I was about to get the new SRAM Red shifters and front+rear derailleur - to make the shifting all RED (hehe), but if I do that that cash (around €700-800) will go from what I want to spend the other upgrade I am considering, namely wheels...
For wheels I am totally in limbo and can't decide what would be a perfect upgrade of the Shimano WH-R601s I use as backup and trash wheels today.
I would like to get a set of wheels that ride as well as my 202's, but is better suited for everyday riding in all kinds of weather and on roads with lots of sharp debris.
I think it would have to be a set of clinchers - First of, every test indicate that clinchers roll better and secondly I don't always have extra pre-glued tubs ready and then I have to revert to my clinchers, which always is a downer in terms of ride quality and finally because I am starting to think it is a waste with all the tubs and glue I have to throw out because of cuts that can't be sealed with pitstop or whatever.
I have set myself a budget of €1800-2000 tops - So getting Zipp 303 carbon clinchers and RED is out of the question, even though that could be a first choice.
- I don't race, but I am starting to try and train a bit more structured
- Often train alone, but I also do ride in groups.
- Most riding is done in Windy Denmark (For france I keep my 202's)
- I'm 180cm tall and 62kgs
- Have no problems with flex in the Zipp 202's - So stiffness must be plenty good for me.
What wheels would make a big upgrade from my cheapish Shimano clinchers? Ideally something that would be up there with the Zipp's in feel, Is there something completly different on my parts list that I should consider upgrading?
Should I just say sod it and buy a set of Carbon clinchers like the 303s and keep the force shifting?
LoL sometimes just writing gives you ideas.. Sorry for the spam..
But how would the DA9000 be compared to the 202s? Can you even compare?

You can get a pair of Racing zero clinchers for just €679! http://www.cycle-basar.de/Laufraeder/La ... dsatz.html
or add €10 for the Dark label version
Still debating with my self if, what wheels would be a big enough upgrade so that I don't long for the Zipps every time don't use them..... I really have to try some of the options out in RL, lol...
Can't find my weight.. So I am not able to tell weight atm.
The saddle have gone up and a bit forward and I got a spacer below my headset.. Was the result of a fitting session in february ( http://physioinnovation.dk ). I can really recommend physioinnovation - It shines through that he is a physiotherapist and he spent a lot of time examining my flexibilty, bone and muscle structure, before even getting me on the bike.. It learned me some new things about how my body is built. Luckily he did not have anything super bad to say about my pedalling or fit, but could still give me pointers to how I could improve my pedalling.
I am working on getting the spacer away again (trying to improve my flexibility), , but for now ,the setup match the drop I had before the saddle went up which is a tad more comfy than without the spacer.
Sorry for the lousy picture.
I like the Zipp 101's but I can feel that they are heavier to accelerate than the Zipp 202s , other than that I think I can feel that they are much more aero than my old shimano clinchers.. But its hard to say if its just because I know they are supposed to be more aero
I think the 202s will now mainly be used when I go climbing in the mountains.
Ps. Sorry for the lousy language, punctation etc.. I'm on a bad keyboard and really tired..
