Well, I just bought one too. Have been riding approx 250 miles on it, and no problems so far. The CAAD5 is a nice, stiff frame, you can accelerate like crazy. I love the paintjob, and the components seem to work too. I will probably upgrade to ultegra as needed. I think the frame is worth that.

i guess 'o3 r600 is the caad5. I recently got the '03 r1000 w/caad7 frame. I was actually shocked at how smooth the ride was since my old bike was steel. The caad7 is suppose to have a little lower bb than a caad5, but have not checked this out. Again I could not feel any harshness at all unless on a real rough road which vibs steel too. Extra stiff and with no flex was also an immediate hit. A recent 55 mile mtn road ride was assumely sweet on this bike! Enjoy yours.
