still the same height, I have a problem with the seat post slipping on the s5,all the pictures from my ride where taken halfway of my daily route and always carry an allen wrench with me all the time to adjust the height of the post. just last sunday that actually applied a carbon paste to the seatpost and work really well. the post never move on a 37 mile ride.

nismosr,

Nice build! What brake/shifter lines are you using?

I thought they looked like Aican Bungarus but looking closer at it, I might be wrong. Thanks

Nice bike.
I have an S5 as well - love it.

I am thinking about getting a speed needle - however i am worried that the oval rails will not fit in the cervelo seat post. Any input on this?

Get yourself an oval clamp. Cervelo is producing them now.

yes they do, but I opted for the Ritchey 1 bolt system clamp for $15 works really well.

I had this bike for 1.5yrs now and I must say it's no only for speed but this baby climbs like a mountain goat. Did a group ride yesterday 52miles and 6800ft. S5 has the 808/404 combo and I weigh that morning about 198lbs. slow but I'm impressed with the bike and with myself. hehehe
