I never cared much for Cervelos, but I've got to say I'm pretty smitten with all of the R series getting posted around here lately.
I crashed my R3SL and was dead set on crash replacing it for the new (at the time) black and white S5. Cav's bike, I think. The release date got pushed back and I started to get on shaky ground with my wife because of the delay. She was beginning to lose interest in my new bike purchase.

Lifetime warranty for the original owner is nice. After speaking with Cervelo customer service and feeling encouraged by LAJ's carbon repair, I got it fixed for $500 and went a different direction. Best idea ever. The grass isn't always greener.

Now that the geometry seems to be returning to normal, the Rs continue to kick ass. They excel at everything. As WhyFi pointed out, a bit twitchy/responsive at first, but then it's all good. They're more bike than any of us would ever need. We're holding the bike back.
