    2016 Cervelo R3 Disc



    EB15: All-new Cervelo R3 Disc prepares for the races under MTN Qubeka, more

    Did he say 135mm rear hub?

    Are they stupid? Is the new standard not 142mm with 12mm thru axle?
    Everyone else is building 142mm yet they chose a custom dished crank and 135mm? This bike can't run Shimano cranks?

    And is that two different length chainstays? Tire clearance is also tight?
    You can't fit 28mm tires on this? Are you serious?

    They need better engineers, this is a disaster.

    edit: don't forget to read the comments in the bike rumor article.

    In summary: "their philosophy about the dropout is that it’s too hard to do it the right way, so they’ll give you a bodge job solution, at Cervelo prices."

    I sure hope this isn't becoming a trend; first Spesh not willing to "compromise" their Tarmac (requires custom wheel w/ inboard cassette), and now Cervelo requiring a hacked chainset...

    I'm in the market for a carbon-framed, Di2 disc bike that adheres to the 12x142 TA standard. The only manufacturers that I see coming close in their 2016 models are Canyon and Scott.

    It's still early days yet, but other manufacturers seem to be hanging onto their QR product or playing the waiting game. I've looked at Trek (iirc, Domane = 15mm TA), Cannondale, Pinarello, Orbea, BMC, Specialized, De Rosa, Bianchi and maybe a few others and have yet to find the spec I want.

    After listening to the pitch, I'll simply say "nope".

    Looks like the r3 disc might not happen. Major problems with the crank. There was a huge manufacturing error. They should of adopted to the standard.

    So its nearly halfway through its diet as they are definitely no lightweight bike straight off the shelf.

    So far:

    FSA Crank - Sram Red
    FSA SLK seatpost - 3T Team Stylus
    FSA SLK stem - 100mm 3T Team stealth (110mm 3T team in pic)
    FSA Handlebars - 3T Erganova team stealth
    FSA PF30 BB - Kogel ceramic
    Fizik saddle - Spech Power Pro
    Ultegra 11-25 cass - Dura-ace 11-28
    Conti tyres and tubes - Schwalbe One Pro tubeless with 25ml stans.

    In the next week when the rims arrive, as I just got the tracking #.

    Hed Ardennes GP+ wheelset - Nextie 38mm carbon tubeless, Tune King/Kong 100x12 142x12 hubs and Sapim CX Ray spokes.
    Shimano 140mm freeza centrelock rotors - Sram 6 bolt Centreline 140's

    Down from ~8kg (with pedals, cages, garmin mount ect) to ~7.5kg, the wheelset and rotors will drop about 400g off it and bring it to about ~7.1kg

    Only thing left to swap now is the groupset...

    How's the shifting with the SRAM cranks? Is shifting noticeably "sub-optimal"? Or, is it fine as long as you avoid x-chaining?
