Cervelo P(3)X customization
Quote | Reply
I am looking for a new bike.
Now I am pretty sure it could be a Cervelo PX
Lots of storage, I like the looks. Disc brakes.
The only thing I cant figure out is what can be customized with the cockpit. A one piece extension like speedbar is not possible??

What other things did you modify?

I am an owner of a P3X and love it (first proper race coming up on it). Not sure that the cockpit is that easy to customise. Certainly arm rests are easy, the Cervelo ones are nice put I wanted something that felt more locked in and changed over to some Profile Design ones (note the tri-rig arm rests would need to be re-drilled to fit which is a bit iffy....no matching bolt pattern). You can obviously change the extensions to whatever you like that will fit the standard diameter...I just run the stock ski bend extensions at the moment....they are easy to tilt so no stress there. 99% sure that speedbar would not work.

I am super happy with the bike. It is a tad porky weight wise but my races are all on pretty flat courses otherwise I can go back to my P3 if needed. I changed the cranks to shorter DA cranks, added my Favero pedals, ceramic speed OSPW system, changed the saddle, added my bottle cages.....very very happy. Bank balance not so happy. Wife yet to find out.

you have to purchase the di2 junction box that fits an extension end and get new extentions.

the riser bar install on the P5D in this link is applicable to what youre asking.

The question I have is why would you want to? At the moment the junction box is well hidden within its own cavity/box behind the cockpit. The downsides of this are that it can be a slight pain to get to for charging and the plastic enclosure is prone to breaking...mine has twice. You can "easily" re-wire things so you switch to the bar end A-junction box in the newer road bike Di2 systems...I would have to check my bike for how much clearance you would have to insert the charging cable though.

You could stick the P5 basebar on, idk if that's an upgrade or not though. Maybe extension shape to your preferred shape or elbow cups/pads to your preferred cup/pad shape.

I think the areas I'd look to optimize the bike would be maybe putting in a Hawk BB and pulleys for drag reduction, and if you really want to save another, at most 1.5w, putting on an oversized pulley.

That's the plan for when I get my P3x, although it already has the P5x basebars on it. I'll swap the ceramic BB on it for a hawk racing BB. Might change to a different PM as well.

On the whole these bikes are pretty much, put on your race wheels and go ready.

i dunno how youre doing it, but if you stick something into the cavity and press the clip from the inside back towards the bento it comes off quite easily. i scratched my head a lot and thought i was going to break it till i figured that out.

You cannot set the ex11 base bar on the PX. Or did you mean P5X?

if you swap out the ceramicspeed BB that's in there I will not deliver it to you. And the Quarq is the best PM.

I've always said there were very few bikes currently (or even soon to be) available that would benefit me switching from the plasma. The P3X is the one bike that could and did get me to switch.

Now that's not to say there aren't other bikes that are faster than the plasma. Yet if you do a few things to the plasma 3, you can roll into any 70.3 or IM and be extremely confident that <5% of people in your age group (or the pro field if you're racing pro) have bikes faster than yours.

The real question is do I sell the plasma or hang it on the wall over the fireplace? I've heard art is a good investment.

We have an adapter for a PX/P3X/P5 Disc (using the EX10 monopost) to mount our Ascalon extensions. I did an install on a P5 disc today, pics below
