On the NTN bearings subject, it is shame that the certain source based in UK almost doubled their price over a year or so. Asking £29 for one bearing is outrageus, paying this money madness.
I believe its temporary. All NTN bearings are sold out at the local bearing webshop I know.

Indeed it's strange to see all prices having gone up (also of the BB's itself) since Corona. In part due to success, but hopefully temporary as well. I'd probably still pay the price (not for the bearings of course) if I bought a new Cervelo. Relatively speaking it's not thát expensive, just that we're used to buying cheap BB's with shitty bearings for little money.

Of course, anything in this price range compared to the value of our bikes sounds llike negligible amount. I doubt it is corona virus driven situation. These bearings can be sourced for less than the half of £29 price from reputable industry suppliers in Europe (in stock). Just for the reference, in Japan these bearings are for around £8.

It's weird they are referring to the R3 as the R-Series, but they still have dedicated pages for the R5 and R2. I'm thinking will the R5 be renamed/rebadged similar to Venge/Tarmac/Roubaix/Diverge? So it'll be S5/???/R-Series/Aspero? I have a feeling the C5 goes away.

If you go to https://cervelo.com/en_US/bikes/classic-road the R3 appears under the R-Series link.
