After what felt like an eternity waiting for '17 stock to come in for my size I picked up my latest bike on Saturday, this thing is amazing. I've always had a soft spot for the S5 frames, and I am loving the current red/black paint they have going. parts of the frame have a matte finish while other sections like the down tube/forks have a gloss finish which looks sensational.
I was hoping to get a set of the new C60 wheels as they have more of a stealthy finish, but the C75s still look great, although a tad overkill possibly.
I've never had a power meter before also so this will be a new experience for me, i've used power from my Tacx Bushido Smart with Trainerroad so it will be interesting to see what numbers i'm making out on the road compared to on the trainer. I'm still messing around with the Head unit getting everything set up but I took the bike out yesterday for a spin and came back 3 hrs later with a massive grin on my face, it feels great to ride! I need to get it weighed which I will do probably this weekend, I doubt it will be anything close to lightweight however the way it is, but oh well!
I apologize in advance for the cruddy garage pics, I will take some nicer ones this weekend, weather permitting.

Wow, that looks pro. What a drop for an aero position. Fast looking bike and great matching build.

Thanks guys! I removed the decals off the stem last night as I wasn't much of a fan of the white, all matches a bit nicer now.

Yes, wow indeed! Aero bikes deserve aero wheels and an aggressive wind-cheating position.

Congrats on your sweet new ride. Patience is a virtue (but I wouldn't know!).

I haven't as yet tested the power meter, I've only played around with it pairing up the sensors etc inside. I'll check it out over the weekend and see how it goes!

Congrats! Think the C75's look perfect on it. S5 really is the sort of frame shape that looks class with wheels as deep as you can handle.
