its that time of year. a change or make over is needed. what do you suggest.( sorry for the small pic )

frame and group set is not being changed. - Oltre XR & Super Record EPS

wheels = Zipp 404 tubbies
pedals = Speedplay Zero

A question like that will probably yield you replies of infinite possibilities and phenomenal price tags.... Why don't you tell us what your goal and budget is..

Goal = just change somethings. Breathe of fresh air.
Budget = not a concern as the cost is in the frame and groupset already( I think)

How about an integrated bar/stem combo? Cinelli, perhaps?

I kind of like it how it is... if you insist on a real change both visually and by performance, I'd go for a new wheelset.. everything else on that bike is pretty spot on.. maybe the stem if anything..

Thanks for the replies guys. :beerchug:
Not a real fan for the intergrated stem/handle bar.
I got a Garmin out front fitted lately.
Regards wheels - suggestions? But what could be better than 404 Zipps - it's a wheelset which tick all boxes [ I think] :shock:

I suggest taking it to the Alps as that beach scene doesn't do it justice ... Perhaps I am just jealous of your weather.
