I want one. Period. I don't even race TT's, but I think I would start. I have visions of flying across the Maryland countryside at 28mph.... I'm thinking some Zipp 909's, Oval research carbon wings, and '04 Campy Record would round out the package quite nicely...

Now all I need is not to be broke :(

I especially like the 'bullet holes' in the seat tube, that was a nice touch!

would not be cool on that bike!
Although every country we were fighting back then now makes the best components!
My opinion of Cervello has gone upChainstay

I sort of turn my nose up at tri-bikes so Cervelo isn't my favourite, Nevertheless the stylin on that is soooo cewl.
What velodrome will you use it at?hrv

Looks like Larssyn Staley's track bike, a junior who hails from Oregon (where I live) and who won the Junior World Track Championships in the points race in August.

An awesome bike for an awesome athlete!

It's the P3...DrPete

but the track version is pretty similar. This is actually the TT ride that the CSC team used this year. So, also... awesome bikes for awesome athletes...

And I'm not an awesome athlete, but I want one. :)
Correction! That's not the P3!DrPete

And since this particular frame has "Larssyn" on the top tube, I think this is the track bike to which you refer.... the absence of any cable routing and brake attachment points is a little hint too, I guess. Duh....

OK, so I want the P3, with a similar paint job... :)
I'm smoking crack--It is the P3...DrPete

You can see the cable routing points on the frame. So maybe it was still used for track.

Still want one.

Well, so much for my first shot at being a member of the bike cognoscenti!

Just started riding a single speed, soon to be fixed gear, been looking at track bikes and all I saw were the horizontal dropouts. Now I know. I wouldn't dream of using that bike in a time trial because it would look doubly bad to come in close to last on that bike!

Was at a race and Larssyn had just gotten back from the Worlds and did a ceremonial lap with the rainbow jersey on. Oregon is very proud of her!

Still may be Larssyn's frame...DrPete

This may still have been used for track racing, because Cervelo no longer manufactures a P3 track model. It may have just never had derailleurs and brakes installed. The top tube still says "Larssyn," and this is a one-off paint job, so it may still be her bike.

I still want one. :)

Of course it's Larssyen's bike, she doesn't race track exclusively. It is her TT bike.

Notice the rear wheel. She flatted her disc and had to ride for quite a while with the flat until she was able to get a replacement. Still finished 2nd, 21 seconds back. Could have won, most likely.
Indeed & Here She is racing it :)gray8110

I think that is one tacky looking frame, IMHO.
