I appreciate this. Thank you. If I wanted to just buy wheels, do you have any suggestions? The Fulcrum Racing 5 LG wheels that come with the bike are somewhere around 1650 grams. I'm having a hard time finding wheels for ~$1500 that are under 1300 grams. Seems like a big waste of $1500 for 300 grams.
Under 1300g at that price range? I don't think so.. still, there are a number of great options at $1200-1600 right now: Reynolds Aero 46, Campy Bora One 35/50, FLO45/60s, even light-bicycle with industry9 hubs isn't a bad choice for the price IMO.. all of these are within the 1400-1500g range so not super weight savings-per-dollar, but I think you'd find that the affect on the characteristics of the ride adds a bit more to the return than just the 100-200g weight saving (which is still a good amount). Up to you though. Like I said, there's still better gram/dollar savings to be had before you get to that point. The desire to upgrade & refine is a never ending process :wink:

Are these expensive?
Let’s just say it rivals lots of entire bike prices and some high end framesImageImage

But to be a true baller one must spend like oneImageImageImage
:lol: :lol:

Depends on the exact model, but they start from £1000+ in the UK. So certainly not cheap, but what can I say, I have a coffee addiction...
