Very, very nice. And the weight isn't too shabby either.

How does it ride?


used it yesterday for the first time and I'm impressed, always ride on an S3 bike, but the R5 really is a lot stiffer on the front so when you accelerate standing on the pedals it's like an arrow ...

Great selection of parts, but the white LWs are hideous.

will take a picture with my black GEN III LW's one of these days (it's raining here right now)
I think the white LW's are fine in this bike, otherwise it will be too black, we'll see, the pictures and reactions will tell !

I think the white LWs look great on this bike, I have no idea why people dont like them. It breaks up all the black, only thing I can say bad about them is I dont have a set for my bike.

Looks much better.

So you've raised the front end quite a bit? (added spacers and switched from a -17deg stem)

bought a 56 instead of the 58 I had before :thumbup:
A 130mm stem and "no" spacers, just a high cap.
