    What kinda of bike is this

    I recently pick up a Cervélo bike at a local bike shop. I was told it's an 2012 r5. I have not been able to find any photos of my bike think I was lied to. I think is an rs but I don't know what year. No serial number on the bike. Can anyone https://flic.kr/p/LpPoX2

     By the look of the seat stays with the slight curve I would say that it is a RS. This was the more entry model when Cervelo had the R3 and R3SL. Longer head tube and the frame was a little bit heaver. A lovely riding bike.

    I like the bike but don't like being misled I traded a qr cdo1 that was a few years old that I hated so I pick up a road bike until I get another tri bike

    ... no one likes to be misled :) i would have asked around first prior to closing the deal rather than after. did you check with the lbs with regards to the missing serial number? as well, it will be difficult to find the same bike online as i do not think (am not 100% sure though) cervelo came up with that color scheme.

    I was told it was an r5 bad thing is it's a guy I trusted. I do like the bike. Think I may be a convert to team Cervélo.

    I believe the RS line ended in 2011. And it was a white bike with red and black accents. I wanted the RS back then but, none was in stock in my size and ended up with a 2012 R3.

    That RS has a very nice custom paint sheme. Since the frame number is just a sticker on the bottom bracket it's maybe removed for that. Unfortunately warranty is lost, what it is always for a second holder.

    If legit, it will have a serial number.

    The Rival RS in white with red colorway was a 2011 and 2012 model.
