Ok, so obviously it goes unsaid that training is my #1 priority to everything below but this year I'll be treating myself to a few things as the season unfolds. The reason I have not put coaching on the list is because I want to wait till next year when I know a little more.
Here are a few of the items I'm considering this year and I was hoping maybe you more experienced racers would put em' in order to what you think would be the best investments to make first and what maybe are just a waste all together.
1) New bike (later this summer) something to replace my trek 1500, it will be used for racing and training. It'd be replacing a 19.5 lb 9 spd trek 1500. I'm thinking a CAAD9 Ultegra or a Cervelo S1.
2) Deep Section carbon rims, probably something like a used set of Easton EC90 Aeros or Tempest II's. Right now I'm on Easton EA70s (maybe this would just be a waste of money?)
3) Power meter (Was thinking maybe it's a bit too early for this, maybe wait for next year?)
Out of those things what would you go for first, or would you go for none? Maybe ya'll have some ideas I'm over looking. I know gear doesn't make the rider but I like gear and feel like making some upgrades this year since I didn't really last year.
