I have become sort of obsessed with my new ( to me ) S1. As said before I wanted one since seeing the "Overcoming" documentary about team CSC at the 2004 Tour. Bought a Black and blue frameset off here 7 or 8 years ago , then rode a mates and absolutely could not get on with it after my horrendous crash previous to buying. It was just too stiff where I was recuperating after breaking elbows , wrists and both hands . This problem also caused me to sell my beloved 2007 c'dale system six.
Ironically the bike that tried to kill me was still fine. Anyway time is clearly a great healer as I decided to try again , and I fucking love it , even for a fatty like me it flatters and makes every ride feel special and I am again going further and further and loosing the lockdown "carbohydrate store" I have gained. I know they can be a bit marmite , but I think all Cervelo look great and just special amongst everything else.
Be gentle , not finished yet , still pretty much as purchased .
Cool bikes, these last two pages! I am prompted to get mine out of hibernation.
Do it . Then post some pictures.
S2's the one at the top.
Recent pic of the P3. Forgot it has non-matching forks which I found for £20.
It’s getting on a bit now, lots of blemishes to the white paintjob and paint around the brake cable holes is starting to flake away.
Might treat it to a respray if the seatclamp doesn’t explode this racing season...
@Brommers is that one of Tester’s rear light seat clamp brackets on the P2?
Well spotted. It is indeed.
Oh my oh my.
This is a lovely page so far. Sorry to fuck it up with my 2 cents, all pictured at the local velodrome. A mate's T1, my own T3 and a very good mate's T4. The last actually being a dentist ¯_(ツ)_/¯
my own T3

Tell us about that paint, Wolf fork suggests that it's a very old P3T in new clothes.
Yeah I guess it's a youngtimer. Previous owner was a banker that wanted everything black. I think you can imagine what his home looks like. I don't know how, but I seem to end up with black bikes on a regular basis. I really like some colour, but the blacks apparantly are bargains and I'm Dutch. I'm told that the cf on the old T3 is much lesser than the later version, but I have no clue how to investigate on this.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
