Weaknesses:    AERO SEAT POST LIMITS ACCESSORIES YOU CAN PUT UNDER SEAT.

Bottom Line:   
This bike only knows one speed-fast. What a pleasure to ride a comfortable, yet solid bike. I'm 6-2 190 and the 61cm bike handles great. With it's stock training wheels on the P3 is faster than my old bike was with race wheels on. This is the bike if you want hard-core tri rocket.

Strengths:    appearance- very flashy looking, people remember it.
-very stiff, no power lost on bike.
-unparalleled aerodynamics. compared to Cervelo everyone else is going backwards.


Weaknesses:    the colour yellow- difficult to keep looking clean, which is a good sign 'cause it means i love to ride it

Bottom Line:   
i loooveeee this bike. I've ridden it in races ranging from the F1 supersprint series in Australia to a half ironman in Mexico. In every race it just begs to go fast.
I've changed the set up of the bike to accomodate drafting and non-drafting races, and find both setups exceptionally comfortable. I am quite low on my aerobars, and people are often surprised to see that I can sustain it for a long time. The only explanation is that its extremely comfortable, and amazingly fast. My weight is distributed well between my saddle and my bars, so there are no extreme pressure points, no sore elbows or tight traps. The bike handles well on descents that even my fear factor doesn't handle as well. This is saying a lot for a triathlon geometry bike! My position over the bottom bracket and the stifness of the bike also mean that I feel like every pedal stroke propels me forward. I get rewarded for all the effort I put into the bike. I'm sure the aero design of the downtube, seatpost and seat tube play a part.
I am extremely happy with this bike, and I look forward to the chances to train and race on it, which are shared by my other steed of speed, the Cervelo One.

New Ride - Cervelo P3 frame converted to fixed

My Swift was giving me too many problems. Seat post was slipping and driving me absolutely nuts. I tried everything to stop it from slipping. And believe me I was considering driving a bolt through the seat tube and the seat post to keep it in one place. What pushed me over the edge was getti ... Read More »

Almost ready to pull the trigger on a Cervelo P3 track frame

The frames look unbelievable. They have a good pedigree and I am looking for another carbon track frame. The price is right too. Big question is existing parts capability. It is a little tough finding good in depth info on the Cervelo other than the pseudo advertising and sparse user ... Read More »
