New Cervelo R3 in store – special offer on existing R3 stock

New Cervelo R3New R3 in store

Whilst many Cervelo fans aspire to owning the Pro Tour proven R5 (or even the R5CA), in reality the more wallet-friendly R3 is more likely to be within reach. The R3 has long been the benchmark by which many lightweight road bikes are measured, and for 2014 Cervelo have released a new version of the highly popular bike.

Inheriting many features from the Project California and R5, the new R3 features Squoval3 tubing and internal cable routing, whilst retaining the BBRight bottom bracket and a super comfortable rear triangle that the old R3 was renowned for.

Finished in gloss black and blue with silver decals, the new R3 is also a departure from most current Cervelos, which are predominantly black, silver, red and white. Equipped with Shimano’s excellent 11 speed Ultegra groupset and the new black FSA SLK finishing kit, everyone in the shop agrees that the new R3 is a particularly handsome bike.

Stock prices are B#3100 for 11 speed Ultegra (which we have in stock), whilst a Di2 equipped Ultegra version will cost B#4200. Of course, at Cycle Art we can build a bike to any specification you like, so if you prefer your bikes with SRAM or Campagnolo, or wish to upgrade to Dura-Ace, it’s an option.

2013 Cervelo R32013 R3 Special Offer

Of course, when a new model comes in stock, it means there is always a deal to be done on the old model. Whilst we have them in stock, if you buy a current 2013 105 Cervelo R3 for B#1999, we will upgrade the wheels from the standard Shimano R500 to Mavic’s brilliant Cosmic Elite wheels for free – a B#400 wheel upgrade.

We have the 2013 R3 in the following sizes: 48, 51 and 58.

Monthly Newsletter – September

Cycle Art will soon be introducing a monthly newsletter that you will be able to sign up for. You will be able to receive all the latest exciting shop news, offers and industry tidbits to your mailbox. In the meantime (whilst we’re waiting on the techy people to do their thing), we’re posting the September issue here on the website. Enjoy!

Cervelo R3 Dark2014 Cervelos
Cervelo has always made some of the most desirable road bikes available, and for a short time only they have made them cheaper too. To make way for exciting new R3 and R5 models, Cervelo have introduced a limited “Dark Edition” version of their R3. “What’s so great about that?” we hear you ask. It’s not an R3. It’s an R5 disguised as an R3. Whilst the 105 equipped bike is already out of stock, you can still get hold of a SRAM Force 22 equipped Cervelo R3 (an R5 frame with an R3 sticker on) for B#2999. Bearing in mind last year’s R5 frame was B#3499, the R3 Dark is B#500 less as a full bike! Be warned though – they are selling fast and are only available in limited sizes so if you are interested, get in touch as soon as you can.

We also have a limited supply of 105 equipped Cervelo R3 bikes using last year’s R3 frameset – these are available for B#1999.

Yellow Ticket SaleYellow Ticket Sale
It’s that time of year where all the shiny new bikes are coming through, so we have a glut of 2013 bicycles to sell. Why not get yourself a bargain whilst you can! We have a range of bikes including a high end Colnago C59 Italia with a Campagnolo Record groupset and a Giant TCR Advanced SL2 with full SRAM Red. We have a range of Ridley bikes including 2 lightweight Helium road bikes both with Ultegra groupsets. We also have a few pairs of 2012 Fi’zi:k shoes on sale including some R1 Uomo down from B#299 to B#255.

Vuelta CookiesLa Vuelta a Espana 2013
With the Giro d’Italia and Le Tour de France out of the way, only 1 grand tour remains unsettled – La Vuelta a Espana. Often seen as the poorer sibling of the Italian and French offerings, with it’s sun scorched mountain climbs and white villages La Vuelta is unique and beautiful in it’s own way. It is also usually the most exciting and demanding. More often than not it is contested mainly by Spanish GC contenders but this year, American Chris Horner and Irishman Nicholas Roche are in the running for a good position as well as the usual suspects such as Purito, Valverde and company. We’d obviously prefer if either Garmin Sharp or Lotto Belisol had a GC contender so advertising our bikes would be easier but such is life!

So, why not pop up to Cycle Art, have a freshly ground Caffe Praego coffee and home baked cake and watch the race live on our widescreen TV? Even better, why not try one of our home made Vuelta cookies which are hand decorated in either the leader’s red jersey, climber’s blue polka dot jersey or sprinter’s green jersey!

Castelli winter clothingGet ready for winter with Cycle Art
No one wants to hear it, but the sad fact is winter is looming large. If you are planning on commuting by bike, training, or riding through the winter months you need to be able to see and be seen, keep warm and dry, and have the right bike for the conditions.

Cycle Art has a range of winter ready clothes from Castelli and Mavic and a large range of lights from Lezyne to ensure you are safe and comfortable when the nights draw in and weather deteriorates.

If you’re looking for the ideal winter training bike we can build up a Sabbath September or Silk Route based on your exact requirements. If you’d prefer something that can go anywhere and do anything then we have a great range of cross bikes from Ridley including the 2014 Xbow and a few 2013 models in limited sizes. If you are needing luggage, we can take you across the road to Bicycle Repair Man!
