Dear All

I have the following for sale:

**2014/2015 61cm Cervelo R3 Carbon bike, Shimano 105 groupset, Shimano R500 Wheelset**

This would be ideal for the occasional commute, sunday long planned rides, audax and sportives - I find the R3 upright but at the same time quite racey and versatile. For me, the R3 is an absolute blast and a well made bike worthy of all the many plaudits it receives. The frame is rock solid under powerful pedal strokes and the back end copes well over broken surfaces; there’s an almost intuitive feel and handling about it.

Here is the Spec:

Frame: 61cm, Cervelo Frame with Squoval Carbon Tube Shapes
Fork: Cervelo Carbon FK30- tapered 1 3/8th Forks
Headset: FSA IS-3

Crankset: FSA Gossamer 10/11 Speed (50/34)
Bottom Bracket: FSA BBright
Front Derailleur: Shimano 105 5700 10 Speed
Rear Derailleur: Shimano 105 5700 10 Speed
Brake Calipers: Shimano 105 5700 brake calipers
Seatpost: 3T Dorico Ltd Carbon (27.2mm) (UPGRADE +£115.00)
Cassette: Shimano 105 5700 10 Speed (11-28)
Chain: SRAM PC-1071
Wheelset: Shimano R500 Wheelset
Handlebars: Deda RHM 02 (44cm)
Stem: Deda Elementi Super zero 2, 100mm
Saddle: Generic Black saddle (not the one pictured)
Tyres: (F) Michelin Pro 4 Service Corse, 23mm, (R) Continental GP4000 S, 23mm (UPGRADE +£60.00)

Here is a review from bikeradar which gave it a 4 out of 5 star review:

It's got mostly Shimano 105 5700 (10 spd) including FSA Gossamer Cranks. Perfectly capable Shimano R500 training wheelset. It is shod with the best tyres around (Conti Grand Prix 4000 and Michelin Pro 4). Deda and 3T carbon finishing kit which includes the very light stem and handlebars.

Weighs around 7.9ish kg using bathroom scales! You could probably get this easily lower to UCI weight limit of 6.8kg with a lighter wheelset.

The bike has probably seen <1000 miles as its one of the many bikes I have. Its still tight and fresh as its had a recent service (NEW outer and inner cables, NEW handlebar tape). Very good condition with the most minor of scuffs. Gear set shifts fine and tyres roll well and true.

I am based in London for viewings (Morden SM4), I would prefer pickup but can alternatively post anywhere in the UK.

This was purchased for £2,200+ as a full bike, willing to let go for a very reasonable £800 (pickup), £838 (posted).
