Cervelo is celebrating the first Tour de France appearance of their Cervelo Test Team with two limited edition models, the S3 and the R3SL. Ã‚Â The S3, shown above, is the exact same frame the team will ride in this year’s Tour. Ã‚Â It’s sub-1000g and uses an hourglass shaped headtube and aero shapes to help make it fast. Ã‚Â Quantities are extremely limited, so order now if you need this for your collection.
Hit ‘more’ to see the R3SL frame that Carlos Sastre will be riding…
The R3 uses very thin seatstays to add vertical compliance for a more comfortable ride. Ã‚Â Both bike eschew the trendy integrated seatpost designs in favor of traditional posts, which makes them more consumer friendly. Ã‚Â MSRP for the Tour edition is $4,300…a $400 premium over the normal R3SL frame.
The S3 is $4,500 for both the regular and TdF limited edition frame.
