I'm 5' 6" and weigh 137. I found the R3's ride to be stiff and jarring, but it's a fast bike. The 5.5 pro is going to be a more refined ride, and I doubt you'll give up anything in speed. Can't comment on the S2 - no experience.

Fit matter most, so IMO that's where the priority should be. Also, considering the types of bikes you're interested in, I'd suggest giving the Spec Tarmac a look.

S2 fastest due to Aero and not very compliant. R3 stiffer than Madone and climbs better. Madone smoother. You ride. You decide.
