This says a lot more to me than any wind tunnel data. Real world evaluation of the frames.

I know this is about the propel but a lot of talk has been about the S5.

Only buy an S5 if you have terrible flexibility and ride in a straight line.


The S5 is easily the worst handling bike I have ever ridden. It was impossible to get my position on it due to the overly tall Cervelo headtube. (I didnt buy it, I rented it while on Holiday and put several hundred miles on it). It just GOES in a straight line just like a TT bike. You can really motor in the straights. However, It does nothing else well. Turn, climb, nothing else.
