  • Re: S5 seatpost on S3, seat post angle?

    On the other hand, it totally makes sense. (A) The frame is 73 degrees, like many road frames. (B) The front hole is like a zero-offset post, second most common post on a road bike. (C) The rear hole is a step back. Okay, more than normal (40 mm), but 20 mm would have meant the holes would have overlapped. And plenty of folks have the saddle ...

    Hi  z06ontrack Technically the setback position is 40 mm (not 20 mm). This image should help you chose a post and position your saddle:

  • Re: Damon on the new S3

    Hi cunn1n9, Just had this thread pointed out to me by a colleague. I'm happy to hear you already ride an R5ca and are considering an aero Cervelo. Perhaps I can offer a couple of facts about wind tunnel testing that might help clear up a few questions. Bike alone. We used to test bikes without a rider, because no one had a test ...

  • Re: Anyone else get a poorly finished S5?

    Hi bjamis75, Carbon frames are indeed made in molds, but not normally all in one piece. Where the parts are bonded together we add a composite overwrap that is finished by hand. This hand finishing is the source of the waves. The overwrap covers the bond joint to stop paint cracking that would occur on the bond line without it. In the case of ...

    Hi Hutch, Thanks for bringing this thread to my attention, and especially thanks for including a link. Our forum is quite active and I appreciate not having to dig to find this thread! Hopefully I can be very clear about LocTite in BBright frames.  Tom already quoted my summary: "For PF30: If it's plastic, grease or nothing. If ...

  • Re: Question regarding R5 VWD - Damon Rinard, your the guy with the answers ;)

    Thanks everyone for your thoughtful comments. I'd like to apologise to you, williamsf1, for what might come across as an offensive tone to my words.  I see now from other helpful replies that you might have been thinking of the 2009 S3 and S2 models, where we did in actually give specific instructions on where to drill (in fact, many S2 ...

    Hi williamsf1, I can understand natiedean24's skepticism about a Cervelo rep posting, as we try to stay out of your forum as much as possible. But if I understand your comment correctly, you're right as well: you should have made a bet! ;-) [quote]Back to the R5VWD in question, I believe that the pictured R5VWD was drilled by Cervelo. ...

  • Re: S5 RD Hanger

    Correct Hutch, good sleuthing! Here is a summary: There are two hangers for the newer Cervelo road bikes, both R-series and S-series. The first generation positions the two screws vertical to each other. The metal goes about half way towards the axle.The second generation positions the two screws horizontal to each other. The metal goes all ...

    Hi williamsf1, Please don't drill any Cervelos.  Although it's true we provide some models with various holes drilled in them, we've checked that those holes don't weaken the frame and when they do we add reinforcement to pass our structural tests before starting production. The R5 on ebay (pictured in your post) was ...

  • Re: R5 CA Geometry

    Hi guys, When we designed the R5ca, we fixed the saddle in CAD exactly in the position created by a 73 degree seat tube with a traditional setback post. With the saddle fixed, we substituted a zero offset post (to save weight) and "connected the dots" to join the seat tube to the rest of the frame. The back surface had to miss the rear ...
