Man that's a wild position for a big guy ! Do you race? Triathlons? How far is your seat setback behind the BB?

Don't race for self preservation :-)

The aggressive position isn't something I've gone after purposely, but just one that's evolved in finding my most comfortable position. It's still evolving as my saddle still needs to gradually go up another 20mm to be perfect... I hope I don't run out of post!

As for setback, I haven't specifically measured, but it's not far now.... I used much more setback when I was sitting lower...

is your torso short in comparison to your legs? Your setback must be close to zero - which is a bit non-standard for a tall fella.

Spot on... Long legs, short torso n long arms... The queer S5 geometry makes it all seem a little more extreme than it is... My setup looked relatively pro on my old S3! Lol

I've just bought a 2014 S3 & i'm looking for some race wheels. Any suggestions? I must admit those ENVE's on the S5 look mighty handsome!

I've got three different sets of FFWD wheels and have been very happy with them. I think they are great value for the quality of wheel you get.

As long as they aren't zipp u will be right! Good rims, crap hubs...

Since buying some Enves, I've been very impressed. A lot of the ride quality comes down to the hubs used however. I have some Chris king R45s on one set, and some with dt swiss 240s, and the difference is quite noticable. The 240s are ok, but R45s are very sweet.
