is your life so small that you have to go to every bike forum there is, and whinge about a bike that you don't even own?
thankfully, pharding and others have brought this non-issue and the wheel thing to the attention to would-be purchasers of the S3... It took the manufacturer and resellers some time to address this and more importantly the wheel thing... interestingly, the wheel thing is not even mentioned on the CC website to possible S3 purchasers. It is laughable, that Cervelo is ensuring you that the fastest wheelsets will work... Will they back that up, that those wheels that won't fit, are not as fast or good.
I think next year we will know whether this whole S3 incompatibility was another Cervelo nightmare (e.g. 2.5 recall, Wolf SL recall), or whether it turned out to be a brilliant marketing strategy during the recession (lots of free advertising for this frameset)... Any bets whether they will redesign the chainstays... I look forward to seeing the first photos of a chewed up chainstay from either wheel or chainring... acceptable to some of the fanboys I guess to eke out a few seconds...
for a bunch of reasons, I told my dealer to forget about the S3 frame I had on order, and decided to go for a change to replace my crashed R3. I was a big Cervelo fan for the last 2 years, but they appear to have made a few missteps in my mind...
