I did a shake down on the Cervelo RS with my gear today and my impressions are good. Climbing was fun and the bike is very comfortable. I had to shift the saddle back more that I wanted so that I could fit my Bagman support on the rails so I'll change out the 3T seat post for another one I have. I also changed the rather low spoke count Shimano R-500 wheels the bike came with for some 32 spoke Mavic-Open Pros. I plan to do a 2 week tour on the Cervelo RS this summer.
