    OMG New R3 "Colorway" = UGG-LEEE!

    Is Cervelo so desperate to sell R5s or the S series that they had to make the new R3 paint scheme THAT ugly? Never was a big fan of the RED toptube of the new R5, but the white of the R3 is certainly a lot worse. Honestly, if I was in the market, I think I'd buy an R2 frame and build it with 6800 instead of buying that butt-ugly R3. Yuck!

    I kind of like it... I like the white more than the red.

    I've never really liked any of the paint jobs Cervelo has done.

    I wonder what color the new R7 will be? Purple maybe?

    I like it too, but to each their own. That's why we don't all drive around on the same bike.

    OK, to be fair, I recently saw one in-person and actually it looks pretty nice. Don't know why the difference between between the web vs in-person appearance, but though I still prefer the 2014 paint job, I would buy/own black/white 2015 afterall.

    Looks much better in person. So much so, I just purchased one. LBS should have it ready this afternoon. Stripping my current bike down, and building up the R3. Can't wait. Will post pics.

    Yes, fully agree...I was looking for another bike and picked up the R3...I wasn't a fan of the white top tube but it's grown on me and I love the matte black other parts....Also, it was on sale and I couldn't pass up on it...

    There's always a thin coat of paint to change top tube looks.
