a Master Fattie! :wink:

The pedals I've had for a while. When I purchased them blue was the only color the Stainless came in.

Come on guys! You 're going to give me a complex! I'm only 1.9 (6'3"). It's not like I'm Yao Ming sized or anything!

The RS clearly is big but it doesn't look that big. Nice build :thumbUp:

DC41, Why did you choose a RS instead of a R3?

And, after riding it, do you feel that you made the right decision?

I'm looking for a 61 cm Cervélo R3 or RS, and haven't made up my mind yet.... The reason to think of the RS is that I'm actually a bit too tall (195 cm) for the 61 cm-frame and the extra 2 cm head tube length might prevent the distance between the saddle hight and the steer hight to be too large.
