Didn't see many (if any) Cervelo's so here is my 6kg R3-SL, could easily go sub 6 k.g but that would cost at least 2-3k more in new parts. This my daily, training and race bike :)

I really want that. Is it for sale or where does one obtain such an awesome machine ?

There was a Tafe course here in Brisbane which offered the chance to build a PF from scratch & keep it when the project/ course was complete. I've also heard of a local guy who'll build one for about $5G, but I'd prefer old school.

haha, my granddad had one in his garage when he was moving from Brissy to Sydney.. He was clearing it out and goes 'do you know anyone who'd want one of these?' first i was like :o then i was like :D I rode it in to my school formal in proper pants and top hat. ferrari's and mercedes had nuffin on my Penny. Just overpriced egoist machines, sold through strategic corporate advertising!

I eventually sold it to a mate who moved to Thailand for $650. I dont know any other ones around unfortunately..
