Thanks to all that replied. I had just looked through the httr code and sure enough for a .csv mime time it calls readr::read_csv(). The httr::content docs suggest not using automatic parsing in a package, rather to determine mime type and parse yourself and Ben's suggestion also works if I do:
junk <- readr::read_csv(r1$content, col_types = cols())
Perfect. Using httr rather than putting the url in any of the read.csv or read_csv type code allows me greater control if the request fails.
