.. hm, the 58cm frame would still fit my specs .. (that frame size didn't change in the geo since the previous version) .. and the pro racers will ask for a lower and longer stem soon ..

Looks great ...... but a question for all fellow owners of the “old” S5, rim brake model, who is planning to upgrade to the new S5 disc?? .......and if so, why? ...and if not, why not???

Is there some way of adding height to the stem or is there a whole range of bars with different width, reach, and height?

I'll upgrade. Already sold my 2nd gen S5. Nothing wrong with that bike, just I'm a fan of total cable integration and added aero is a plus anyway. Disc brakes... not a big fan of them, but that's the path industry has chosen. Still will have 2 rim brake bikes anyway.

No, will be sticking with my current S5.
I'm impressed by the design and the thought that has gone into making the proprietary bars less painful than the appearance would suggest.
However, having extracted the aero data and added it to my modelling (with weight difference for discs included) I get the new bike being only 3s faster for me over our 26km club races.
However, that doesn't account for the shallower drop bar being slower for me than the deep drop bar I can use on the current bike, so overall the new bike will be slower.
Of course, the new bike can use an adaptor for a normal stem, but in that configuration the performance is equal to the current bike so no point.

I would like the increased stiffness but I've never felt let down on the current bike (have topped out at 1600w)

And I really dislike disc brakes on road bikes. Nothing about the ownership experience of my gravel/training bike (which I like in every other regard) is an improvement and there are many downsides.

I anticipate some sort of climbdown over the cockpit design. Or at least the introduction of a two piece version.

The industry loved once piece cockpits for a few years, but seems to be drifting away to neatly integrated two piece solutions because of the issues you just alluded to.

They're not one piece, stem and bars are separate on the new S5.

This is a two-piece design. You can ad up to 30mm of spacers under the stem, and up to 5mm of spacers between stem and handlebar. There is also an option to tilt the bars slightly with the spacers between bar and stem.

Replying to you and Minimalist:

My mistake re: the current design.

Kind of illustrates my point about how neatly they're integrating two piece designs now, rather than using one-piece. I didn't even see that they were two separate parts!

I won't be riding it either... no way that stem is equal to my slammed -17 stem on my current S5

In the official photos, it's equal to -6 "traditional" (and probably 110mm length), however, -17 equivalent versions will be available separately as well, from 90 to 130mm.

OK Maybe I'll rethink it, but I have my current 140mm stem slammed to the bearing on my current S5 so probably still not feasible.

Edit: I'm sure there's going to be a bunch of ProTour guys demanding a 140mm or even 150mm stem

As interested as I've been in this bike, I'm having trouble getting past some of the verbiage describing it. "42 grams faster..." When did weight become a measurement of speed? If the reverse is true, could I be 5 mph lighter? Ugh.

I was hoping they would have a fit chart or at least a fit calculator like they did with the P5X. The stack and reach in 54 cm are identical in the last gen but the v- stem makes it harder to figure out how to transfer my fit from the 2nd gen to this one.

Quoted for truth. This bike is as fast as its predecessor, and no faster. Just like the P5-X...and the P5. Which is one reason why I am still on a P4.

Weren't you the one complaining about how an ee brake does not provide sufficient stopping power for someone your size?

The ownership experience notwithstanding, having disc brakes on your road bike is nice, especially when you ride that bike in a variety of conditions, especially wet and downhill / in city traffic / around cars requiring fast and frequent stops with laser sharp modulation.
