Good point. I tried the R3 and the Soloist carbon, both 54cm, and went with the Soloist. I'm 153lbs 5'10" but I found the Soloist better suited for me. Weight and fitness are key factors in choosing an expensive bike.
There is a limited supply of R3s. The complete shimano equipped bikes shipped first, followed by the 56cm frames. In bare frames, you may not find anything but the 56cm available at the present time (that's all Excel Sports has).
My LBS cannot keep the Soloist Carbon and R3 54cm and 56cm in stock. They sold 4 in 3 days.

My friend who owns the bike has a Time, Cervelo R3 and 585. He ranks them in order: Time, 585, R3

Be sure and post your thoughts! I am also considering the above bikes, as well as a Kona King Zing (team deal).adelaney01 said:Flying, that's a one sweet looking bike.
I get to test ride the C-50 and the 585 tomorrow. The LBS sold their demo R3 Thursday.
Thanks again for the feedback.
