Fantastic price on this 15-pound 2011 Cervelo R5 built with Ultegra 6770 Di2, custom build wheels and carbon bar. This bike was recently built and Demo'd for 50-100 miles but is in basically brand new condition.
This bike is built with brand new Ultegra Di2 electronic shifting for lightning fast shifts with just a very light press of the shifter buttons. The hand built wheels are built just like the frameset - light yet strong. They feature 28-hole DT 240S hubs laced to a DT RR415 rim in the front and a DT RR465 rim in the rear. Spokes are the ultra premium DT black Aerolites with DT black Prolock nipples.
The R5 pulls out all the stops to make it one of the premier strength to weight ratio framesets ever built. The R5 takes the ground breaking technology of the R3 one step further in terms of lower weight and increased bottom bracket stiffness. Cervelo's R series bikes attract a lot of attention for their low weight but what really sells them is a ride quality that is both very responsive and comfortable.
Cervelo employs numerous technologies to give the R5 an unmatched strength to weight ratio with a fantastic ride quality. Squoval tube shapes resist twisting and provide a stiffness and stress dissipation. Smartwall tubes have extra material only where it is needed and thicknesses are matched to each frame size. BBright bottom brackets allow the use of a wider frame shell for a larger downtube/seat stay junction as well as 30mm spindled cranks to maximize stiffness in both of the key areas. A 1 1/8"- 1 3/8" steerer tube for the perfect balance of stiffness and headtube size. Cervelo's pioneered R series ultra thin seatstays reduce weight and give the R5 an amazing ride thanks to vertical compliant and vibration absorption.
