    My Cervelo Purchase

    Just wanted to share my purchase this weekend. I went to the LBS this weekend to check out new bikes for the wife for christmas. She had been riding her old Marin for a couple of years now and it was time to get her an upgrade. I brought her bike down with me and worked with the tech/salesperson for about an hour to measure her old bike and compared it to the cervelo R series. Measurements put her on the 48 size, but will probably need to change the stem. Being the end of the season, they didn't have any bikes in stock in the 48 size. I was planning on getting the R3 Di2, but the salesperson was able to order the R2 105 (White-frame) at close out price. The Di2 upgrade at merlin was ~$830 vs $1400 at the LBS. So for much less than the stock price for the R3 Di2, I was able to get the R2 with Di2 upgrade and a new wheelset (ROL SL) for about $1500 less. I am not sure who is going to be more excited, me or the wife. lol
