Thanks for the information. The fitting at my LBS was pretty thorough. (took almost 2 hours) I spent so much time on trainer I was starting to sweat some! Yea, the size is 61 cm. My old bike was a 58cm. I did not think I would notice the difference but I did.
I went for my first ride (after the initial quick one) when I got home from out of town today and it was awesome! The difference was remarkable. I always used to feel rides in my shoulders a little. Not a hurt, but I knew they were strained.
Today after 15+ miles, hardly noticed. (I do have to get used to the seat though)
Love the ride! I really thought that carbon could not make that much of a difference, but I was wrong.
Hardly felt the road with this bike that I would feel significantly with my Sequoia.
Not quite sure about the Apex yet. I have 105's on my Sequoia and the Apex is quite different. Wasn't real smooth today but mostly because I am not used to it. (is a little noisier too, but not horrible)
I still need to do pics.
Thanks to all for support and comments.
