Properly setup, BBRight is just fine. You need to have a shop that knows what they are doing, or you yourself need to know what you are doing.

Heres my impression after 140km of riding and about 2000m elevation gain.

- Acceleration is amazing, typical of R series really. It feels stout and responsive. It climbs superbly.

Handling is very nice. Not twitchy but fast. Stable. Bb is 3mm lower and ht is 8mm lower. Trail has been increased. It's cliche to say but this frame just rails the descent. Our arena was Bergamo hills. Its one of the bike that i can feel i can descent with more speed but i couldnt. I fee the bike will handle speed just fine, i just dont have the balls. The confidence the bike provide you is reassuring. It feels less planted than the Dogma but more agile.

Comfort is just about what you expect from race bike. I feel Canyon Ultimate does a better job. Definitely more comfy with their basalt infused seatpost.

The new cervelo handlebar is very comfy. Its well thought out with support for lots of hand position. Very natural and offer a nice grip despite being aero shaped.

The test is limited by stock wheels and tires. Mavic Kayrium is ubet stiff but too narrow for my liking. The bike could feel a lot better with cotton casing tire.

Finish is okay. Not premium but passable. Graphic is safe but boring.

Overall impressive performance. One of the best descender and climber. Clean lines. Expensive.

Why rightfully? BB30A is basically the same design, the design makes sense.

Geo chart pedantry - the stack is 8mm lower, therefore the HT is over a centimetre lower :wink:

If you guys wanna geek out about development, I have most of the important charts from the engineering slide up on my site. My site is in Thai language but the slides are in english. No other outlet put this up. Hope you enjoy. Also have some very nice photos of the bike too :)

Thanks ichobi for posting. Some nice charts there.

Looks like Cervelo incorrectly labeled this chart as they have two 2016 R3 listed. One at 820g and another at 1018g. My assumption is that the 820g = 2016 R5 weight. Impressive they were able to shave 100g off the R3 from 2016 to 2017. Nice bang for the buck.

Here's ride review photos. 3G Warning: Massive gallery. http://www.duckingtiger.com/dt-first-ri ... 5-disc-r3/

Fun note: the camo 'wrapping' you saw the team used is an actual frame wrapping and not a paint. The wrapping itself costs more than the frame lol.
