I first saw the Cervelo S5 last year November. WHAT A BIKE!
I’ve been ogling it whenever I get a chance since. 2 weeks ago I got bikejacked (wrote a whole post about that, but never clicked publish, way too morbid). Luckily I was insured, and luckily I found some sympathetic people in the industry willing to give me some discount and advice on how to get this bike within my current budget.
I picked up the SRAM Red groupset today, with an ITM handlebar and stem (in white). Tomorrow I pick up the frame and can then start building, hopefully having everything ready for the Saturday morning ride. For now I’ll have to use my race wheels, but will get a new set of training wheels soon.
