Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I suggest you take a look at the RS and R3 geo charts. Their very similar for 2012.

I bought a hybrid, a trainer and trailer to pull my 2 kids, lost 40 lbs from 240 to 200 at 6'1, now love the sport. Bought the Cervelo as a reward to myself, and no, I don't have a snake spine, and am still adjusting to the new position.

The LBS did a fitting and suggested I take it easy and we'll gradually adjust. I don't race (yet), but love the sport, and yes, I know it can be flipped...
Congrats on the weight loss. I dropped from 287 down to 185 a few years back. Cycling is a great way to keep it off. Don't worry about the "flip it" thing. Make the bike comfortable and enjoy the ride. The more you enjoy it, the more you'll ride it. Nice bike and a great "reward" to yourself for losing the weight!

Hi there pangpang! Great bike- I have noticed alot of stem nazis on these forums as well- and I would never change my bike setup based on their comments. But I will say this...I actually noticed my bike was much more comfortable after I flipped the stem. I don't know if it was the different distribution of my weight or what...But whatever the reason I was pleasantly suprised. I know everyones body types are different though...

That is a nice looking bike! The only thing I wish this bike (I have the same one) is a lighter fork. The thing weighs 600g.

REALLY DUMB QUESTION... please pardon it... how do the valves work on those Zipp wheels? Is the tube valve actually super long, or is there an extender?

I don't typically like the Wavy front fork on the dogma, but that paint scheme is off the hook. Very Very Nice Red/Black.

Actually a good question. There is an extender. Leave the valve in the open position, screw on an extension. When you clamp the pump on, the pressure from the pump activates the valve and the air goes right in. Just got to make sure the extender is really tight on the valve.

Has to be the best looking bike i've ever seen. Normally I don't like pinarello much, but the colour scheme so good. Man it's nice. How expensive was it.

Jeez................... Love that bike

actually that depends on the tire(tubulars)/tube(clinchers) not the wheel... Vittoria has a 110mm valve for 808s and such... don't always have to use extenders.
