Hello everyone, this is my first post!

I started to cycle in Setember 2011 and after 6 months with a 2nd hand B'Twin aluminium road bicycle with Shimano Sora from 2008, I decide to buy something better.

My choice was the Specialized Roubaix Apex Compact (size 52) because I like the idea of the extra confort. I'm 30 years old, 1,72m and 80 Kg and not getting any younger...

http://www.specialized.com/us/en/bc/SBC ... cname=Road" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

The stock configuration is:

FRAME Specialized FACT 8r carbon, FACT IS construction, compact race design w/ Zertz inserts, 1-1/8" to 1-3/8" head tube, threaded BB
FORK Specialized FACT carbon, full monocoque, Zertz inserts
HEADSET 1-1/8" upper and 1-3/8" lower Cr-Mo cartridge bearings, w/ 20mm cone spacer and 20mm of spacers
STEM Specialized EliteSet, 3D forged alloy, 12-degree, 4-position adjustable, 4-bolt, 31.8mm clamp
HANDLEBARS Specialized Comp, alloy, shallow bend
TAPE Specialized Roubaix wrap w/ 2.5 gel pads
FRONT BRAKE SRAM Apex
REAR BRAKE SRAM Apex
FRONT DERAIL SRAM Apex
REAR DERAILL SRAM Apex, mid cage
SHIFT LEVERS SRAM Apex DoubleTap, 10-speed
CASSETTE SRAM Apex, 10-speed, 11-32t
CHAIN KMC X10 CP
CRANKSET SRAM S150
CHAINRINGS 50/34
BB SRAM Power Spline BB
FRONT WHEEL DT Axis 2.0
REAR WHEEL DT Axis 2.0
FRONT TIRE Specialized Espoir Sport w/ double BlackBelt, 60 TPI, wire bead, 700x23c
REAR TIRE Specialized Espoir Sport w/ double BlackBelt, 60 TPI, wire bead, 700x23c
INNER TUBES Lightweight, presta
SADDLE Body Geometry Toupé Plus Sport
SEATPOST New Specialized Sport, alloy, 27.2mm
SEAT BINDER Forged alloy, 32.6mm

And I added the following:

PEDALS Keo Look Easy (240g)
GPS Garmin Edge 200 (60g)
BOTTLE+CAGE Specialized Bottle (77g) and alloy cage (65g)

Current total Weight: 9.150g (9,15 Kg; 20,17 pounds)

I want to reduce weight because I find it almost as heavy has my previous bike.
My plans are first to replace wheels (maybe the Mavic Ksyrium Elite - 1550g) and tires (Michelin PRO 3/4 or Continental 4000S) and then the crankset and button bracket (need help to choose one).

After that I'm clueless but I'm sure you can give me some great tips!

Thank you very much!

Olá,

Antes de mais não gastes € nessa bicicleta que não vale a pena..

Depois disto gasta € no que podes mudar para outra bike que venhas a comprar.. (conheces a canyon? http://www.canyon.com/_en/)

Pedais e gps..
http://geizhals.at/de/ este site permite pesquisar preços e é muito bom.

Para o GPS o garmin 705 é uma optima opção por 220€ com hr.

Para pedais, look keo max 2 carbon por 90€ são bons...

Rodas, não faças a asneira da mavic.. se souberes montar rodas ou tiveres quem te as monte podes montar umas rodas de 1250 gramas por 350€
cubos da bikehubstore
aros notubes alpha 340
raios csSpoke

Cumprimentos,

Filipe Dias

Filipe obrigado pela tua contribuição.

Comprei esta bicicleta há 1 semana porque é o quadro que eu gosto. Não deve ser assim tão mau pois ganhou o Paris-Roubaix por 3 anos consecutivos (2008, 2009 e 2010) com o Tom Boonen e o Cancelara... Sei que é um pouco cara para os componentes que trás mas foi uma opção consciente.

Conheço as Canyon mas estão de ano para ano cada vez mais caras e a única que consideraria era a Ultimate CF 9.0 que já custa quase 2200€ (+500€ do que custou a minha...).

Os pedais e o gps já estão comprados também.

Em relação às rodas é que não sabia dessa possibilidade, sabes dar-me algum contacto cá em Portugal de quem possa fazer esse tipo de montagens? Obrigado!
