I know you were having a play but given it was my bike that started the debate, I thought I ought to explain myself
The parts on this build have just evolved over time, as I have purchased new wheels / groupsets etc for use on my other frames. I think if I was starting from scratch, I would have fitted lower spec parts. My previous winter build (which my son now uses) has Mavic Aksiums and an original Ultegra 6600 set up on a Ribble frame.
I definitely enjoy the feeling of bringing my "best" bike out once spring arrives - although I could not resist taking my C59 out for a decent spin last Sunday as the roads were so clean and dry here in the UK. In addition, I really cant bring myself to ride around on Dura Ace / Super Record groupsets once the salt starts getting laid down
I keep 2 of 3 bikes away from the wet, salt etc. ... if you live in a dry area then winter can still be a nice time to ride the WW high-end stuff.

As a side note, the dog makes me think of the dog version of Mrs. Havisham from Great Expectations. Granted, our dog also has some heavy eye makeup too.
