I have an evo but can't stop myself looking at new frames! Was thinking about cervelo bit the BB standard really restricts the options on light cranks.

May seem a bit sad but one thing on the evo is that it doesn't have internal routing on the gears.

That said, if I were to change now, I would probably go for the AX lightness evo vial.

The R5 has the same stack and reach as the Soloist so I'm be able to match the exact same position directly.

Just for anyone else who sees that, the Soloist and R5 do not have the same stack and reach. In your 48 they're only about 5mm different, by the time you get to a 58 they're out by 25mm.

Thanks for the highlight.

As easily understood I was referring to the size 48, and in this case 3 and 1mm respectively in stack and reach is something that can be considered "equal".
