    2018 R3 seatpost

    I like to rotate my saddle a bit to the left. It's hard to tell, but in the pics I've seen, it looks like the seatpost on the 2018 R3 has a flat section in the back that won't allow it to be rotated in the frame. Is this the case?

    Just by the images on the Cervelo site, it definitely looks like there's a flat trailing side on the seatpost that corresponds to the seat tube shape. Probably will not allow for any rotation when inserted or especially when tightened. You might want to visit a Cervelo dealer to make sure. There could be a way to rotate seat at the top of the seatpost? The new R2 still looks to have a round seatpost.

    Hi bigmatt, The R2 and R3 use round seatposts (Performance, SP19), only the R5 has the truncated seatpost (SP18) which cannot be rotated. Hope that helps.

    Thanks for the feedback Jakes! I assume the S3 seatpost clamp does not rotate...
