Cervelo S2

Postby Cornish-J » Sun Nov 11, 2012 15:13 pm

Finished my new build - this will probably be my bike for a few years to come now. Really pleased with it although i think i need to change the stem for a slightly longer version.

wow.. this is awesome, Nicest Cervelo in the perfect colour scheme and components.

I really want an S2, and think I will buy one early next year to go with my R5.. having the perfect combination! 8)

is that a 56?

The best looking (least ugly?) Cervelo frame by miles! Wish I'd never sold mine really...

Nice pictures.

I love the fact that these 'race bikes' can be used for allsorts of riding.

Yes, they look a bit strange with the saddle bag, normal wheels etc, but you can ride them all day can't you :)

Why does everyone always mention "slammed stem" whats so great about having one?

In theory it's makes for a stiffer set-up than a spacer tower. Then there's the aesthetic. Then there's the lower position which is in theory more aerodynamic. All of which is useless if having the stem slammed puts you in a position you find uncomfortable.

In reality it's a non-issue. Just a 'macho' trend people have cottoned on to (a common thing in any forum). It's about as relevant as stating you have a large penis.

PS please don't get us to explain what a nice cockpit is... :wink:

What - you mean daft deep rim carbon wheels that make the bike look like it has tractor tyres on it? :wink:

(They look much better without such wheels......)
