    The Commercials Have TAINTED my Perception of Cervelo

    They're still great bikes, but after seeing the creators on the commercials, I feel like I just met a chubby mole covered phone secks operator determined to slaughter a fantasy.
    I Like B-I-K-E-S.

    I don't remember his name, but the guy doing the narration sounds eerily like Stephen Hawking's computer...

    The first time I heard it, I had my back to the TV and turned around thinking 'Why is Stephen Hawking selling Cervelos"...
    When a cyclist in your area is injured or killed by a motorist, make an extra effort the next day to go for a ride. It doesn't have to be an organized ride, or even a long ride. Hell, ride a 15 minute loop around your neighborhood if you want.

    Just be seen riding your bike.

    Do it to make people aware we're out there. Do it to honor a fellow traveler. Do it because you're lucky enough to still be able to.

    Dude--they're engineers...say no more.

    Funny I had the opposite reaction. I missed a chance to buy a used one, and now I am sure I need an S2

    That bike was super cool. The whole tri-vibe has kind of ruined the brand for me.
