I currently own a cervelo R5 from 2014 with ultegra and rim breaks, with Zipp 303s on. The bike is super light, very quick, but not the most comfortable as you might imagine.
I’m not in desperate need to buy something new, but if so I’d definitely be with disc’s, electric shifting optional.
I now stumbled across a R3 from 2017 in great condition with mechanical ultegra, disc’s and HED Ardennes wheels for 2200€.
Normally, if I were to buy a bike right now, I’d look at something like a SuperSix, Trek Domane/Emonda or a Specialized Tarmac. But somehow I just really like the cervelo bikes - but I haven’t ever been able to ride any of the others.
So what do you think how this cervelo compares to those other ones with similar specs?
