Cervélo's R-series have always been known for their light
weight, and the latest R5 is no exception. The front end has been
lowered slightly too, for a more aggressive position, but this has
been complemented with a remarkably comfortable ride quality
(unusual in such a stiff bike).
This build is pretty much stock, and we love the choice of
components - everything is balanced, capable, reliable - and fast.
3.4 wheelset completes the package.
Of course being a Bespoke bike it has been perfectly tailored to
fit it's new owner, all the contact points dialled in precisely so
bike and rider can perform at their best.
