I'm new here and new to racing, but I did search before posting ...
Here's my question: Based on your experience, where will my money be best spent: A new road bike, new wheels, new TT bike?
Background information: I have a decent bike, Lapierre senssium 400, but it's not fast. I have a set of carbon clinchers, but they can't seem to handle my weight/power. I ride about 200 to 250 miles a week and am loving racing. Where I live is quite hilly and even though I'm a very heavy rider, I climb well, because I work on it all the time.
I'm just starting out with racing, but really enjoy road racing and time trials. Although I'm a very heavy rider, I climb a lot and climb pretty well.
The bike I'm looking at would be a Venge, the wheels Zipp 303 ... and the TT bike...don't have anything in mind. I've done well in time trials on a road bike with clip-on aero bars, finishing 1st and 3rd in smallish races and 5th in the Valley of the Sun stage race two weeks ago, all category 5 of course.
I can't think of what else I am not mentioning. Thank you for your time and input.
