Very dated looking. Reminds me of mid 90s.

Only S5 seems compatible with Di2 internal wiring, others are a no-go for Di2 fans.

These are by far the most hideous looking Cervelo I've seen to date. Why did they bring back the ugly "E" for the P5/P2? Everyone hated that. They all look dated, old and they actually look CHEAP, with this amount of excessive graphic design. So much for making classy looking bikes.

The only one that's nice is the R5CA, but it's hard to make a matte black bike look bad.

It actually seems like the new logo designs, font, and unnecessary graphic design are just trying to make the bikes look "fast". However, it's just really cheesy and cheap looking.

I really thought the trend was going to very minimal schemes. I don't love the stealth (gloss on matte) trend, but at least it signaled that bike manufacturers realized that people didn't love riding an advertisement. Even Trek has paired down the logos this year (last year I think the Speed Concept had something like 9 Trek logos per side).

The R3 and R5 aren't bad, but the S-series and P-series are hideous.

Sad because I really thought that the 2011-2012 scheme was the first time that Cervelo's weren't awful looking.

I love that R3. The frame color.

Disappointing.

I like that R3. It's pretty unique - the rest... well not so much. I really don't like the graphics on the P5.

What happened to this...?

These are hideous! What were they thinking?

Looks like a kids bike from Tesco.

The colour schemes this year are pretty bad, I know I complained that they were boring last year, but they were still classic in their own way.

I'm disappointed by the apparent lack of internal Di2 routing for the R-series, and Cervelo's official position on the matter is still that you're not supposed to drill the frame to do it, despite Garmin-Sharp having done it this season.

The S5 looks like it might be in a matte finish, and they're basically putting the same paint on the VWD/base models (you can see, one has "VWD" on the chainstays, the other does not.) This is probably the first time where I'd rather buy an older model vs. the shiny new ones.

Maybe they'll look more attractive with better light and quality photography. :|
