The new S3 has the thinner seat stays and a fatter lower head tube and fork. I think it could be a winner by addressing many of the issues with aero road bikes. I'd wait for some ride reports and test ride before deciding. I'm planning to build a 2014 s3 with 404 FCCs and record.

Yeah, on paper the S3 seems to be a nice balance of aero, weight, stiffness, and comfort. I'm really looking forward to trying one out when the weather gets better in Toronto.

I sat on a '14 S2 yesterday, there was too much ice around to test ride it. I understand a lot of the tube shapes are the same as the S3, but not the fork. It certainly is different to the prior S series bikes. Cervelo has done a great job on the cable routing for both electronic and mechanical.
