Heres my baby. 15.5lbs with power and clinchers. I don't think I will make any change in the near future. I got rid of the Cervelo handlebar after trying it out for a month - I wasn't a fan.

Beautiful!
I have S5 but one model behind this. Fastest bike ever!

But...., you need high profile wheels!

Yeah S5s should always have high profile wheels. 50mm minimum. They look odd with shallow wheels.

the green color is very nice for the black frame.

The S5 is growing on me more and more and this is a great example. Into the green sidewalls!

The Pave's are my favourite spring/fall/training camp tire. They just seem to last very well for me. I can't get them anymore (at a reasonable price), so I'm switching back to GP4000 when these wear.

I hope you don't mind... Can I ask a couple of questions?

What saddle height do you have?

How much saddle to handlebar drop do you have?

How tall are you? What inseam?

Thanks!

That is really helpful. I am 5'10 as well, but with a 83cm inseam and a saddle height of 73,5cm.

The information gives me a good point of reference to imagine the bike set up for me.

I like the Pave's but once I finish these (and my 1 spare) I'm going to go to Gp4000 or Turbo cottons.
