Very, very nice. Not much to improve there, honestly, But if you feel the urge, it is the crankset and the wheels... although with the wheels, even if you go carbon, keep it low profile (Hyperons)?

2016 update. Work has taken over in the past 2 years and I don't have as much time to get out on the bike. Trying to achieve a better balance in 2016 and spend more time in the saddle.

A few updates over the past year or so:

1) Camapagnolo overtorque chainset - lighter and stiffer than a square taper set up. Doesn't spin as smoothly but you can't have everything.

2) Deda 35 stem and alloy bars - doesn't quite look right due to its bulky form, but the combo is a lot stiffer out of the saddle.

Next step:

1) Reconsider bars and stem, perhaps a stiffer 31.8 set up, recommendations please quite like the zipp beyond black finish which would match the smud seatpost a bit better!
2) New wheels, fancy some carbon tubs for the summer.

Updates for the summer:

1) Campagnolo Super Record RS FD with Smud carbon clamp
2) Smud saddle and post on
3) Itm millenium 13cm stem and millenium shallow bars.

Any ideas on further changes? Perhaps Super Record RS RD and brake calipers and Lightweight wheels?

great looking bike i think. if you wanted to change it then yes i think the SR Upgrades are a great idea and lightweights for sure. fernwegs would look fantastic. get exactly what you want. if you don't this time then you'll just end up getting there at some point (and further cost). bora 80s look similarly great but are much cheaper. perhaps you prefer low profile wheels and i am sure ventoux/gipfelsturm would look great on this.

also the thread spanned a number of years and i cannot help but wonder, how did the weight go? 75 kg was mentioned as a desired weight, where are you on that?

my suggestion regarding deeper wheels might sound a bit silly but i really do think a traditional bike like this with thinner tubing looks great with deeper wheels. perhaps 50 mm might be more practical if you see much wind around your way.
