    Cervelo R7 in 2013?

    Hi Folks

    I've heard rumours that Cervelo are releasing a 'new' R-series bike in March 2013 that'll essentially be a Di2-specific, R-series frame. - called an R7

    Has anyone else heard or seen anything? I really want to get a new R-bike to replace my R3-SL but I also want elecronic shifting without external cables messing-up the look of my frame...

    Thanks

    I've read an interview where Phil White mentions an "R7". Haven't heard anything about a date, but perhaps a release date for a new R model around the Spring Classics makes sense.

    Whatever the case, I hope it comes out soon...

    The electronic specific bike will be called R2Di2, it will be from another planet!

    edwinfabre,

    It was a magazine called "Cyclist" I think from the UK. The cover says "Ride the Atlantic Road". Page 28 & 29

    Here's an excerpt...

    Q: So the ethos at Cervelo will remain the same?

    A:...instil a culture in the company where our engineers could feel empowered, so if we said to make an R5 or an R7 they'd know how to do it almost telepathically, ..."

    Q: So you're making and R7?

    A: Maybe, who knows..there might be an R7, there might be an R9..

    I think they should name all the di2/eps specific bike with even numbers, R4/R6/R6ca

    Should be an R8, to follow the Fibonacci sequence.

    Do we realize some here may not immediately know what that signifies? Age.

     As long as the riders don't take 3CPO as it will be banned by the WADA.

     R&A has the R5 in VWD and a note saying it is compatible only with electronic components.  Is this the R7 or something else?

     

    Also why does R&A gets new and limited things before anyone else?  I see they have new (2013) R5CAs.  I thought Cervelo quit making them last year.

    I also read in an interview the R5ca production has been stopped. It's likely a 2011 or 2012 model.

    The question then becomes whether or not RA's listings are 100% accurate.

    Re: Cervelo R7 in 2013?

     Yeah, looking back the R5CA doesn't seem like a 2013 as the page says - they only have two sizes and the appearance isn't different. 

     

    But the 2013 R5 VWD is different - the paint scheme is the new one and "VWD" logo is on the stay.  Plus the note says it is for electronic components.

     

    So do they get special treatment and first delivery of new products?
