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

You say that like its a bad thing. BF acceptance is number 1, personal preference is #2 followed by fit #3

As impressed as I have been with my Cervelo S2 (I just replaced the two year old frame with an identical fresh copy, I love the bike) I am even more impressed with the P3 TT bike I just got. I rode a Cannondale Six13 Slice for 2+ years and this Cervelo seriously blows it away. What a great bike. I'll ride the TT bike much more often in training now.

I love it. This is the best I ever had so far. It's grippy in any condition - wet, dry with gloves or without it. It's thinner than the original lizard skin and lighter. Plus, it looks cool. Dimples matches my ZIPP 404's

also is it possible to run the cables under the stem instead of over the top? if so i think that would be the way to go and clean it up a bit. not trying to tell you what to do with your bike just trying to help.

UPDATE: -26 C today. Rollers run and new picture with some little changes: FIZIK blinker attached under the seat. Stealth and functional.
