When we last looked at the Cervelo P5, we were detailing the ins and outs of the frameset. And at that time, we promised to show you the full build of the bike when it was done. Sadly, this isn't a ride review - the P5 shown here is a 58cm, and much too large for me to ride. So for the purposes of this article, you're looking at a display bike. And what a beautiful display it is. Every part of this bike was chosen for a specific reason, to make a fininshed product that is very light (just 15.7 pounds complete), undeniably aerodynamic, and as user-friendly as any bike on the market.
And there's the Omega rear brake, hiding behind the crankset. It mounts up, no problem. I ran full housing to the brake rather than split it at the top tube.
