Cervelo R2 carbon road race bike size 56cm shimano 105 11 Speed

Cervelo R2 56cm shimano 105 11 Speed white Carbon Road Bike. Very good condition not getting used enough. Cost me 2100rrp with extras included race bottle cage and 50 rear light. Just had a 200 gold service and rides like new.

56cm white frame full carbon. Shimano 105 11 speed gearing. New supa caz 40 bartape. Cash or bank transfer on collection from North London. If bought for the asking price I can throw in a extra set of fulcrum 700c race wheels.

Generic pic I will take pics this weekend. Cervelo is a rather unique bike brand.

Youre not going to find a comfort bike, a townie, a tricked-out fixie or even an endurance-geometry bike in their line. Racing bikes are what they do, and thats all they do.

While the price of the top-of-the- line RCA is targeting the one-percenters, thats not at all the case with the new R2. Every one of the frames looks nearly identical to the other, since Cervelos engineering approach has been to throw all their resources at the nearly unattainable RCA, then trickle that technology down through the line. In fact, the only thing that is different between the R3 frameset and the R2 is a new fork that has an abundance of tire clearance. The R2 uses Cervelos Squoval 3 tube shapes first introduced on the RCA and designed to provide a slight aerodynamic advantage while still maintaining the two paramount traits of the R-serieslow weight and high stiffness.

Even though Cervelo doesnt make any claims regarding compliance numbers, features such as the top tubes small diameter where it meets the seat tube, and the micro seatstays, are all designed to decrease the amount of pounding and vibrations getting through to the rider. One thing Cervelo has done to ensure the R2 frame is completely upgradable to any shifting system or rim brake currently on the market is their Future Proof Cable Management system. An assortment of cable stops come with the bike that allow compatibility with mechanical, electronic and hydraulic systems. THE PARTS When the R2 first came through the office, it was our first chance to ride Shimanos redesigned 105group. It features 11 speeds and some of the shifting improvements made to Ultegra and Dura-Ace, such as a shorter shifter throw. Wheels are also from Shimano and use the 24mm-deep aluminum RS010 (24-spoke rear, 20-spokefront). Instead of using a complete 105 group, the R2 uses FSA Gossamer Pro brake calipers, along with Gossamer cranks. The remainder of the build uses an FSA SL-K seatpost and a 3T aluminum Ergonova handlebar with ARX stem.

Overall weight is a very impressive 17.2 pounds; in fact, the R2 is the lightest bike weve had through the office in its price range. But, truth be told, we consistently find the best bang for the buck well below that price, and the R2 is the perfect example of this. The Shimano 105 components deliver crisp, precise shifts, while the aluminum 3T handlebar and stem felt as solid and stiff in hand as any higher-priced carbon versions.

The frame was hardly an unknown factor since we reviewed the R3 less than a year ago, and, once again, were impressed with how efficient the power transfer feels in or out of the saddle. Even though its compliance isnt ever going to be confused with an endurance bike, its not exactly a rough ride, either, and does an especially good job in vibration damping. What was a little underwhelming was the stopping power of the dual-pivot FSA brakes. With Shimanos latest brake-caliper design, which now includes the 105, weve become accustomed to more powerful braking than what we experienced on this R2 build. Its ride performance is on par with bikes in a completely different price range, and since its such a high-end frame for the price, its worthy of some component upgrades down the road.

Other than our gripe of braking power, the Cervelo R2 is a great bike with nearly limitless capabilities. Impressive stuff, but then so is some of the other technology Cervlo has thrown at thisbike.

Itactually uses the same frame as the more expensive R3, which itself is 24% stiffer at the head tube than the previous generation R3 (it now has a tapered 1.375 to 1.125in steerer) it uses squared- off oval tubes (Cervlo calls them Squoval) to achieve a level of aerodynamics unheard of among most lightweight bikes. Cervlo reckons these tubes save 7w compared to the previous R3, even more against other bikes. Its clear on first inspection just how much thought has gone into the frame, like the squared-off seat tube, ultra-thin seat stays or asymmetric BBright bottom bracket, which allows the left-hand chainstay to be built up for added stiffness.
