I currently have a 2011CAAD10 5 with all stock parts except the wheels and saddle. I put a ton of miles on it every year, and have about 8,000 miles on it total. The question is, should I upgrade the components to DA9000/ SRAM RED22 this fall, or save the money and in a year or so get a whole new bike with those components on it.

If i wait and get a new bike, I will wait till the next iteration of the Venge comes out, its about that time they come out with a new Venge b/c of the windtunnel and their product lifecycle. Or any of the next generation aero road bikes.


Buy new components for this frame or wait and buy whole new bike?

What's the motivation for the upgrade? Is something not to your liking, or do you want to try something new?
