2010 Cervélo RS

After a year riding my trusty KHS Urban Xtreme hybrid (which was the perfect bike for getting back into cycling), I decided it was time to upgrade to something a little more... sporty. So I spoke to Rob Garrison, owner of my LBS (local bike shop), Garrison's Cyclery, and he offered me a great deal. He had sitting in inventory in the shop's basement, still in its unopened box, a brand new 2010 Cervélo RS, in my size. This model is exactly the same frame geometry as the 2011 model, but with a nicer paint job. The Shimano Ultegra 6700 "groupset" (fancy cycling jargon for the mechanical and oily bits such as cranks, front and rear derailleurs, brakes etc) is better than that on the 2011 model. I needed a few upgrades as well: custom wheels (Shimano Ultegra hubs, Mavic CXP33 36 spoke rims, DT Swiss spokes and Continental Gatorskin tyres); Shimano Ultegra 11-28 rear cassette; 3T ARX LTD stem; and 3T Ergonova Team 46cm carbon fiber handlebars. Rob put the whole thing together with his usual extreme attention to detail and it weighs just 18.75 lbs (about 8.5kg) compared to the KHS which weighs in at 27 lbs (about 12.25kg).
