I have about $600 saved up right now to go towards....well anything. Should I keep saving and apply it towards a better/lighter wheelset? I was thinking about getting black DA 7900 brakes and DA derailleur. Also thought about saving up till next year and looking into swapping the frame out for an evo, but that extreme since I just got this frame 3 months ago and my wife would not be happy/understand. What else would you look into?

2012 Cdale supersix
Boyd vitesse clinchers
vredistien tri comp tires
Specialized Romin evo pro carbon rails
ultegra shifters
ultegra RD
DA Front derailleur
new ultegra 6700 11-28
SLK crankset
New ultegra chain
praxis works chainring 52/36
new exustar ti pedals
19g carbon water bottle cages
garmin edge 500

Currently have but will be replaced after xmas:
ritchey carbon evolution pro bars
thomson elite seatpost (zero setback)
thomson elite X4 stem

will be replaced with:
Ritchey superlogic II carbon bars
Ritchey c260 wet black stem
Ritchey superlogic one bolt seatpost

ALSO coming for xmas:
KCNC skewers
aerozine seatpost clamp
Ti bolt set for my stem, cages, seatpost clamp and seatpost

fizik microtex glossy bartape

You could get a set of hollowgrams for about that price. I would do that or keep saving for a wheelset upgrade.

Otherwise that's a really nice bike!

p.s. the EVO upgrade wouldn't be worth it IMHO. I can't justify it and I ride a CAAD 10. Much better upgrade for wheels and crank.
