that should be the 2014 with the grey/silver color scheme. There were two R3s at this point, this silver R3 and new gen R3 with higher spec parts and RCa style tubes. Then the R2 inherited the older R3 frame,neonic wrote: ↑May 2nd, 2017 9:42 amhttp://www.wheelsofbloor.com/specials/r ... elo/r3-105
Not a major concern, but it seems it's the 2014 version (or even 2013?)? on a quick search (didn't check muuuch on this), from 2015 I can't see any R3 with 105 group, all starting with Ultegra, wheel set as well. I think current ones are using Mavics, 2015 was Fulcrum?
but yeah, I would choose a Cervelo over a Miele as well, but I'm not sure if I'm ready to throw 1500 on my first road bike haha. my overall budget was 1,000. I'm stretching to 1.2K if I can get Carbon fibre frame set. Also it seems that from 2016 Tiagra had a super upgrade, I wouldn't be surprised if it's better than 2013-2014's 105
In the end, if the bike is in mint shape and fully warrantied, it's still a good deal. I'm sure some people are probably selling their used ones for that much.
But of course, if it's out of budget, oh well. If you do intend to do some serious road biking, it would be worth the extra cost IMO.
