Aero? unless you go for an aero bike, I would just get a new 45mm aero wheel and / or aero handle bar.

Compliance / Comfort? I would fit the biggest tires it would fit with the new wheel. run low tire pressure, it does makes a difference.

Weight? depends on your wallet. upgrade your current or buy a new lighter weight bike, both can and will cost ya depends on how much you want to spend and how light you want to go. :)

If you like your 595 and there's nothing wrong with it, I would stick with it. I (personally) don't think new bike is worth it unless it offers something that your current bike doesn't have / can't make it work / upgrade would cost about the same as buying a new one.

but then, a new bike is ... a new bike. if you can swing the cash, why not? haha.

just my $0.02
