Thanks. I am 5' 10.5" (179cm). I don't know my measured inseam but I purchase slacks (not jeans) with an inseam of 32" (81.3cm). I really like the ride of the R5. It seems stiff and efficient without being harsh. It also handles very well, that is, a good balance between too twitchy and too sluggish.

I did not weight the frame or fork when they arrived. You might want to check out em3's postings about his R5. He lists the weights for the frame and fork of his size 54.

Enjoy your ride.
Thanks for the kind words.
As far as the Ti chain... the shifting is very good. It may be a bit noisier than the Dura Ace chain but that may be due to the SRAM Red cassette as well. I have only had the Ti chain on for about the last 500 miles. I plan to use my chain checker at 1000 miles and then every 500 after that. I don't expect the chain to last as long as steel chains or at least, that is what I have been led to believe.
