I just put mine on, had some white or clear ones, but it would only fit on the rear end, chainstay too big for the other one, so resorted to some huge black ones that I didn't think would fit in the hole... but they did, so hopefully it all stays together.

Doesn't quite meet the standard of Gaylord's RCa, but here's my new R3:

Although I hate the latest cervelo paint schemes since 2012, the silver R3 looks very nice...

I like the look of your R3. I've seen a few Silver R3's around and they look great.

Very nice Rich, the white cable housings work quite well. I didn't even notice them the first time I looked.

R5ca build just started.

I've got SRAM Red 10-speed on there for the moment. Having a bike with 10 speed an another with 11 could become a pain when I want to swap wheels, as i'll need to swap cassettes. But I'll see how it goes. Swapping cassettes ~ 5mins.

I still need a seat post, saddle and some new chain rings, as I'm not into the Rotor oval rings that came with the frame.

They're Royce hubs on tubular Gigantex rims, built by Nick Both of Wheels By Bosch. The hubs are fantastic, the rims nothing fancy - but they make for a very good, bombproof (and relatively cheap) package.

Thanks Rich they look really good and a nice way to get good wheels without paying the normal horrendous price :)
The bike looks fantastic, my god that seat looks uncomfortable though :o , can't be too bad if you can do 245 km on it though 8)

From the saddle height I can see u got long legs, but ditch those spacers! Jk [WINKING FACE]
Black zipp stickers or a nice set of ENVE 6.7s would look nice on that rig! P0rno!
