Build list:
-Cervélo S2 2012 frameset, size 56
-Wheels: Mavic R-Sys SLR, Mavic CC SLR, Shimano RS61
-Groupset: Shimano Dura-Ace 9000 11spd
-Cockpit: Deda Elementi Z100
-Pedals Look Keo Blade Ti

The Cervélo S2 frame is not the lightest and certainly not the stiffest (front-end) aero bike but comfort is very nice.
I've chosen the Mavic wheels as the were 11spd compatible, I like their looks and the braking is very good.
After I've been riding Sram Force and Red, Campagnolo Record, Dura-Ace 7900 and Dura-Ace 7900 DI2, the new Dura-Ace 9000 is the best ever.
The Japanese leave Campagnolo far behind. I might even say front shifting is as fast and easy as a DI2 groupset.
An dI think the Japanse developped the best cable sin the world. Shifting and braking is so smooth.

I find it especially nice with r-sys (love low profile rims).

Very nice build :thumbup: The R-Sys wheels actually look pretty nice on an aero frame. This is just me nitpicking but the crank looks a bit out of place, aesthetically speaking of course, and I could never get over the look of the cable routing in the front where they stick out over the stem and enter on the top tube. :noidea: Regardless, great build! Enjoy it!

Funny with the R-sys, must be one of the least aero wheels every on one of classic aero frames of our times. I still think the S2 looks better than pretty much everyone's aero frame and aside from the stiffness is probably just as good or better. Love the black/red paint on that one too.

What's your saddle height/setback/saddle-bar drop/ saddle bar distance?

Thank you for your comments.

Regarding the crank, I was thinking of putting on a Rotor 3D and try Rotor chainrings.
On the other hand the new Dura-Ace 11spd crank is so special. It shows you are riding an 11spd Dura-Ace equipped bike
and that's nice to show off ;-)

Saddle height is 77cm center BB - top saddle.
Distance between tip saddle and center handlebar is 55cm.

I'm working on an 11spd DI2 Dura-Ace equipped Kuota bike too...
