At first ride i had to stop and recheck the bike computer because i was crusing at 23m/hr effortless. Very smooth, responsive, comfortable bike.
I've put 2,000 miles on this bike in five months,riden in two races and placed better than I had antiicpated both times. The bike is light responsive and puts my effort to the road effectively. Quality mid level components and above average wheel set, with a superb frame make for efficiency that leaves it all on the rider!The only drawback to this bike (for me) was the seat and it's EXTREME lack of comfort.
After owning this bike for a year, it still feels brand new. Even after a crash on PCH the carbon is still in great shape, no cracks with minimal clear coat damage. Shifts great with the newer 105's. Given the carbon frame, Shimano 105 5700 components and FSA BB30 crankset; it is worth it. Pick your favorite saddle/tires and you are set.
I use my 2011 F5 for training and racing, it is fairly light and has pretty good components for this price range
