mmm the bike i was going to get orginally.. never down the track.. howis the ride? does it cut the wind as many says?

After riding a malvern star for three years, I feel like I'm cheating riding this bike.
The malvern star was great when I first started riding, but the S5 is in a very different league.
Im relatively light, so I needed help more in the flats than I do on the hills. The S5 is more than what I expected.
I did a TTT yesterday with a pb and it felt some what easy :shock: !

That's exactly what the insurance company told me...and everyone else :roll:
Only problem is that i'll have to install a tow bar to suit the Thule hitch mount carrier.

I'm also designing an early warning system in my driveway. It consists of a sensor light that peers over the car to detect bikes on the roof and a red flood light. Maybe police lights and siren too 8)



Apparently there are iPhone apps to alert you when you get home. I have never used them, just heard about it on the Fredcast.

You don't need to download an app. There's a Notifications app included on the phone which allows you to set a reminder by time or location.

I can find Look 21 times on that bike not including the bidon, possibly a world record. Awesome bike by the way schroeds.

Make that 23, I forgot the pedals.
