    Cervelo R5 Disc - R.A.T

    Hi,

    I have new Cervelo R5 disc version. Bike is excelent but R.A.T quick release is quite... inelegant... simple to big, anti-aero.. I don't like it.
    Is any possible to replace it with other thrue axle system? Has anyone done this or know what to do?

    Thank you
    Bartek

    You can replace the both the front/rear thru axles with the ones on the C-series. Your LBS can order the parts, which will include the thru axles and the bits that they screw into. I don't mind the RAT system, but I replaced them on my R5 because of direct-drive trainer compatibility issues...

    Hope this helps.
