Velonews' 2018 Bike of Year
The new 2018 R Series disc bikes have arrived!
We were concerned Cervelo might fix something that wasn't broken, but the result is that they just improved on one of the greatest bikes ever, and added the best disc brakes on the market. That sounds pretty bold, but anyone who has been in our store knows that the R5 has been one of our favorites, and a customer favorite, for years. In many ways, it's our "benchmark bike."
