Here is my Cervelo R5This is quite the best road bike I’ve ever owned. Originally built from the frame up (£3500), at Condor Cycles, London. Perched on top of a pair of Carbon Zipp 303 Firecrest wheels (£1600). At the time I didn’t want electronic shifting so it has a regular Dura Ace set up. Fizik carbon saddle Deda bars, Continental tyres, carbon seat post and levers. Carbon Look Keo pedals. Black bar tape is pristine.It also has the Rotor Q-Ring chainrings Froome was using when he started winning Le Tour. (Increase power generation, reduce fatigue and help prevent injury by varying the effective size of the chainring throughout the pedal stroke).They suited my style of riding – so I’d say they worked!If you’re looking at this listing, then you’ve probably already done your research:Cervelo says: The ultra-lightweight carbon fibre layup used in the frame and fork is reinforced in key areas to boost the bike’s stiffness, promoting explosive acceleration and superb climbing capabilities.Bike radar said: Lightweight carbon fiber construction and Dura Ace 11-Speed groupset make the R5 Dura Ace a perfect choice for the rider who likes to go long and likes to go up. Sigma Sport: Optimized Tapered Head Tube Larger lower head tube dimensions offer an improvement in stiffness and handling. However, it is not as simple as ‘bigger is always better’. Ultra Thin Seat Stays Shapes and materials can add stiffness where it counts. They can also be designed to take stiffness away from where you don’t want it.The bike has never been crashed, and always maintained to the highest degree by me.So… a bike that probably cost somewhere in the region of £7000+ to build. Really well looked after. It looks like a new bike. It’ll ride like a new bike. Ideal for club rides or road racing. Comes with two wheel bags (they’re Mavic – but they’re included).Grab yourself a bargain. Be the envy of the peloton. Thanks for looking.Would prefer cash on collection or a BACS payment.This really needs to be collected rather than couriered – but am happy to meet part way depending on distance.UK only.
