OMG I can't contain the excitement - it's sitting on a scale and you're not telling us!

North or south of 900 grams?

It's been a busy week, but she's booked in for a build this coming Wednesday :mrgreen: . I was tempted to tackle it but decided for Warranty issues and getting her set up perfectly I would take it to a local authorised Cervelo dealer.

The weight of the frame in that photo is a smidgen under 770g :)

Hi, can I ask. The fork expanding bolt that comes wight he frame, does yours work ok? What I mean by that is you might want to check that it actually tightens to the fork. I have bought the same frame and just built mine and my local shop have scrapped my fork expanding bolt because its useless. When it was fitted there was still play in the fork. Something for you to consider because mine is all built now and finished apart from this 1 thing. Ordered a new 1 and now waiting or delivery. Looking fwd to seeing the pics.

Just got her back from the shop :D

6.2kg / 13.6lb fully built w/ pedals :o

Booked in for a bike fit next week so wanted a bit left on the stem until then to make sure it's all set up properly. Feels insanely light can't wait to take her out. I'll update the OP when I get it outside and take some better photos.

Very nice! That's just a smidge lighter than my Supersix Evo. Is it a 54cm? Will be interested to see what you make of the R5 as I considered one before going with the Cannondale.

An incredibly beautiful bike you have there. Enjoy!

Thanks for the comments, looking forward to a proper fit now then taking her out for a spin, fingers crossed for some good weather soon.

It is indeed a 54. I considered a Cannondale before going for the R5 :P

Actual weight for complete build w/ pedals done whilst I was collecting her in the shop :)

Very nice! Considering that's roughly the same build iv'e got on my SuperSix I dont understand how you got it so light! My 63cm SuperSix Evo is 14.8lbs with the same finishing kit as you, Mavic Ksyrium SL wheels, and Dura-Ace 7900 w/ Hollowgram crank.

Had a quick look at your build (very nice and good choice on finishing kit :P) the main differences appear to be:
Ksyrium SL's + 120g,
Saddle + 100g
7900 on paper is + 71g,
Frame? 54 vs 63cm
