    Road bars on a Cervelo P2?

    I've got a carbon time trial bike, a 2011 Cervelo P2 Ultegra...Adamo Time Trial saddle and Profile Design Ozero/T4+ bars.
    I want a carbon road bike but don't want to sell the Cervelo and possibly lose money. I was thinking about switching out the saddle and bars to a road setup.
    Any thoughts?

    The frame's geomtery is not set up for road. Chances are it won't fit well.

    A friend tried to do that with his P3.

    The dealer basically told him they won't do it, Even with drop bars, the bike won't be comfortable, and it's too costly with the shifters anyway.

    Instead, he offered to sell him a carbon frame, Bianchi I think, built it using a lot of parts from the P3 Dura Ace bike, and figured that he could sell the frame and the new bike would be cheaper then the cost to convert the P3 to an uncomfortable bike to ride

    I used to ride a P3 Carbon with drop bars. Aggressive position, but no problems if that is what you are after. Definitely not a good gravel road bike!

    Gerry Hull actually could provide some useful info on this...

    Last I knew he had a P2 or P3 set up for road, with an Adamo saddle. It also had a 1x10 setup with a 55t front ring and an 11-32 cassette, but you don't need to do that...

    Gerry speaking. New 2018 version done. Luv it. Especially since I don't have to make as many parts. And previous gen P3 is legal for mass start events. I have email from official saying "you ok" which I cherish Too bad I don't know how to do photo. It's pretty. My friends here call it "the nosebleed bike". If I had photo you'd understand. I find it quite comfy though.

    'brifter' is a lame word.

    Got a bunch of drop? I knew a bunch of guys...well, at least a few...that used the P3 Track frame for everything they did. Mass start w/ drop bars, pursuit w/ aero bars, all good.
    I work for some bike racers
    I've got some bikes, some guns,
    and a bunch of skateboards
