Because of the bad finish i decided to let the frame be painted and finished again. This is the result.
The weight of the complete bike as pictured is 6,8 kg so that's not bad at all for an aero roadbike.
that's not a real cervelo s5! the top-rear part of the seat tube is way too long (among other things). what you got there, pardner, is a miracle-bikes MT-MC055! I know, because i'm in the process of buying one myself! (an MT-MC055, that is; not an S5)
this is your bike:
this is your bike on drugs:
but i gotta hand it to you: you did manage to sucker the other posters who bought your story and replied to you as if it was a real cervelo
how does that old saying go? "you can fool some of the people, some of the time. but you can't fool all of the people all of the time..."
c'mon! would it kill you to add at least a _little_ color? you know what i mean? when will people wake up to the fact that all-black frame "designs" suck bosons?
And even if it's a fake, perhaps the owner doesn't know? It's pretty easy to accuse someone of duplicity.

Do you know what, Franklin? I have to agree with you there, son. I've never seen a seat post on an S5, as long as the one in your photo. But then again, who's to say that the frame in your photo didn't come from the same shop on aliexpress.com as the OP's frame?
After , I posted I did examine both a lot closer. And, I thought almost exactly what you said. The frame in the OP's photo does not have 100% the same lines, shapes and angles of the MT-MC055. That said, neither does it have 100% the same lines, shapes and angles of the the S5 photo that i ul'd.
So, marcob, my apologies if I jumped the gun there, bud But I still think the paint "scheme" sucks bosons though
That's not to knock the Chinese frames- they're great for what they are. I have one and just ordered another one. But the Cervelo logo stays on my Cervelo.
