Stumbled upon this today: http://www.cervelo.com/en/bikes/r-series/r3.html

Same style as the R5 but in white, I like. Anyone know if this is available already?

Usually Cervélo is known to launch bikes that are immediately available.

This " just give the toptube another color" concept is very poor-simplistic IMHO.

Didn't cannondale do something similar a couple years back. Looks good to me, though. Simple and clean.

I am not a fan. It looks like someone has repaired the top tube and not sprayed it to match the rest of the bike.
It just does not flow. The top tube looks like its just lumped on.

It is conceptually rich and complex. But you can always get a pinarello or willier if you fancy barroque.

Agree. Gimmicky paint jobs on carbon race bikes are the equivalent of balding guys growing facial hair.

I do like it better than the R5's red top tube, but still not my cup of tea.

The S and P line-ups have better paint jobs.
