Great Bike for Triathlon - Cervelo P3

I ordered this bike for myself, the Cervelo P3, from Competitive Cyclist. We just started triathlon training about a year ago and had only used road bikes before this purchase. From what I understand the Cervelo is widely popular in triathlon so I figured for a first bike we couldn't go wrong. I was a little hesitant to order after reading that other review where they guy basically flamed Competitive Cyclist. I can' t speak for his experience, but mine was nothing like that. It was probably the best experience ordering anything online that I've had so far. I wasn't sure how long it would take to arrive, but I figured at the sale price it was no big deal if it took a few weeks. Anyways I was shocked when I received it the same week I ordered. I even got a friendly email from Jonathan Ertz following up with me after my order, which was great customer service. It's nice to know companies still contact their customers personally instead of canned automated emails if you have any questions. It was also nice because he let me know when it was being worked on, shipping, etc. The bike comes in a large box, not too big, but large enough. Everything is attached to thick cardboard inside. It took about an hour to assemble everything. Overall it seemed well organized as a bike shipment. I usually order my biking gear and accessories from Completive Cyclist and have never had a problem, so it makes sense that a bike purchase would go so smoothly. I will probably look to order other bikes from them again in the future if I see anything that catches my eye. I also ordered a P2 for my wife which is very similar. There are some differences that I should highlight though in case you are deciding between the two bikes. The first is that the seat is a little higher end. Obviously this has the Ultegra groupset, which is lighter too. The wheels the P3 comes with are actually not too bad. They are pretty light, almost as light as my Zipp wheels. I was most surprised by this. They are also tubeless ready if you want to run tubeless so that is a nice plus! The front bars are also carbon and more narrow, they are also more aerodynamic. I am 5'10'' 160 lbs and the 54 fits perfectly. I will probably slam the stem down to get even more aero as I get more comfortable, but overall the feel of the power through my legs to the pedals is very nice and smooth. I feel well connected on this bike, if that makes sense. In the photo you will see that I put on my own Zipp wheels, which are older. I also have my Garmin pedals on there in the picture. I weighed this bike as seen in the picture and it was 18.6 lbs. The weight with the wheels it comes with would probably be pretty close to that as well. Also the Garmin pedals I have are older and are somewhat heavy.

Thanks for your review! I’m the same height and am deciding between a 54 and 56. Have you noticed any fit issues since you made your post?

Does this bike come with the drive chain assembled? Or would I need to insta the derailleurs, crank, etc?

Don’t buy from Competitive Cyclist
- I returned this product before using it
I only wish I had done more due diligence and read the comments on Facebook and elsewhere before I made a purchase with competitive cyclist. But I trusted the reviews on this bike. Please don’t make the same blunder that I very regrettably made. I purchased a bike on May 21st and a month later I’m not sure when I will see my purchase. I bought the bike in spite of the insane price of shipping (don’t be duped by the free shipping artifice) with the understanding it would be two weeks. I received an email alerting me they are backed up and it would now be 21-24 days before the bike is shipped. I responded to explain I had travel plans to hopefully leave the country with bike in hand and needed it at the time originally promised. I asked if there was anything I could do to expedite the process time. In response, I was told that not only could I not get it at the originally promised time at purchase, but now they were increasing the wait time again to over a month. As a business owner, I am appalled by the customer service of this company, and only hope you don’t make the same error that I made purchasing from competitive cyclist. Any money I might have saved by using CC is more than made up in hidden fees and the opportunity cost in dealing with incompetent customer service.

I purchased two bikes and multiple accessories from CC and experienced nothing less then a positive one! Ordering a bicycle in April, May or June in 2020 was challenging for everyone.
