Bike Shipping and Assembly
Your bike is shipped to you assembled with everything including gears, brakes and headset tuned.
All you need to do is:
1 - insert the front wheel
2 - mount the bars on the stem
3 - install the seatpost
The R5 will fuel your passion, whether you find glory in winning races or beating your friends to the top of the hill. The R5 makes no compromises as a race machine first and foremost: like you, it thrives on punishment.
Confidence is Everything
A high performance bike you can trust. Stiffness and geometry work together for pedaling efficiency and stable handling. Wider tires and frame compliance create a smoother ride which reduces rider fatigue. And the R5's Pro Fit has a lower front end for better aero performance.
Cervélo values user-friendly and intuitive adjustments. The thoughtful details of the R5 will delight you: chain-stay protector, plenty of tire clearance (for tires up to 30mm measured width), and an integrated computer mounting for uncluttered handlebars.
We made the R5 stiffer at key points in the bike while maintaining its featherweight status. The R5's careful balancing of stiffness and weight results in a bike that accelerates quickly but is stable and predictable at speed.
