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 like it.



This S2 is the best race bike I've ever ridden. I do realize I say that about all my bikes, but what the hell. I liked it much more the 2nd time out, 38 miles. The fact that it was 28ºF and kinda nice instead of 15ºF and windy may have been a factor.

Your Uncle Pcad is utterly psyched my little poseur weenies. Oh yes.

After much consideration, whether anyone here is really Rueing or not is immaterial. So if you're not Rueing, don't worry.

For as much enjoyment you've gotten out of this bike with all of the build up and so on, you seem to have gotten your money's worth already. Not even one little smidgen of buyer's remorse?

Are you kidding? The BF Sturm und Drang over the cable routing is worth $3K alone, the build-up threads for months were worth $2K, the bike itself is easily worth what I paid for it, and I'm still getting hundreds of posts blogging about the stupid bike. I wish my stock investments paid off like that.

Speaking of cable routing...and I asked this on another thread, but you may have missed it...but why does your S2 have the behind the headtube cable entry? I thought that was reserved for the S3 model and the S2 kept the "old style" downtube entries?

The Cervelo website shows a bike with the new color scheme and the old cable routing. The new S2 bikes actually all have the new cable routing on the top tube like the S3.

Well based on OP's riding style in the pic, it seems he could have used a longer stem. :-)

But, even the text calls out:

"ICS Internal Cable Stops - Cervélo’s standard setting cable routing system. Easy to install, easy to service, easy to keep clean and improved aerodynamics. "


...as opposed to what's on the S3 page:

"ICS2 Internal Cable Stops – Entry through the toptube & Internal Cable Stops on the downtube combine the most aero cable routing with the lowest friction and lowest weight solution (no excess housing inside the frame)."

Hmmm...must've been a "running change" before they were even out...

after months of hyped threads how could you possibly admit it if you didn't like it? I believe you though, so congrats. I'm still having quite the love affair with my six13

I like the fact that you went ahead, got the aluminum version and didn't fall prey to all the poseur garbage. I've always liked the way they look.

I feel like Jens Voigt on this bike. Only slower.



Fits great. Perfect racing set up.

You know, that Jens might actually not be too fat for this sport. What is he like 6'3" 160lbs?

Ok i'm stumped, who's bike are you riding in these pics? It is not the same bike as your original post! I'm either the only one to notice or just a pea brained weenie.
