Wheels Wheels Wheels.. That was my first upgrade. I have a older 105 group with no real issues. If your stock wheels are nice spinners, I would with a carbon seat post. Great article on Aluminum bikes in the new April issue of Bicycling Magazine, page 38. "Call It a Comeback"

The steerer looks like it could do with a good couple of inches off.
Cervelo S5 Ultegra Di2.

It definitely could, being my first road bike I have been holding off until I had the handlebars adjusted and at a comfortable level before cutting off any excess steerer, getting it chopped in the next week or so!

He he ,another SR01 owner here- had it since november last year. It certainly is an exciting bike to ride. I'm about to upgrade my wheels having just shafted the spokes on the rear wheel with a chain drop from the large cassette sprocket. I'm having it trued but the Shimano 501s can become spares. I'm think Mavic Ksyrium equipes for a start.
Wheels always come at the top rank of upgrades to make a difference if you google about.

Looks 80% better with those deep sections on.
the deeper the section the deeper the pleasure.

I finally manned up and bought a double chainset for her...having been left wanting for a bigger gear than a 50-11 chasing a breakaway down a descent on Sunday I figured I may as well splash out and upgrade from my 50/34 105 to a 53/39 ultegra while I'm at it...it looks HUUUGE on the bike compared to the puny 50t!

Don't mind the dirt and lack of deep sections, I was just in from a test ride...and yeah I know, still need to get the steerer tube chopped!

8) that is one really nice bike. I'm currently building up a bmc myself and cannot wait until its completed (however long that may be). Do you use the tubs for racing only and how do you find them overall? I'm considering a similar wheel upgrade.

Yeah only use the tubs for racing, though I'm hoping to have a set of racing clinchers built up soon enough. To be honest, I don't FEEL much difference between them and my training wheels, but I've not really looked at the numbers to compare...I'm just assuming the are faster and using them to get my moneys worth out of them :lol:

I always assumed that my bike was a heavy lump, maybe about 10kgs, thanks to its 60cm aluminium frame.

Well, curiosity finally got the better of me and I decided to weigh it. I didn't trust the first result, so I tried it again, and again. According to my digital scales, it's coming in at ~8.5kgs! Now I'm not massively worried about weight, but I was definitely a little surprised! It's another fear hundred grams lighter with my race wheels on too! I better start thinking up new excuses as to why I'm slow going uphill :wink:

Upgrades from standard configuration;
FSA K-Force Handlebars
KCNC SC-Wing stem
Fizik Arione CX Kium saddle
Ultegra 6700 chainset

My 57mm is weighing out at 9 kgs, and I'm still running heavy ti SPD's mtb pedals and a heaver WTB five seat. I once weighed out a factory Carbon Roadracer at 7.75kgs. I couldn't justify the $3000 sale price for the carbon variant, when I paid $500 for the streetracer frameset and just transferred my 105 group over. Still loving this bike!

my 54 is 8.3 kgs, without the suitcase. the wheels are the biggest saving... having said that i'm likely to drop some money on the BMC timemachine TMR01 soon!
