It was conceived on the Thursday night rides - routes that often play fast and loose with ‘road ride.’ As they tried to stuff bigger tires into the R5s and streamline Aspéros, a new kind of bike was born.
When Cervélo design a bike, they start with their library of tube shapes. These shapes are tubes they’ve used on other models that are known to have various qualities - aerodynamic, stiff, ultralight, and so on - and these qualities help get to the refinement stage on a bike more quickly. In the case of Caledonia, they wanted durability, lightweight and aero dynamics to be in balance and selected a package that achieved the performance demands of this kind of race bike.
Caledonia uses a standard round bar, stem, and seat post, giving riders the option to build their ultimate ride without compromise. Integrated accessory mounts and hidden fender mounts keep the bike’s refined lines so you can ride with lights and computers in a downpour and still look fast. Because we all know if it looks fast, it probably is.
Rather than designing multiple versions of the bike with various fit profiles (R5, R-Series, etc.) like Cervélo have done in the past, they designed a system that enables a broad range of fits on a single bike while maintaining the aesthetic and functional cleanliness demanded. Modern road riders are looking for bikes to handle long-distance, high pace, no limits, and offer maximum fun. By placing lower modulus carbon in key areas to mitigate the brittleness of high modulus carbon - the Caledonia delivers performance, comfort, and speed. Oh, and you can fit a 34mm tire in there. Or 31mm with mudguards.
Cervelo's bolt-on front derailleur mount is made from high-strength aluminum alloy and attaches to the frame with two countersunk screws. This allows for easy replacement in the event of damage but also enables you to adapt to new standards as they become available or remove the front derailleur mount completely if you choose a 1x system.
Integrated mounts enable the use of fenders, lights, and computers without compromising the aerodynamics or structure of your bike. The built-in mount systems provide a simple and clean-looking solution.
There are many contributing factors when it comes to picking the right size of bike. Whilst height provides perhaps the best indication of bike size it's not uncommon to size up, or size down depending rider flexibility, body shape, riding style and desired body position. Here at Billy Bilsland Cycles we understand the importance of bicycle fit, sizing and comfort in order to not only maximise enjoyment, but help significantly enhance performance and accomplish goals. Check the recommended height ranges below for a rough guideline, and if you have any queries don't hesitate to get in touch. For more information on our in depth bicycling fitting service click here.

If you require expedited/next day shipping, give us a call on 0141 552 0841 or drop us an email on email@example.com and we'll do our best to accommodate.
Every bike we sell is fully assembled and tested for safety by our trained mechanics. We then partly disassemble the bike and carefully re-pack to prepare for shipping.
Depending on the model, upon receipt you may be required to straighten and tighten the handlebars, reattach front wheel and attach the pedals. Please ensure that the pedals are greased and fitted correctly - the pedals will be marked L and R and have to be fitted to the left and right cranks respectively. Pedal do not come with every bike and need to be bough separately, especially on more high-end models. Please check when you are ordering.
There is a guide in the box telling you which tools you will need and the steps to follow. This will require some degree of mechanical skill to put together and can need some minor adjustments. The less confident you are in this field the more we'd recommend having it checked over by a professional mechanic.
We offer a standard 48Hr Service for courier shipping via Royal Mail for accessories, and APC Next Day for bike deliveries.
