    Same here. I think the anodized pieces and the matte black frameset and EDGE fork stands out from the everyday, typical, road bike. Nicely done.
    Speedvagen... Yes, please.

    Brown saddle on an all-black bike? Ew. That's like wearing a brown shoes with a black belt.

    after further review, the other pictures of EPQ framesets do not have the spade on the frame. Nor do they say "B STAY" on the seatstay. The chain and seat stays do not look right, and I can say without a doubt that bike is a conterfeit frame, with a cheap ass homebuild.

    That's cause it's an EPS, not EPQ.

    Not denying that it's fake, but the decals are all correct (it's an EPS):

    I stand corrected... I think my theory of it being fake was actually working in the poster's favor. He didn't look like he had egg on his face when I thought it was a counterfeit frame. Now, if it's the real thing, DUDE WHAT ARE YOU THINKING WITH THAT BUILD??

    my recently finished IF Crown Jewel SE with Campy Chorus....still dialing in stem fit, hence the uncut steerer. 50 miles in the last two days, and it rides like a dream if3.jpgif2.jpgif4.jpgif1.jpg

    Hello guys,
    I am new to this thread and I don't know if I supposed to start a new one but I need some advise from you.
    I am currently riding Fuji SST3 with mixed components between 105 and ultegra, btw this is my first carbon road bike.
    I saw in our LBS they have sale on Cervelo S2 $3000 which is full shimano ultegra, color white-red.
    My question is,
    Is it worth to upgrade from my Fuji SST3 ?
    Is it much better bike and mainly the frame?

    All suggestion are welcome even with different brand, thanks a lot

    It's worth it if you like the Cervelo better and it fits you well. The bike is nicer, without a doubt.

    I am not a PRO but I like good things and of course I know it costs, but that's a life
    If any other suggestion, very welcome.

    Start a thread asking these questions. Many people won't see these posts unless they click onthis thread. It's always nice to have your own thread to stay organized as well. These are all nice bikes you are speaking of, but the honest truth is you should ride each one and decide which one feels best. I don't mean a 5 minute parking lot ride either... go a few miles. Start out by riding the same bike with campy, sram, and shimano... this will help you figure out which groupset you like the feel of best (braking feel and shifting are very personal things) then once you have that hammered out, test ride every bike you can get your hands on which has that groupset you picked out. Sounds like you are already pretty set on shimano, so maybe you can skip step one.

    I rode a bunch of bikes with SRAM Force, Campy Chorus 11, and Shimano Ultegra. I picked ultegra. I then rode every bike I could get my hands on that had an Ultegra groupset. I rode Focus Izalco Team, BMC SL01, Pinarello FP4, Specialized Tarmac, Scott Addict, Trek Madone, Colnago something... there were more. They were all around the same price, and had the same groupset with similar components. It made choosing my bike very easy because all I had to pay attention to was handling, feel in and out of the saddle, and stuff like that. Some bikes I got on for a few blocks and hated, others I rode for miles and enjoyed. I rode some bikes 3-5 times over the course of a couple of weeks. In the end, I know that I got the best bike for me. To me, this is the only way to choose a bike, YMMV.

    The short answer to your question is yes, those bikes a better than your Fuji. Better is subjective though. Some bikes you look at and just want to ride. If you are in love with your bike, it doesn't matter how "good" or "bad" it is. The honest truth is you have a really nice bike. If you are upgrading just to upgrade, then I'd say it's unnecessary, and you'd be better off spending 200-300 to get a perfect fit dialed in by a professional. If you're upgrading because you're unhappy with your bike, then go ride everything you can get your hands on and buy what gives you a b0ner.
