  • Re: Is it cable rattle or something else - Soloist carbon?

    I had the very same problem.  In fact, my Soloist Carbon was initially the rattlingist (is that a word?) bike that I had ever been on.  My fix was I just zip tied the two shifting cables together near the head tube; dont kink them.  I also put a piece of clear plastic on each side of the head tube where the shifting cables ...

  • Re: P2C new color scheme

    I've been mulling over getting a P2C for the past couple years, but I never really liked the black & blue and this year's white & red wasn't much of an improvement.  But hey, I really dig both 2008 color schemes.  Oh man, temptation is really about to set in.

  • Re: R3 weight

    According to Competitive Cyclist's kit calculator where you can spec out bikes, a 54cm R3 Ultegra equipped bike would weigh 7042 grams or 15.5 lbs, but the number is actually going to be a bit higher than that.  For some reason their Ultegra kit isn't including crank and front derailers.  You can manually add them via ...

  • Re: Cervélo: collect them all!

     I just have my Soloist Carbon, but I'm thinking about getting a P2C or a P3 Carbon down the road.  I have already signed up for the 2008 70.3 California Ironman and I'm going to sign up for either the 2008 Ironman Canada or Wisconsin event as soon as registration opens up.  If somehow I manage to actually qualify ...

  • Re: I'm 5'10. My LBS is trying to sell me a 58cm Dual... Is that too big for me?

    If you go to Competitive Cyclist or Wrench Science websites, they have fit calculators that you can use that will definitely put you in the ballpark for sizing.  The key is to do them exactly as they say to do them and with someone else actually taking the measurements.  BTW, there are other fit calculators out there too that ...

  • Re: Picture of your Cervelo

    It's made by Fizik.  It's the fi'zi:k Saddle Pa:k.  It attaches to compatible 2007 Fizik saddles via the so-called "Integrated Clip System."  I bought this one as a set with the saddle (an Arione) in a custom color called volcano; it goes great with the Cervélo red.  Heres a link to the ...

     Here's my Soloist Carbon on my first ride.  I have since added Zipp carbon fiber bottle cages. http://picasaweb.google.com/fzrdave/MyCervelo/photo#5092354061188919218 One of these days I'll figure out how to post my pictures into this forum, but I guess not today.

     I can't say for sure, but a 58cm seems like it would be too big you.  I'm 6'2" with short legs and I'm barely on a 58cm Soloist; it was pretty close for me between the 56cm and the 58cm.  As posted above, I think you need a second opinion and another fitting.  Good luck!

  • Re: Origin of the name "Cervélo"?

    Actually, its the blending of the Italian word for brain, cervello, with the French word for bike, vélo, which of course gives you Cervélo.

  • Re: sizing.. bikefit

    The smartest thing you can do is find a dealer and get properly sized by a trained employee and then take the two closest sizes out for genuine test rides.  When I went in to buy my Soloist Carbon, I thought for sure that I needed a 56cm based upon threads in other bike forums and my own personal research and experiences with other ...
