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

Those look like Chinese bootleg Cervélos.

The paint job on the R3 is awful. Doesn't help that it looks like they took the pics with a cellphone while suffering from hiccups.

Good to see the S2 remains. That bike has been around for a long time. Mine is considerably less fugly than the 2013 edition.

I think this whole aero frame thing, just might be a gimmick to make their brand name huge on the down tube. It's like a damn billboard on the S2.
Whatever happened to subtle branding?

I was leaning towards an R3 build, but I'm not really digging it from the pics. Looks like I'll be waiting for '14, or grabbing a leftover '12 if one can be found...

It isn't like they were pretty bikes before. Paint schemes aside, is there any innovation with the 2013 models?

Correct on all accounts. I hope my frame never breaks. I don't want it warranty replaced with that gaudy looking trash ever. I know it is just paint, but for f$%# sake!

Those Cervelo guys design great bikes, but if the color schemes they approve are any indication, they have the most atrocious taste in entire bicycle industry. And they have been consistent. My c. 2008/2009 bikes are much better than that, but they are not exactly visual triumphs either. Nice enough for me. And they are phenomenal bicycles.

Not shown in the photos above is the VWD R5, also in a matte gray finish, but unlike the R5CA, it sports a bit of red lettering. It's kind of growing on me.
