You like to remind us that you rode the Pyrenees and Alps every chance you get :twisted: 8)

I thought I read before that you hired a bike instead of taking yours ? What brand bike did you hire ?

I had an epic failure with regards to taking my bike overseas, which meant when my cervelo arrived in france, i couldn't ride it (seatpost got jammed in a too low position, nothing we tried could get it out, so i stashed it at paris airport for my 2 months there and hired 2 different bikes for my 2 and a bit weeks of cycling) :cry: :cry:

hired a litespeed titanium for the pyrenees riding and then a scott something-or-other (carbon) in the alps.

both very servicible bikes (obviously not as awesome as my cervelo, obviously) :wink:

the silver lining of that tale of woe is, um. . i had a great 2 months in europe and i now know how to remove a stuck cervelo seatpost

if anyone ever needs the tips on how to do it i can help (have read on the net of people actually breaking the seatpost to get it out and then replacing the whole thing :shock: )

my mechanic back in perth had it done for me in 15 minutes (i wish i had thought to ring him while i was in france)

Southern Highlands, at the Ol Bike shop?

I took a similar photo :D

I was wondering if anyone here who has a later model Cervelo which uses a BBright bottom bracket, could provide some advice regarding power meters? I was looking for a power meter that could fit on the 3D Rotor crankset that came with my R5. Does anyone here have any experience with this? I would prefer a crank based power meter instead of a power tap.

I think u might struggle but I'm not expert with 3D rotors.... I know alot use 3D+ cranks on SRM spiders... Very exxy tho...
Personally, I run a Quarq with my Di2 Group... Works well. Cost $1400 new, delivered from the US... Nashbar have been selling them this week for under $1k!!! If u go the 3D+ cranks on SRM route u won't get any change outta $3k I'd say!!

Here's a helpful thread on the cervelo forum: http://forums.cervelo.com/forums/p/1001 ... aspx#69369

Thanks. Is this the product you are referring to? http://www.nashbar.com/bikes/Product_10 ... 1___202345
It is quite a bit more than $1k.
Am I right to say that if I go with this option, I will lose the benefit of the BBright system?
Actually, I can't really quantify the difference between the BBright system and my older R3.
I use a powertap on my training bike, but I do not have one for the race bike. I found that training with a power meter and racing without a power meter removes some of the advantages of training with a power meter.

That's it... If u apply the supplied discount codes it come into under 1k$ apparently... Refer to here: http://forums.roadbikereview.com/hot-de ... 01181.html

Wrt to the BB... The BB30 Quarq bolts straight into the BBright shell, with PF30 bearings) without much mucking around (ie no adaptor a etc)... If u were using GXP with an adaptor (ie Enduro) yes u would lose the benefits, not that you'd notice...
