I've noticed lots of places discounting current models of the Cervélo range, and a conversation with two LBSs today had them both saying "something is happening but nobody will tell us what".

I'm intrigued (and it's not often I'm intrigued enough to post about it!).

A load of 'smoke & mirrors' for what ends up just being new paint schemes, or is there something genuinely more interesting / exciting on the way?...

Expecting internal cable run and hydraulic compatibility on R series. Maybe dedicated disc version.

My tip is NEW R3 and R5 having the same mold as RCA = the same Squoval3 shapes.
R5 actually being RCA produced in China withnout those extra expensive carbon fibers and nano coating on the fork. So, it wil be a little heavier than RCA.
Internal routing....for sure!

An R3 disc would be nice. Wasn't there also talk a few years ago of Cervelo wanting to change their distribution to be a little more like Canyon's, with bikes ordered through their site but fulfilled by certified dealers?

I really hope for RCA tech to trickle down. If so, I see a R3 in my future

An RCA like R5 would be cool.

"An RCA like R5 would be cool."

Isn't that what the R5 is right now? Did you mean to write an RCA like R3?

R5 is like the R5CA. They are talking about the new RCA that came out earlier this year.

Yeah, the current R5 is nothing like the RCA. New tube shapes, new cable routing, different layup, etc

Brain fart on my part, mental lapse on my part. Thanks for setting me straight. Now I'll go out and ride my bike some to clear my head. :thumbup:

Given the comments Damon has made about how slow (aerodynamically) discs are I'd be surprised to see a disc frame. Unless they finally release the R3 Mud as an entry into the GRR market.

RCA trickle down to R3 would be pretty exciting.

Think internal cable routing or at least changed routing is probably a given at this point, especially something that is more electric friendly?
Looks like I made a new 90 Proof friend

@ cyclenutnz

I am 99% Cervelo released a mud at the end of last year, limited to 300 I think ?

I don't really count that one - it's just to meet UCI requirements.
I was meaning if they choose to morph that bike into a (widely distributed) competitor for Roubaix/Domane market.

From the little I've heard around here, you guys should be focusing on the letter S instead of R. Or maybe in addition to.
