They don't even name it the C anymore. The category-phrase sounds like 'modern road' bike instead of aero, endurance etc.
Judging the specs, I found it interested enough plus very attractive to immediately order it. I found it as sexy, and maybe even better, then the 'new SL7'
Sounds cool!
Did they say when it was due to land?

Long and low isn't.... and R5 is probably the best contender for me.
I hate the looks of bikes with 20-30mm of spacers and 90mm stems.
Even worse if it's an aero bike.
And to make matters worse most aero bikes are even longer and lower than their all around brothers.
To obtain any aero gains, more than a low position on a "regular" road bike, i guess you should rub your nose on the front tire.
My nose never rub the front tire. But the front tip of my helmet once did, in a sprint when I don't know what I'm doing and simply try to be as low as possible. Once I'm more mature and care about safety, I never sprint without looking up the road again.

Somewhere in between 21st and 27th of July. Around and about the same date as the SL7

Looks really good...think every other semi-aero bike, but with 2cm more frame stack for amateur cyclists and more tire clearance. No gimmicks. The BMC Roadmachine seems like the closest comparison.

What sort of tire clearance? Cyclocross bike a like, up to about 35 or so?

The AXS version of the new bike comes stock with Zipp 303S's (hookless & 23mm internal) and 28mm Corsa Control TLRs, so you can guess the real size of the tyres on the rims; there should be a ton of clearance.

I was wondering if it would come with the new Santa Cruz wheels?

Found this on the Northern Ride site (https://www.northernride.com/Cervelo-R- ... s/2011.htm)...Looks like a bit of renaming/rebranding going on at Cervelo...Also, it looks like no more rim brake frames for 2020. They're betting on disc moving forward. Glad I picked up a 2019 R5 rim frame!!

Rebranding of R/S3 to R/S-Series
Cervelo are known for their high quality frame production with their pro tour riders selecting bikes across the range to ride at the highest level. As pro riders have been seen across models Cervelo are in the process of re-branding their '3' range to the 'Series' range. What does this mean? Moving forward the Cervelo R3 will be know as the Cervelo R-Series and the Cervelo S3 will be know as the Cervelo S-Series. This is to demonstrate the frames are top level frames, ridden by pro riders and comparable to many other pro level frames from other brands. The introduction of this change can be seen already on the new Sram AXS models in the 2020 Cervelo S-Series Force AXS and 2020 Cervelo R-Series Force AXS.

So the rebranding of the R-Series and S-Series range will increase as the years progress but they will still ulilise the '3' level frams, just demonstrate their high quality. If you are however looking for the highest quality, arguably a step above the rest of the brands this is where the '5' level frames fit in; the newest technology and highest quality aspirational products available from Cervelo.

That branding is nothing new, it's been going on since the back end of last year, possibly longer? It never made sense to me to have an R/S/P 2&3 since they were identical frames just with different build specs (and exceptionally subtle fork difference in the case of the P3).

I would appreciate the change but they really cocked it up with the PX series where they made it the opposite way around. i.e. the new PX series is the top of the range and the older P5x is the 'lesser' model... why they didn't call the PX series simply a 'new' P5x i have no idea!

I ride all surfaces (mainly MTB) and have only started to look at Cervelo again as it's time to find a replacement for my 2014 R5. So it's all new to me. I won't buy current year bikes anymore my arse is too old. But yeah, all this rebranding seems a bit confusing. Would be good if Cervelo had a page explaining all this...

The upcoming bike and the Aspero are indicators that all updates will have more emotive names.

S* successor -> sexy name
R* successor -> sexy name
current S3 -> temporary rename to S-Series -> phased out
current R3/R2 -> temporary rename to R-Series -> phased out

Idk maybe.

^^^ you may be onto something here (I don't know either, but seems logical with the movements Cervelo is making).
Except they for sure are going to carry the P series name for quite a while simply because these bikes definitely aren't upgraded by the standard 3 year cycle, unless they simply do a running sexy-name upgrade for the P5 Disc, P series disc, Px disc etc

For a team kit, I always think the Sunweb versions look quite good with subdued sponsor logos. By default I would say no to team bikes, but this one (as well as last one) are alright.

The red/black/white color helps though.

For a team specific colorway, that is extremely nice!
