  • Re: cervelo r5 rim vs disc

    I was able to take to take the disc out this weekend and get a couple of hours in. The rim does feel snappier, the disc feels more muted. On a really short and steep section, the bb felt very planted. The front end felt harsher and am going to decrease the air pressure of the tires and see if that makes a difference. New di2 (8070) shifters seem a ...

  • Re: cervelo r5 rim vs disc

    Why not get both? Frames on ebay for last years model are almost 40 percent off. If you had to go with one, guess it would depend on your riding needs. Building up a r5 disc and curious to see how it rides.

  • Re: Cervelo R5 ride impressions

    I actually like the black, white, and green. Happy with the color scheme.  Also, I hacked an etap blip shifter with a sprint shifter and placed it on the handlebar as separate climbing shifters. So far, it works on the stand. Will see how long it holds up. Wasn't a pretty job but soldered it, put some sealant and electrical tape ...

  • Re: Cervelo R5 ride impressions

     So I pulled the trigger on a new frameset, transferred parts over.  Will take pictures this weekend and try to post them (still haven't figured it out after all these years). Some interesting numbers, frameset weight with rear derauiller hanger, bottle cage bolts, and plastic parts for brakes and mechanical shifting on the bottom ...

  • Re: Cervelo R5 ride impressions

    On a couple of sites, it references Cervelo saying you need to add a few spacers to get to the old R5 height. Can anyone advise how many cms or mm above where the fork and top of the frame meet would get you back to the old height? Would like to use that as a reference point to slowly see how low one can go.  Thanks.

  • Re: Cervelo R5 ride impressions

     Thanks Harry. The reviews I've read mention the great handling and descending capabilities. People don't mention the climbing as much as  and was wondering how it was.  I repainted my 2014 r5 to matte black so I am used to a matte paint job.  On an online video, Cervelo mentions it's build ...

  • Cervelo R5 ride impressions

    Just wanted to get people's impressions if they've ridden the new R5? What are your experiences (other than what's common in reviews ie, stiffer at the bottom bracket, descends really well)?  How does it climb?  One of my favorite bikes was the cervelo r5 sl. It seemed like you always wanted to go on that bike.  Do ...

  • Re: Aero Question: Old S3 vs New R5

    Also, I am assuming that the new r3 puts you in a more aero position (should you slam the stem) when needed as it has a lower headtube than the old s3.  I think I recall your body makes up 2/3? of the drag? on the flat. If you keep your dimensions the same, then what Kookie wrote.  Also depends on if you do solo ride, group rides, how ...

  • Re: 2017 S3 Change to Rotor Q Chain Rings

    Had the 52/36 and the 50/34 Q rings, no issues. Currently ride the 52/36 qxl, even greater ovalization. Love them and won't go back to round or q rings. I so believe you feel the difference when you ride them, particularly when increasing speed. I would say try them, can always go back to round. I also have a set of ridea 50/34 with 15 percent ...

  • Re: R5 Replacement?

    Was told by NY lbs that cervelo plans to release a super bike in 2017. Will be interesting to see what they come up with. However, with Canyon set to come to North America, will it be worth it as the canyon ultimate frame is similar (imo) and thousands less than an r5. Stay tuned.
