First new one in 26 years! I couldn't resist the Cervelo "Share the Ride" promotion. All stock except for a longer 3T stem (and the cages of course). Going out for the maiden voyage!
Looks very fast!

I'd send it back unless you got a very good price on it---The seat post-In certain angles on my screen-Looks rusty
Great looking bike but it looks a bit large. You may have problems getting the test rides in to run the thing in--All those bearings to loosen up and the wheels to be re-trued after about 2,000 miles.
One thing this forum can offer to help you with is a volunteer to run it in for you. I would offer but Shipping may be expensive and you may not get it back.
So how much-How heavy-and how fast? Looks fast- looks expensive and looks light but only you can tell us.
Joshing aside--This looks great but if it is your first C.F.Bike- then cleaning it can be a problem--Spray on furniture polish works great but don't tell the wife. It can also scratch easily where cables run on the frame so get some of the clear protection stickers before you need them.
Apart from that- just ride it and let us have the ride report ASAP.
How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.
Great looking bike. Good luck with it. Hope you have a million trouble free, and safe mile with it.

It replaces a Cervelo Team Soloist (now the S1) which is very similar but aluminum. Most of the roads I ride are rough chip-seal and I just returned from a 35 mile ride. I'm very happy that what I heard about the shock absorbing quality of CF is true. It is noticeably smoother.
Fun, fun, fun!
Looks great. Enjoy it.
Looking at the way it is set up, just curious whether you tried/considered going with the next larger size.
The more you ride your bike, the less your ass will hurt.
Flip it and slam it.
Sweet (and fast) ride...

Very sweet looking bike. I figured that deal they offered would bring in some buyers for the stuff. Good choice.
