    Timeless??? They're plastic bikes made in China. Hardly "timeless". Cool, maybe. But that's all.

    Great is different from timeless.

    Timeless would be something like one of the bikes that Coppi rode, a Pinarello from the early days, or a newer handmade steel frame.

    Great would be something like a TIME (made entirely in-house), a Cyfac (hand-built in France), a Shamrock (hand-built in Indiana), or any non-mass-produced commodity bike.

    IMO, of course.

    Sure, it would be nice to have a Cyfac or a Time, beautiful bikes.
    But the Cervelo R3 brings super light weight and incredible comfort. Buying one used makes it available to the masses, unlike a Cyfac or Time (very hard to find used).

    Have you ever ridden an R3?
    That bike is magic.
    Cancellera, O'Grady, and Sastre have kicked some serious ass on it.
    I doubt they care where it was made.

    Yes, I've ridden an R3. I used to sell Cervelo. I gave up on them after we had 20+ broken ones hanging from the ceiling.

    Are these catastrophic failures from crashes? Over how many years?

    Cervelo is estimated to generate 30 million dollars a year in sales. That's a production of about 8572 bikes a year if we assume the average cost of 3500. If the failure rate is that high for your shop that year then surely the over one hundred world wide dealers would have close to the same rate which would be about a 23% failure rate. That would trigger a recall for sure. You should have called CSPC!

    But if it is only one frame a year for the hundred dealers (there are more, but just for the ease of examples) then there is only a failure of about 2% a year.

    But out of these two percent, how many frames were the cause of failure versus an external stimulus that precipitated the crash like a snapped stem/bar/fork broken spoke, slip on slick surface etc... that causes the carbon bike to get get loaded and break. It's hard to determine cause and effect, I mean there's no video evidence or bike CSI to determine how something broke unless it is a repeatable failure across the product line.

    Cervelos are safe and reliable bikes. Sure the've had cosmetic cracks on the BB but nothings perfect. Heck, my sunroof failed on my Tesla and that's superficial and doesn't say much to how safe and reliable it is. Just because things are expensive, doesn't mean they're perfect.

    All carbon manufacturers should introduce a test that simulates a peleton crash to see how they stand up to that kind of load.

    I personally think that Bjarne Riis, David Millar, Wiggo and Frankie Andreu should throw every frame at something as a failure measure.

    The way people talk about cervelo failures makes it seem like they're worse than Vitus. Which I'm going to build one up and do some cross racing with this season.

    It was 20 in the shop at one time. They had come in over the course of maybe a month. None were crashes. It would be silly of me to include those, wouldn't it? They were either crack-throughs on the seat stays or bottom bracket inserts that had broken loose. Two broken forks also, but they were under the Wolf fork recall.
    We were, at the time, one of the largest Cervelo dealers in the state.

    Ok...I've updated my group, so I thought I should update my pictures too

    2012 S2, Full Chorus, Campy Zonda wheels, RF Cadence bars, Fizik Alliante Gamma XM saddle. It has a wing, but also usually has clip-ons for my long distance solo work. Pardon the photo faux-pas of the chain position and bidon in the cage ;)

    Any idea what the beauty weighs? I'm thinking of picking one up, but I'm torn as to whether I should go all out and get an R5.

    Well it was 14lbs before this happened:



    Two weekends ago, with the bike on a Thule rack on the back of my Subie, I was rear-ended. Currently negotiating the labyrinth of the American insurance industry. Word to the uninitiated: Auto Club (car insurance) does NOT cover bikes or rack. Now chasing Safeco homeowners insurance to get the bike replaced.

    Very true.
    And, I was not injured, which is extremely fortunate given the force of the impact. I'm fairly convinced the rack and the bike took a lot of the inertia out of the collision.

    A cursory inspection leads me to believe that only the frame and the wheels may need replacing, the rest of the componentry may have survived unscathed. The bike is currently at my LBS for dis-assembly and inspection.

    Here's my S2 all dressed up for the Ride to Conquer Cancer next weekend. I replaced the bag with something that tucked in better, got the aeros on from my long distance training and such....now I just need a set of deep dish wheels on it to complete the TT/Tri look ;)

    Dressed the R3 up with aero bars and Hed Jet 60/90's. The Ritchey seatpost is remarkable; can get nearly as far forward as my BMC TM01. Forgot how great the R3 is. Man, so comfortable and climbs effortlessly. 16 pounds with the bars and wheels!r369.jpg
