Just before the Tour de France Cervelo announced, and launched their newest aero-road bike. Aero road bikes have the challenge of being stiff and comfortable enough for long races, stable enough for cornering, and still aero enough to justify the distinction. What it seems Cervelo has done with this bike fits all of those requirements. A lot of cyclists focus on the weight of the bike, which is important, but gravity is the distant #2 force effecting speed/performance on a bike. Aerodynamic drag is the #1, and a bike that can save you up to 30 watts to stay at the same speed versus a typical road bike – is a huge advantage.
