Caledonia doesn’t fit in a box nicely, and Cervelo like it that way.
It was conceived on their 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 Asperos, a new kind of bike was born.
When Cervelo 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, etc.—and they 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 they've 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 we demand. 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 hi-mod fiber—the Caledonia delivers performance, comfort, and speed. Oh, and you can fit a 34mm tire in there. Or 31mm with fenders.
All of our bikes are sent on a next day service. When your order ships, you will be sent a tracking link by email.
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, re-attach 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. Not every bike comes with pedals, please check when you are placing your order.
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.
If you have seen a bike online that's cheaper than us, send us a link and we'll see if we can match it.
Please note: Manufacturers can sometimes change the specification of the products from time to time.
