After a over a year on nothing but titanium and steel (Mosaic RT-2 and Stinner Gibraltar), I started to really miss carbon. So I decided to sell the Stinner, as it was too similar to my Mosaic which did everything better in my opinion. I was leaning towards the S-Works Venge, which I got to spend a few weeks on. It was an awesome bike, very much like an aero Tarmac, but living in Toronto, weight isn't too important. So I went with the most aero option, the Cervelo S5 Disc.

I've had it all summer and without any real surprise, the bike is very fast. However, the bike is also very comfy. Not sure how much can be attributed to the tubeless 28mm Conti GP5000 tires, but it feels comparable to most race non-aero bikes I've ridden (SW Tarmac SL6, Cervelo R5, BMC SLR01). Basically, I'm trying to say I absolutely love this bike.

Here's a full list of the build:

- Cervelo S5 Disc Frameset 54cm
- Cervelo AB08 Handlebar 42cm
- Cervelo CS28 V-Stem 110mm
- Specialized Power Expert Saddle 155mm (to be replaced with S-Works)
- Shimano Dura-Ace 9170 Di2 Groupset
- Shimano Dura-Ace 9100 11-28T Cassette
- Shimano Dura-Ace 9100 172.5 Crankset 52/36
- LOOK Keo 2 Blade Pedals
- 2017 ENVE SES 5.6 Tubeless
- DT Swiss 240 Disc Hubs
- Continental GP5000TL 28mm
- Supacaz Bar Tape
- S-Works Carbon Rib Cages
- Cervelo BBright Connect 24x90 Bottom Backet
- Barfly Cervelo Garmin Mount
- Garmin Edge 530

Weight - 17.2lb or 7.8kg

Pretty damn tasty, what's the ability to adjust stem angles and drop etc on these?

You can put spacers under the stem, but in that config it looks hideous so if choosing this bike, better be sure you are fine with factory-stack values it offers.
Other than that, it is blazing fast, 35+ kph on sub 200W no problem.

Finally weighed it and it surprisingly came in at 17.2lb. It definitely feels much lighter than the number.
It's been an awesome rig, but there will be some changes coming over the next little bit!

Nice WOB pic! Glad to hear you love this bike, I've been looking at aero bikes again lately and keep coming back to the S5.
