As you know, I've been struggling with the concept of a new bike or a good upgrade. I died hard over a Gunnar Sport by Waterford Bikes but balked at the 2500 dollar price tag. So I've currently on order new wheels, a new handlebar and stem, new brake levers, a new chain and a new cassette. I'm sticking with the old c-dale and it's dt shifters. As I have recently changed the seatpost and saddle, all that will remain to change will be the paint(maybe later this year) and the old crankset which the lbs said was perfectly serviceable and needs no changing. Truth be told I'm glad about keeping the frameset. It would be a shame to let it go after many years of good reliable service after all its not like I'm a major corp. looking to downsize.
