    Just got my R3-SL today, I like
    I decided to make a jump for the R3-SL after my dealer was having a 25% off the 2007 line, prior to the price increase. I brought the components with me. Not bad I have to say, its so light. Added the Fizik Carbon Ti saddle and Look Keo Carbon Ti Pedals. Think its in the mid 15's...

    Veloci...that is beautiful!
    What size it? How much does she weigh?
    How do you like those Easton wheels?

    it is a 56 cm, weights about 16 lbs. a little heavier than my R3. my R3 was 14.9. but, i do not mind the extra weight. i love the way this bikes handles and looks.

    the EC90 are fast ,stiff yet comfortable. i wish they were a little lighter. they are about 1375 or so. i have a set of Lighweights that i was going to use, but, i am going to sell them. too expensive to replace. it would be easier to replace a spoke on the EC90's than it would the lightweights.

    That's a beauty, trek_FL. I hope to own a P3C next year.

    thanks 7.62
    I sold my Trek5200 and a few other worldly possessions for it-- but no regrets. The aero thing really is something. Where I notice it most is in headwinds--where I used to really drop off on speed, I may only lose a few mph in a strong wind, incredible!

    SLC-SL Ride Quality
    HBPUNK... sorry for the delay... here goes:

    My first impression upon riding the SLC-SL was just how "fast" it felt. What I mean is how effortless it was to get up to speed and then keep it there. Before I knew it I was FLYING, and it seemed so easy to just simply keep turning the pedals over.

    My second impression was how "quick" the bike felt. Here I mean how nimble the bike felt cornering and the incredibly quick response when jumping out of the saddle and punching it in a sprint. The bike handles so well, sometimes it's actually a little scary just how fast you can descend.

    My third impression was "Holy Cow can this bike climb!" For a bike supposedly designed for it's aerodynamic abilities, I was speechless at how every ounce of energy I put into the bike while ascending seemed to go directly to the wheels. I consider myself more of a climber than anything else, and this bike has not disappointed. It's been a little over 5 months now and I'm still excited every time I mount up. It's a blast!!

    Now, to be honest... I will say it is not the most compliant frame out there. Not by a long shot. This is a stiff racing machine. Even so, I've had no problem logging long miles several days a week. I put a lot of time and thought into this frame, and I definitely think I made the right decision.

    SLC-SL (51)
    Full Record Gruppo 50/34 -- 11/23
    Fulcrum Racing Zero Wheelset
    Fizik Arione
    FSA WingPro Compact
    Deda Newton Stem
    Look Keo Carbon Pedals
    BTP carbon cages

    Or in other words "the carbon fiber construction and layup yielded a frame that was laterally stiff yet vertically compliant"-BikeSnobNYC.:D http://bikesnobnyc.blogspot.com/2007...-shootout.html

    Cervelo Dude, nice set up. btw, what is that above the brake caliper in the back? spare tire rolled up? light?
    Also, what made you decide to go with the Alpha Q fork? i am thinking about going that way after all the potential issues with the Wolf SL.

    There is an LED light above the rear brake caliper. I train early in the am this time of year and the light is a must.

    The fork is the Alpha GS-30, when I ordered the frame, the Wolf fork was not available....so I ordered the GS-30. I have had the frame finished for about a month, so far I really like it.

    why not the QS20? just curious. i am trying to find out whether or not the LBS screwed up on the placement of the metal insert. i was told the Wolf will be almost impossible to obtain, but, they have an Alpha Q QS20.

    CerveloDude,

    Do you train on your Zipps? I've wondered how well they hold up to everyday riding. I want to get a pair at least for racing, but not sure if I'd want the 303s or 404s. I currently live in Hawaii, so WIND is a constant companion.
