Here's my situation: I've saved up quite a bit of "present points?" I Didn't get anything for christmas or my birthday b/c i said that i wanted something for my bike, but wanted to wait till i got into racing. I'm to start racing this season, What do you think i should ask for?
I have a nice Eddy Merckx MxM, and i would be devestated if i crashed it in a race..
My thoughts are, once i get to Cat IV, get a pair of tubular racing wheels.. lookin at the Reynolds SDV66s (this would be my racing & training bike)
get http://www.specialized.com/bc/SBCBkModel.jsp?spid=34009 Specialized Tarmac Comp Double, for racing..
I have an old Steel Racing bike, it's pretty light, but i would get a carbon fork, new seat, and switch out the handlebars with ones i already have.
What do you guys think i should do from a performance, sense and cost standpoint? I really don't want to do any damage to my Merckx, but i still want to USE it.
