The frame wasn't leaning on the table; I believe that what you are seeing is just caused by the cameras perspective.

I'm really happy with the new frame and I can't wait to get it together. I'm going to try and get it all built up tomorrow!

Haven't heard this from any other S5 owners, so must be because they were pushing for production of the VWD. Haussler has been using his for quite some time, so this must be one of the "fall through the QC crack" kind of thing


there was an s5 frame on ebay which sold last week which had this brake boss problem as well. just saying. seems like a stupid design

Here it is! Will get better pictures and a weight for you guys later. This thing is absolutely awesome I cant believe how much better it is than my Torelli. Won a road race and a crit this weekend on it, it is really fast.

Thanks guys! The brakes are a tririg omega and a SRAM red 2012 on the rear. Like the combo, it's working quite well!

I really like the 808s as well on this frame; it just doesn't look right without the deep wheels.

Just a quick question:

How did the KCNCs on the old setup jive with the Firecrest rims?

The KCNC's are really nice brakes and they work great with the zipps but they did not work very well with the Cervelo; so they got moved over to the training bike!

Wanted to post an updated picture of my bike, have changed some stuff having become unhappy with the SRAM red.

Switched to Ui2, DA7900 brakes, some ultegra training (and racing right now because of my broken zipp and crazy ohio winds) wheels, a new SRM Rotor 3d+ and a aluminum zipp SC alloy bar and -17 100mm stem. Its abit heavier like this, around 16.2lbs but its still right around 15.5lbs with my 303s.

It is a known problem (or so I have read).
