New bike w/ pictures!
 
Over the weekend I stumbled across a Craigslist ad that was just too good of a deal to pass up. So now, a nice chunk of change later, I am the proud owner of a Cervelo P3SL.

Pretty, isn't she?

If you want to see more pictures (and one of my "old" bike) go here. There's also a complete list of components on my blog. :)

Holy Schneikies! That's gorgeous.

I'm jealous! So, you going to do the Tri in Indy at Eagle Creek the 19th? If so, unfortunately, I won't be there, but we'll love to hear about it.

Good to see your metamorphosis into a full blown cyclechotic. ;)

Them's some weird handle bars :p

DanelleF 07-02-08 08:35 AM

nice bike!

Askel 07-02-08 09:06 AM

Dude, I hate to tell you this- but you probably got a good deal because that thing has been in accident.

Rear ended, for sure. Look how that rear wheel got smashed into the seat tube. :p

Nothing a new frame won't fix though. I'd box that one up and send it to me. :D

Sweet speed demons! That is one fast lookin' bike.

FightingPanther 07-02-08 09:26 AM

ridiculous, what did you pay if you don't mind and how many miles does it have on it

I don't think I'm going to any triathlons this year. While my cycling and swimming may be up to par, I still can't run much at all. I guess I should work on that. My plans for next year, however, do involve both triathlons and some time trials. If all goes well, I might even do some other races as well.

When I got the bike, it didn't have wheels, a saddle, or pedals. It cost $2000. After I got all that stuff though it brought up the grand total to $3100. Not too shabby considering if all this stuff was new, it would have cost just north of $5500. :)

Also, the pedals that are on that bike now are not the ones that I will permanently have on there. I have a pair of Speedplay Zeroes that I use on my road bike and I wanted the same pedals on this, but the shop had to order them. In the meantime, I still wanted to ride this beauty, so I had them throw on my old SPD pedals.

One Sweet Ride!

I recently just hasd to have a Tri/Time Trial bike myself. I have come to realize that I need some regular drop bars and a new stem..

I fear not being able to get back up:twitchy:

George 07-02-08 09:56 AM

I guess I should be watching Craigslist a little more. That sure is a sweet looking bike, congratulations.

cohophysh 07-02-08 10:06 AM

That is just wrong :)

epcolt 07-02-08 10:22 AM

Sexy!

jyossarian 07-02-08 11:09 AM

I likes alot. Congrats!

DTSCDS 07-02-08 12:43 PM

That looks just like my bike.

Well...It doesn't look EXACTLY like mine. Mine has two tires a seat and handlebars too. So, let's just say it looks sorta like mine.
I have to agree with a previous post--that rear tire / seat tube area don't look right. You might want a body shop to check it out! Hopefully you can get your money back if they can't bend that back out.
:rolleyes: :innocent:

chunkyd 07-02-08 09:41 PM

It's sad when you mentally respond the same way to a bike picture as you do to some cute little thing walking by. It's a sad day gents sad day! \
What does that make me? a Cyclesexual? what? lol

Amazing looking bike! Ryan Hulce kicked me and Toms butt on one of those! lol

Caincando1 07-03-08 07:46 AM

JM, being a tri geek I'm soooo envious! Congrats man!
