Just built up with my Enve 45 clinchers and 2013 SRAM Red. Including some Cro Mo Speedplay Zeros and bottlecages it weighs in at 6.88kg in a 56cm.Image

Nicely build.
Think looks better with the full black stem like the German guys'.
What about a better photo ?

I'll get a better photo up on the weekend. Stem came with the frameset. When I'm happy with the position I'll think about a stealth one - although it does match the red on the ergonova bars and under the saddle. The cages are Arundel Dave O and the saddle is a Specialized Romin with the Ti rails.

Only the one ride on it so far and its very firm ride without being harsh. Handling is fairly similar to my other bike - Tarmac SL3.

I would match a enve stem and bars to those wheels, but it looks damn good the way it is now. Did you get a chance to weigh the frame? How do you like the S-5?

Looks good! I'd vote to stick with the 3T stem you've got or the stealth version - the ENVE stem is fugly.

Agree - have seen the Enve stem and I'm not a fan of it nor any other carbon stem I've seen so far. Will stick with the 3T for now.

Anyway I had it out for a flat, fast bunch ride this morning. About 15 guys rolling turns between 40-50kph over 30kms as part of a 60km ride.

Impressions are:
+ves
- Very direct power transmission
- When you're out in the wind it feels like less effort than my old bike
- Copes with the small bumps and generally rolls well
- Steering is similar to the SL3 but feels a lot firmer through the fork and head tube
- I like the Rotor cranks, better than the SRAM Red on my other bike

-ves
- Inside of ankles brush the chainstays now and then, cos they are huge
- Seatpost slipped about 3-4mm when I hit a big bump. Have torqued up to the recommended 8nm and will monitor
- You really feel the big hits as the frame just transmits these
- Couple of RD half shift issues, maybe me or just the cables settling

Yet to try it out on a climb of any great length - hopefully this weekend so I can really see if my position is correct

The frame with all the fittings was 980g - which is pretty good for an aero frame

Nice bike! Btw you can remove the logo on the stem with acetone.

I haven't had any issue with mine, and the newly redesigned S5 is supposed to have more clearance and fit 25mm tires too.
