Trash talk...actually thats all it really is...the LBS talking rubbish.
some people indeed have more money than sense...but they have enough sense to buy what makes them happy![/SIGPIC]
+1 to the LBS thinking of the R2.5 recall, but writing off the R3 because of it is ridiculous.
To the flexy frame post...
I can speak for the size 56 frame and it's super ultra mega stiff (that's technical terminology). I'm 190lbs and it doesn't flex in the slightest.
I'm sure the guys who think the R3 is a stiff bike are the same guys who think that scandium frames are lively and the easton slx fork is the stiffest theyeve ever ridden.
The stiffness reviews of the r3 are all done by weight, as a divisor.
Heres what a teamate of mine has to say about the r3, http://www.serotta.com/forum/showthr...ighlight=flexy
Think what you want, I'm done with this thread.
Cat 1 o-meter 33%
I read somewhere that the R3 doesn't even need the seat stays to work well.

And I'm sure O'grady wouldnt get in trouble if he said something bad about the bike right?
Also FYI Cancellara is way closer to 190lbs.

What a strange thread. Allow me to add to some more facts:
- The Pinarello Prince Carbon is actually made of cast iron with a fake carbon coating. It weighs 32 kg.
- I had a friend who discolated his shoulder because his Surly LHT snapped in 4 pieces when he was doing a trackstand. Those bikes are flimsy.
- Some other random person I overheard in Macdonalds said that Campy is recalling its entire line of rear deraillers because they break after 50-100 kms of use.
I heard the R3 causes male pattern baldness.
