beautiful bike

keep an eye on the bb shell area, as you probably know already these have been known to crack. It happened to a good friend of mine and she ended up getting a 2011 on warranty, so no worries either way.

I'd prefer to see those American Classics decal free but either way nice build.

according to toby stanton...

"I will tell you, as the only authorized Cervelo re-painter in the world, that I have seen these cosmetic cracks in all R3's. It is due to a stiffness differential between the AL BB shell and the carbon around it. I have seen all of them develop this but have never seen one fail."

that said, nicely put together bike, bet it rides even better than it looks...

Tiny Stays

The tiny stays are on these are awesome. How is that big ring in terms of flex? (Is it a 110BCD 52T?) Have you managed to weigh it? Nice photos and thanks for sharing

Good eyes, it is 110mm

Good eyes, it is 110mm 52T.

I haven't had any issues with flex in the ring. It's my first time on q-rings and there is definitely a knack to getting the front shifting smoothly, but nothing more than just lifting the pressure while shifting, just like normal, but a bit more important. Now shifting crisply and cleanly and when in gear the whole crankset feels as stiff as anything else I've ever used.

No idea on weight since I don't have any suitable scales. I've been meaning to look up the component weights on Weight Weenies though and add them up just as a rough idea for curiosity's sake.
