Seems as though they'll be hitting several price points within the TT/ Tri world as well as further refinement of their road line (they dabbled with MTBs at one point).

Dunno for sure, but in a twist of irony, my '00 P2K was actually built in the US, for this Canadian company... wonder where this new crop of Cervelos will be built (it would be hard to imagine that they did not have a far east connection)?

How do you feel the One will fare with the Dual (variable effective top tube) just above it?

Now that they've returned to carbon fiber... do you thing a full aero CF is in their future?

With the exposure they're likely to receive with their rigs under CSC Tiscali, there is potential... for great success or great failure (a bridge too far). This could catapult the Canadian maker from "that triathalon company" to a real pain to the Big Three both in the US and abroad...

We abide.

Remain In Light.

Let's hope they keep the manufacturing around here. We could all use the business, it is just to get the quality/volume and Capital Investment factors in line.

I really like what they are doing with steel road bikes. I ride a Lemond Zurich, and I think a custom Cervelo Renaissance is the only mount around that could make me consider another bike. BTW, I'll try to visit them in TO sometime, post pictures!

They also have a factory team riding Cat 1-4 races in Ontario, which is a very nice thing for them to do in our community.
Renaissance... is... gone!hayaku

I guess the market won't be there for an expencive steel frame when you can get an expencive Carbon frame instead.

I saw in the news that the team will be riding Soloists and Prodigys and was surprised that they weren't looking at the Renaissance.

Looks like you'll be able to save some money and stick with your Zurich. Maybe you could pick one up cheap when you visit though...

Yeeesh.. Well, hope the Prodigy comes in 03. (nm)Spunout

it (or some steel bike) will be back..dotkaye

Gerard Vroomen posted on slowtwitch.com to say they have plans for another steel bike, so it might be back..
That's because the Prodigy is more than a Prodigykenyee

The Prodigy has grown up.

Gerard replied to me in an email, so I'm not sure how much of it is public. Let's just say I wouldn't mind getting a Prodigy next year (besides the paint job being much sexier :-)
Wow, no Renaissance.... (nm)joekm

an abomination by the UCI... Outside of concepts and builds from smaller frame makers, we'll most likely not see this type of "innovation" for the rest of our lifetimes (I appreciate placing the burden of performance on the cyclist, but, as a species, we love to tinker).

We abide.

Remain In Light.
