    Great choice...and welcome to the to the R3 family. I have 1800 miles on mine and I like it a lot. Our local dealer continues to sell more of them than the SLC SL. It is too bad you are putting Campy on such a pure machine.

    Especially since the bike he's selling has Shimano stuff on it. Why the switch Cleave? Deal you couldn't pass on?

    BTW, the best thing Cervelo ever did to the R3 was make it in white.

    Au contraire my friends. The holiest sanctuary of bicycle racing is in Italy, not Japan. Seriously, I've had bikes with Japanese components and those with Italian components and each has it's virtues and faults. However, given what I prefer from a functional standpoint, it's Campy for me. (BTW, my Look has Campy Record on it.)

    Andy, Andy, Andy...the ideal racing bike color is red. I am already trying to figure out how to justify a custom paint job on the frame.
    Thanks.

    LOL Cleave! You should have found an 2007 model to buy if you like red. At least the white frame won't clash with your racing kit! And I see on a second look the Look does have Campy on it. Guess I need glasses.

    Here is a color scheme for you. I would lose the flowers.

    ^^^ Nice. I presume the owner was getting ready for Ironman Hawaii?

    I was thinking more like red with cervelo being clearcoated carbon.
    Thanks.
