Not sure about that R3, but that R5 looks the bomb

Err, well, the R5ca looks good!

Apart from the changes in the colours, has anything else changed?

Got myself an S3 this year and think it's great, very happy with it. Quite fancied getting an R3 to replace a Spesh Tarmac SL1, but think I'll be looking for a 2012 model in the sales at the end of the year.

The thing Ive always thought Cervelo had right was to put the Frame name very very small on a lot of the frames, and now they go for the opposite aaaaand the font clashes with the Cervelo Logo, let alone the colour scheme's being dire.

Oh dear. Hope mine doesn't break under warranty too, cos if I was about to buy new there is no way on earth Id buy any of them, the R5CA is the only one that remains fine.

Christ knows what they are thinking.

Better start saving for the California!

A just vomed in my own mouth.

I really wonder from how high up the chain the directive came from to go for this design? It's not like someone will be deciding b/w a Pinarello, Derosa, Cannondale and Cervelo and it's the paint-job that seals it. In fact, I bet it's the other way round, sheit paint jobs strike bikes OFF people's short lists...

I guess you mean 3 of those aren't in the same league as the Cervelo :?:
