Function Meets Nerdery
- I've put it through the wringer
- True to size
A wise sage once bestowed upon me advice that can be applied or up-stringed to many scenarios as one stumbles through life while breaking all the rules that were meant to be bent: "Your life holds for you endless possibilities...are you going to be a bike nerd or a bike dork?" I eventually realized this was his round about way of asking me to adjust the straps on my helmet so they did not obstruct my peripheral vision, and while I was at it, maybe even take a day or two off between hard rides. I eventually heeded his advice, but only after he conveyed his requests in a more direct and less cryptic manner. This allowed me to see more clearly while also giving me a chance to come down from the perpetual high that is inevitable with being young, having all my cartilage, and having a v02 max that would make a gazelle weep. I was young, dumb, and fast. More importantly, I lived my life as such. In a sea of radically and theatrically shaped down tubes, head tubes, and fork blades that aim to pass air more efficiently across the machine between your legs, little is it known to many that said tubes are also aesthetically designed to blow smoke up your....well you know. With this in mind, it is all too easy to get caught in the undertow of bike dorkery when your helmet straps give you the kind of wind tunnel vision with the high hopes of being more aero than that dork you work with whose cubicle's position in the office lends itself to his all too frequent visits where he too, reminisces all too often on his younger faster days. After all, the path down to the ocean is a slippery one and a sure foot is needed. The Cervelo C5 is the antidote to faltering while still retaining the price tag that got you into this two wheeled conundrum in the first place; the quest for the object that screams, "respect me, I'm wealthy", or, I use to be fast... Rest assured the C5 has the kind of classic and clean lines that offer a timeless look that keep the nerdery feels at optimum levels while having a ride quality such, that it lends its' steward all the impulsive behaviors that come from riding to a point of recklessness giving you that same old love and feeling you were able to obtain in your youth on much lesser bikes.
