This week I'm testing the new Cervelo R5 Disc

This speed machine is the brand new Cervelo R5 Disc, and it's my latest test bike. Before I get to fitting some pedals and hitting the road, here's a quick video first look at all the key details and why this bike might be a contender.

David has worked on the road.cc tech team since July 2012. Previously he was editor of Bikemagic.com and before that staff writer at RCUK. He's a seasoned cyclist of all disciplines, from road to mountain biking, touring to cyclo-cross, he only wishes he had time to ride them all. He's mildly competitive, though he'll never admit it, and is a frequent road racer but is too lazy to do really well. He currently resides in the Cotswolds.
