We've been lucky enough to see the Cervelo P4 in the flesh now, and it certainly looks like it's going fast even when it's just sitting on the stand. Cervelo were also keen to show us the new S3, which is also brand new but has been a bit lost in the P4's wake. It borrows bits of the P3 and R3-SL, and also has internal cable routing and aero chainstays. The P4 has, as we've said, got a lot to prove, coming from the line of top machines that it does. and the good news is that the other bikes in that line are still available, and a lot cheaper. In fact, you can have a P2-C frame for just £1500, less than half the price of a P4. If you're in the market for a new TT frame and you can't afford the new benchmanrk, then we reckon that the P2 represents pretty good value, and it's mighty quick to boot. For more cycle show pics check out our Cycle 08 gallery - we will be posting pictures throughout the day and adding more details to the captions too.
