Hey guys, just wanted some expert opinion on a few parts for my new old bike. Not sure yet exactly how I will be using the bike (maybe cross, road, commuting), but I want it to have a good combination of being fast, light, comfortable. I appreciate all your input as I am out of the loop as far as this stuff goes.
WHEELS: Right now it has a road setup with Mavic Cosmos w/700x23c's. Would these Cosmos be ok for cross or ok to put 32c tires? If not, I would just buy another wheelset and put 32c tires. What are some good, not too expensive wheels? Mavic cxp-22?
SEATPOST: Should I do carbon? Thomson Elite? Is Ritchey Comp decent?
SADDLE: Need comfort here. one that minimizes soreness. Selle San Marco? Brooks?
PEDALS: I want the ones that give me the option of clipless or platform.
SHOES: Mountain or Road?
Again, thanks for any input you guys can give me.
