I did it 12 months ago. Details in this thread
I checked your Jan 31, 2023 post. But unable to see the pictures. Could you please repost the pictures? Interested on Avian cockpit as well. TIA
Pictures are showing Image maybe try a different browser.
Thanks for checking. I'll just do that.

Anyway, I messaged Panda Podium and they've added Cal5 and Aspero5 spacer options to the Avian listings. User @skinnybex has fitted one to his R5 so waiting for him to post some pics when he's back.
Good information. Thanks.

No, not sure why you would think that. Consider all these D-shaped/aero seatposts to be proprietary.

Yes, while they all might be D-shaped, it's always a slightly different D shape.

Get lighter thru axles instead of the ones w the levers. Should cut out some more weight.
Yup was planning on getting Blacklock thru axle https://www.fairwheelbikes.com/extralit ... quantity=1 but they are really expensive. Haven't had luck finding other ones that I can actually order online.

Just ordered saddle and a seatpost from Aliexpress so should save 227g $76 :D

Seat
Stock - 165g Ali
New: RYET 3D Printed 91g

seatpost
Stock - 256g
New: ELITA ONE Carbon Seat - 136g
Could you please send the Elita One seatpost link? Thanks

- Chainring: Garbaruk 42 oval
Hiya, Wonderfull bike!
EDIT Building a regular caledonia with a 9-36 / 42t Ekar group as we speak. CAN CONFIRM THE 9 TOOTH COG THIS JUST CLEARS THE CHAINSTAY. Would not try a 40.

Cheers, Lars

Cheers, Lars
FWIW, SRAM/Quarq cranks with the 44t chain ring and 10-36 cassette work fine.

Received and fitted an Avian Falcon II cockpit in 380x120. Weighs 295g so nearly 150g saving from my ST31/Prime aero bar combo. Really pleased with how well integrated this looks with the Cal5 specific 3d printed spacer supplied by Avian via Panda Podium.

Also a Hylix inline seatpost which seems decent quality and at 130g, 80g lighter than the stock Cervelo setback post.

I am thinking about starting a build from a Caledonia-5 frameset. But wondering what a 54cm would look like with my measurements? Huge spacer stack?

This is going to be a slow process, as I am comfortable on my current bike, but just starting to get a bit tired of the looks. The Giant has been a practical do-it-all bike, but would love to rekindle my joy for cycling with a new bike.

The current Giant is a size small, but with a huge head tube, But I am comfy on it.

Question: Does anyone have close to my measurements and pictures of their Caledonia? My saddle height is 73,5cm.

The 55cm is from fork to right under the stem, not the top of the head tube. It is especially that measurement that puzzles me. Online geometry comparison tools make it look like the head tube on the Caledonia despite its shorter height, would still be higher?

Check out the bikeinsights.com tool. The tool shows the fact that the Caledonia stack is 9 mm more than the stack of Defy (I used the 2023 model for comparison). Otherwise the bike geometries align quite well.

Just had a look at my 54 Cal5 pictured a couple of posts up and from the front wheel axle to the top of the 'high' bearing cover is 54.5cm so you'll just need one extra 5mm spacer to get your required stack (or 2x 10mm spacers if using the 'low' headset cover). My saddle height is 76cm
