Long time lurker and poster, first time to finally put up pics of my ride.

It's been five years since I pulled the trigger on my dream frame, a Cervelo R3.

Came from a very nice (if a bit too small) Giant TCR Advanced in T-Mobile colors.

Here's a pic from last year, before I switched wheelsets. Build list and closeups to follow.

Thanks, Roobay!

Yeah, the 2006 ones were really cool, with the red/white livery over nude carbon, 32.4mm seatpost notwithstanding. Luckily, I found a Deda Blackstick at my LBS.

Feedback?

Suggestions?

I'm currently thinking of new bars, but don't want to go the 3T route, since everyone has them.
