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

Not Basso, but I was reading just a second before that Julich is on 52.7 ... so I imagine he might also have a custom size.

I am mulling over the new Soloist Carbon but am not sure where in my neck of the woods I can test ride.

cervelo doesn't make custom frames for their riders. i can't cite an exact source, but i know that i have read this many times, and have read quotes from Gerard Vroomen and Phil White stating that they do not make custom frames for their riders....CSC uses the same frames and the same sizes that the customer can buy.

I read that too... It can be found on the Cervelo website - exactly where, I'm not to sure...

Here is quote from Vroom. I don't know if he was refering to the race P3
or all P3's.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
As Vroomen pragmatically said in an interview with Cyclingnews last year,

He added, "Not all our frames are made in Taiwan. It really depends from model to model. For example, Bobby’s P3 (time trial machine) is made in the US, some other frames are made in Canada, it all depends on what we are trying to accomplish."

Oh it must be a standard size then, I stand corrected. I saw it on the bottom of this cyclingnews article where there is a Specification section and it sounded a bit odd so I assumed it was custom.
