This is a fantastic build. The S5 looks as beautiful as it is fast.

Wow... I'm definitely debadging the Madfibers if I end up buying them. Good thing they peel off easily, the demo set I'm running right now has a lot of the stickers peeling off without me touching them. I'm still not sold on the appearance of the carbon weave, but damn they're an awesome and fast wheelset.

I've uploaded an album of pictures on Flickr, link in the first post. I'm not the best photographer, but I tried to capture some of the details.

A few subtle things I noticed while photographing:
- Headtube has an hourglass shape
- Frame tapers off from the front, coming together at the edge, resembling a knife blade viewed vertically
- The huge bottom bracket bulging out from the non-drivetrain side
- Decals have a raised feeling to them, unlike the S2 which felt smooth

Toe overlap issue is gone with the new geometry, and bottles are much easier to get out of the frame, compared to the S2.

How tall are you? (if you have inseam size handy, that would be nice too). I think I'm in between the 51 and 54. Just curious as to how you fit on it. I'm used to how cannondales fit.

167 cm tall, 78 cm inseam.

The setup in the first picture is a little different now. The saddle's now on the rear hole, and it's been effectively pushed back 8 cm. The seatpost has been raised by just under 1cm, and the stem was changed from a 90mm to 110mm.

Nice machine! I was initially put off by the S5 when I saw photos but when our show got one I thought it looked a lot better in the flesh. It was too big for me but the shop guys all thought it rode pretty well. Hope you really like it.

I think you mean 8 mm! Thanks for the info. I think I might be a 54. Reach on the 54 is even less than my present bike by 7mm- and that's a 52.

I'm sad to report that this bike is done for after a t-bone accident. :(

Those Madfibers are really growing on me ... they make the best of a frame that I'm usually not entirely ecstatic about. Well done!

It's nothing short of a miracle after being t-boned by a Chrysler 300 at 30km/h, I made it out without a single scratch and just a few bruises. I'll be ready to get back on a bike tomorrow.

But anyways, my S5 will be reborn and come back badder than ever. The claim is in the insurance company's hands and my LBS is doing a fine job getting me through the process.

Here's a few new parts for the soon-to-be resurrected bike:

KCNC brakes:

Look Keo Blade 16s (will upgrade to titanium axles eventually):

Zipp Vuka Sprint handlebars:

Spoiler: An upgrade to a VWD frame may be happening... :wink:

That looks good. Did you try the 48?
