    Wanted – R5 bars & seatpost

    Longest of long shots but has anyone in the UK got an R5 on order (or know anyone that has) and wants to swap out their stock handlebars or seatpost? I’ve just bought a 54cm and, without unboxing it, know ideally I’d like to swap the 25mm set back seatpost for a 0mm inline one and the 42cm (c-c) handlebars for 40cm. They’re extortionate to buy so I’ll just live with them if I can’t swap but you never know there might be someone out there wishing theirs came with slightly bigger parts! Many thanks

    If you bought it from a dealer, they should work with you to get a 0 degree seatpost.

    Not sure what you mean. The bike was bought from an authorised dealer but, as it was on sale, they would not swap out components for free. They're more than happy to sell me all the bits obviously (inline seatpost £155, stem £220, bars £267)! Not much of a market to sell on the bits I'd take off so it would be a huge net cost which was the point of my post on here.

    What size frame did you get? I know frames 51 and smaller get the 0 Degree Offset post and 54 and above get the Offset post.

    54cm which is the issue. It's the right frame for me.
