    Also I was mistaken, Carlos Sastre did not win the tour on this bike, he rode an R5. I was a little thrown off by the Team CSC logo on the 2nd tier frame.

    You could try scooting your heelpiece forward by a mm. I measured the plastic spacer that comes with the Crests and it's 5mm thick, and the directions specify a 4mm gap at the heel.

    completely disagree. while its not technical, the rocky sections wear on you over the many miles and a full sus is definitely more efficient, as evidenced that most FKTs are set on them.
