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.
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! Now if someone will just buy my ZX3 frameset....

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!
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!

I just don't want it to break! (it's happened before )
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.

When you get a chance, tell me what you think about them wheels.
But my top 5 cervelo!
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!
The pedals I've had for a while. When I purchased them blue was the only color the Stainless came in.

I made it already, but it sank down the list

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.
