June edition of ProCycling had a review by Chris Boardman who admittedly was biased against Cannondales. His review was extremely favorable.

Yes I am lucky enough to own one. I previously had a 2001 R2000 Si which unfortunately got stolen. The R5000 Si is an amazing bike. How good is it ???? Basically it flatters the rider. After being off my bike for about a month losing fitness and adding weight I took the R5000 for its first outing on my normal training ride expecting to struggle and suffer but it was incredible,I posted my fastest time ever for my ride. I would come up to short climbs where I would have struggled before and breezed over them. It feels as if every drop of energy you have is being transferred to the bike. The ride is extremely comfortable and you just feel part of the machine. I have only had it for a few weeks now but it brings a smile to my face every time I ride it.
Buy it and enjoy!!!

I own the Canny Black Lightning, which is essentially the same bike. I love it. It is the best bike I have owned. My previous is a Canny R4000si which I loved, this is better!
