3 5

I wasn't overly impressed but it did get the job done. The issue I had is that the side without the wheels didn't hold it's shape very well and sort of flopped over to one side. This made rolling it with my left hand a nightmare. It kept the bike protected though and made it to Europe and back.

All-Round perfection
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Cervelo for years has been known for their aerodynamics and going fast. The R-Series takes things to the next level with its all-round ability. While 6K is no small chunk of change, what you get with the R3 rivals that of any top end offering. Sure you can find a stiffer or lighter bike but you'll be hard pressed to find a bike that gives you a measurable advantage over the R3 for under 10K. Or even over 10K for that matter.
Riding out here in Salt Lake, I had the opportunity to test this bike out on all sorts of terrain, and I must say, I was impressed every time. Climbing steep canyons while never easy for me, the R3 handled great both in and out of the saddle. The 8070 drivetrain shifts under load without issue. Descending the Cottonwoods is always exciting and you can do it with confidence on board the R3. The Hydraulic disc brakes allow you to scrub speed as needed as well as enter corners without fear. Strong crosswinds can be terrifying and while they did move me around a little, I never found myself out of control.
When it comes time to put some power down you will be impressed by how quickly it responds. Whether you are trying to catch the breakaway or simply trying to pass another rider in the bike lane you will have no trouble accelerating.
At 6' with a 32 inseam I fit perfectly on the 56
The R3 will also look great at your local Cafe Stop!

Aero
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

If you are in the market for a stiff aero race steed you owe it to yourself to checkout Cervelo's S3 disc. The fully internal wiring setup of the Shimano Di2 R8070 drivetrain gives this bike a super clean cockpit free of wires and housing. Impressive stopping power gives you confidence heading into the turns as well as helping you avoid that careless driver (which I discovered firsthand on my first ride).
Your can really put some power through this bike. It accelerates on command and handles better than I would have expected. Descending the steep canyons here in Utah is a breeze and you can hold your line in cross winds without too much trouble.
Sizing for Cervelo is based on Stack and Reach which makes it easy to get you on the right frame size. The 56 fit me perfectly at 6' and a 32" inseam.

These are easily my favorite warm weather bib. The perforated fabric helps keep me cool both in the dry Utah summers and the muggy Florida weather. The length is a little longer than others but fits me great and provides a nice amount of compression.
The straps are also perforated and wide enough to rest comfortably on your shoulders without cutting in or rolling up.
Sizing is a lot more realistic than other Italian made cycling apparel and I have not seen any issues in workmanship.
