Oh ya. I definitely need one of those!!!!!

But being that I won't be able to afford one I will pray for a big price drop on use P4's to hit the market. :banana:

So both the UCI and the Tri versions have Magura hydraulic brakes front and rear. The feel is supposed to be awesome.

Cervelo is supposed to have a 2 year exclusivity on the brakes before they can be sold individually.

Yeah, you're right. I was a little confused here for a moment.

Unfortunately I couldn't make the P5 work for me with my current aero position. The top tube is shorter and the head tube is taller than the P3 & P4 geometry. Bummer.

Ypsylon - you need one though. And then you need to sell me your P3........ :banana:

To be honest, at this moment I sorta like the Speed Concept. Cervélo will have to bring out some cool graphs and stuff.

And I'll have to go over into the west wing to check if I have a P3. I don't think so.

Pritchet - I'm sure you can work with the P5. First off, you can attach ANY bar/stem, so if you need extra drop/reach, you can just do that at the stem level. But, if you want to use the Aduro, it has an extra-low option that puts the pads just 40mm above the frame stack number. Here's the pad geometry (which I find far more useful than frame geometry anyway):

Just read about that earlier this morning. So of course now I am tempted, which is always a very bad, bad, bad thing.
