Hi Ladies and Gents. What do you think of my ride?? I have only just upgraded the wheels and haven't been out on a long ride yet (work commitments). I plan to upgrade to Dura Ace crank set as money allows. What do you think I should upgrade next? :wink:

Good idea, I will post some new pictures in the sun when I get chance. Totally agree regarding DA mechanical's! I will keep the Ultegre Di2 setup and change all the mechanicals. What is your opinion of DA components over lesser options ie Ultegra, 105? I will upgrade as my bank balance allows : )

Shoes are superb! Great venting qualities and very light. As far as I know they are the normal insoles but they are comfy.

Cheers. I probably will do at some point but not just now as I've only done about 100 miles on them. They're the Bontrager R3's.

Was thinking of jumping straight to the Dura Ace crankset. What you reckon? I'm worried I will get Ultegra then wish I'd bought DA! Am I sad or what??
