    Where's the garage door - this needs the proper background to obtain full credit.
    Nice new ride - no excuses now...

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and 2011 Felt Z4. :-)

    Nice. Now which bank did you rob so you can buy a new Cervelo every year?

    The Cervelo RS is a GREAT bike. As you all know, bike lust does not have any real practical justification. I have ridden 95K on the S3 so far, its now my very favorite bike. What strikes me the most is how stable it feels. Going for a longer ride on it today, so will report more.

    I live in Vancouver, its either buy nice bikes or buy a house ;-) Condos here cost as much or more than a house in most places.

    I didn't say it had to be YOUR garage door

    Nice S3. I have an R3 and a P2C. My wife has a P3 track. I purchased the R3 for the suspension characteristics. If the S3 would have been available at the time, I may have purchased it versus the R3. FYI...the picture that I see is pretty small and does not do it justice.

    For some reason, I can only load the small picture link from Flickr
