It took me a while to see what was wrong with the picture, but when I did: DAMN! That's a profoundly weird look.

Are they all riding the Specialized Chicane saddle there? Just curious since it's one of the only one's Spec makes without a cut out
Looks like I made a new 90 Proof friend

I must say, this Cervelo R3 looks rather smart. I do not know if those are just "classics edition" or will all r3 look like that all season

I may be way off with this, but doesn't the fork crown area (or whatever it's called) look like it's a bit wider than the stock version? However, unless I'm mistaken, the R3 'Mud' is only used for P-R, so it may well just a reflection...

There are 2 paint schemes for the R3 for 2013. One like that (with Ultegra) and one that is silver/white/black (105).


The 2013 Cervelos looked terrible in the initial pictures, but if you see them in person they actually look quite nice. I LOVE the look of the new R5, a nice matte black with some red highlights.

Why are they riding R3s?

Maybe lack of bikes after the Tour Med thefts?

It sure looks like it but I don't see that color available. Only the white team version. I want to try this saddle as it's suppose to be their most comfort oriented saddle. It still has a center relief just not cutout.

Since the R5 intro Cervelo/Garmin have still rode R3's regular/mud in the cobbled classics. Maybe because they're cheaper to replace if they crash, or the added weight helps on the cobbles?

The middle of the three saddles doesn't look like a chicane but like the one Cavendish has been on. One of their mtb ones I think? Interesting Boonens chicane vs the one all the way to the left, the one all the way to the left having the red FACT logo on the saddle rails from the s-works model and not on Boonens. A lot of those guys seem to be rocking the chicane lately though.
