There's quite a big gap between the chain and the cage on that bike.
So next thing is I'll try an older FD on the new frame.
This video was helpful:
Still couldn't get it to work for me so I went back to 9000 series front derailuer. No big deal as I had a spare one.
Chainline is not the problem and as i'm running GXP cranks, i can't move the crank further out to the right.
The new cable routing of the FD 9100 simply doesn't work with the S5 i think.
Good to know that it's not the crankset then! What is your solution? Did you try older FDs?
I watched that video before install, it is helpful.
I'll try to get a 6800 FD, I hope it will help.
Strange problem, as Cervelo do sell S5 with mechanical 8000 at least. (I'd think 8000 and 9100 are almost identical)

I guess Shimano tries to convince me to go the Di2 route.
As the rear shifting also worse than with 9000 on my LOOK 586 (no internal cable routing of course), I think the only real solution for modern aero frames is electronic shifting.
I used cheap shifting cables, not the polymer coated ones, perhaps they would help.
I decided that the best solution is to tilt the cage inwards, so it's not really parallel with the big ring.
I can now use every gear with no rub, but front shifting to the big ring is not perfect, as the cage that should push the chain outwards is not moving out enough. It takes a bit of time to put it on the big ring. But it works.
