    Re: 2011 S5

    The S5 fits all wheels we are aware of including Firecrest and other modern wide wheels.

    sausskross:
    Anybody an idea about the mounting of the rearbrake ?

    Looks like a P3 style plate?

     

    Correct, rear brake attaches to a separate metal plate which is then bolted to the frame.

    The benefit is that the rear wheel cutout can stay close to the tire for better aerodynamics.

    Re: 2011 S5-strange specs

    The 25 or better yet 27 cog are for nasty hills on spring/winter rides..... Guys under 40 can ride the 21 or 23 and feel manly. I prefer happy knees year round...

    Re: 2011 S5

    Thanks for your answer Damon. I did notice them, but didn't really know what to make of them either. No P.Eng here. It just looks like it would be really rigid if you know what I mean. Horses for courses I guess I don't expect this to be ridden in the spring classics anyway. If you say it's the same as the S3 I have no doubts. I'd love to see Ryder podium on it, an R5, or whatever gets him across the line at the end of July. :) PS: Factory responses are what continues to make this forum great....

    In the S5 white paper, it states that the weight with all the naughty bits(paint, hardware, etc) for a size 54 VWD edition. The same size S3 is 1070 grams.

    Re: 2011 S5

    So Damon if 25mm rubber is the max one can use, how does the 26.5mm rim width of the Zipp firecrest range fit without an issue?

    Hi Mino,

    We designed the clearances tight for good aerodynamics, and every "23mm" tire we measured fits no problem. So if you're running 23s no worries.

    Also lateral clearance is plenty for wide tires and rims.

    It's only with wider tires that radial clearance (to the seat tube cut out, or to the underside of the fork crown) can potentialy be a limiter.

    damon_rinard:

    Hi Redcorn,

    The S5 and S3 have the same vertical compliance. Others havae also said it, and our testing confirms it, that most of the vertical complaince in a bike isn't in the frame - the tires are the biggest part of vertical compliance. Consider your tire pressure carefully!

    As you probably have read elsewhere by now the price difference between S3 and S5 is explained by the three levels of the S5. The other levels will be added to the web site soon.

    Thanks for the response and it is a relief to see that the vertical compliance was still thought of. I did not realize there were three types of S5 models so the pricing will be listed accordingly makes sense thanks for responding.

    Oh boy. Cervelo have put up an alternative colour way - black with grey/blue stripes on the UK page. I'm now in love.

    If the frame and fork will take Vittoria Open Pave 24s then I'm going to have to talk to the bank manager...

    ...maybe not the wife, though, :o ;)

    Exactly. This is one of the many reasons why I am glad to own Cervelo's. Thanks Damon and Matt.

    Re: 2011 S5

    So I just put some 25mm Gatorskins on my Team S5 for Spring Classics, possibly to include the Pro Battenkill race next weekend. Everything fits in fine and seems to fit. I seem to remember someone saying you should be able to slide a credit card between the frame and the rear wheel which means there is enough clearance. I can definitely do this quite easily with my frame so would you have any concerns? I am running the Powertap Cyclops rims at 23mm wide if that helps, Thanks
