Received this yesterday 2013 Cervelo S5 size 54cm. It's not a weightweenie frameset but will try to bring it down to low 15lbs.

very nice, care to share the frame + fork weights?
I write the weightweenies blog, hope you like it :)

frame is heavy I'm not sure what is the claim weight from Cervelo. 1300g with the FSA Pressfit BB, uncut fork is 371g. I'm guessing this is the white S5 from the 2012 line up with the new paint scheme.

That's a sexy looking frame - the seat mast is different!

It looks really well made and I love the matt black. Very technical looking and bang up to the minute. Nothing recreational about that frame, just pure race pedigree.

Except for the headtube length, thats pretty recreational.

true on the that and what sad is the fsa top bearing cap that came with it is about 15mm tall so I'm ditching that one and looking for a carbon 5mm cap to replace it. Build is on the way still waiting for the fd and rd to come. also Zipp Vuma Sprint on the way too.

while the wife and son taking a nap and before we head out to watch the pacqiao and marquez fight, find myself busy installing the brakeset, cut the fork too but need to file the top because of un even cut, installed the M3 Crankset which was previously on my slr01 and tried on the 808/404 combo. coming along hopefully by the end of next week the build is done. all I have to think now is which saddle to use, I am a big fan of Tune speedneedle which I have on the slr and 595 but since the mount on the s5 won't take any carbon rails, I'm thinking of getting a low profile saddle like maybe selle italia slr ti.

Don't know why but I'm starting to like this paint scheme somehow... 404 is too shallow for this frame IMO. 808 Zipps are looking fabulous with s5.
18' R5 coming soon...
