I'm not really the best guy to give out review, I build them and ride them. Although this is not my first Cervelo R series, back in 2010 I bought my first Cervelo a used 2008 R3 build it up and first ride on that frame put a smile on face comparing it to my Time Edge First and my China Wilier Frame. difference is night and day. then after a year of riding sold it and got another R3 2010 frame. same result.R5 is stiffer than the R3 comfortable and no effort on a short climb and stable descending.

my old 2008 CSC R3
