How does it ride?


used it yesterday for the first time and I'm impressed, always ride on an S3 bike, but the R5 really is a lot stiffer on the front so when you accelerate standing on the pedals it's like an arrow ...

Great selection of parts, but the white LWs are hideous.
A light bike does replace good fitness.

will take a picture with my black GEN III LW's one of these days (it's raining here right now)
I think the white LW's are fine in this bike, otherwise it will be too black, we'll see, the pictures and reactions will tell !

I think the white LWs look great on this bike, I have no idea why people dont like them. It breaks up all the black, only thing I can say bad about them is I dont have a set for my bike.

Looks much better.

So you've raised the front end quite a bit? (added spacers and switched from a -17deg stem)

bought a 56 instead of the 58 I had before :thumbup:
A 130mm stem and "no" spacers, just a high cap.
