I'm not familiar with the Cervelo line, I thought the R series was more of a race geometry than endurance. For Trek the Endurance model is the Domane, Spesh is the Roubaix. The Emonda S5 is 4 series...

I almost went for the Paradigm's this weekend, one of the guys at the shop has them on his SL6. The hubs are DT Swiss which are good hubs. Good reviews on the wheelset. I opted though for the Aura 5,...

Sounds like a good upgrade from my 510, I didn't like the 520 since it wasn't touch screen. I'll eventually upgrade but I'm going to wait and let Garmin work out the bugs that WILL be there. Also, I...
