M5 Seat & Aero Wheels For Speed
I purchased a Bacchetta Strada two months ago and enjoy it very much. However, I, as many other cyclists, would like to get a little more speed out of the bike. I know that I, the engine, am the most important element. Still I would like to make improvements on the bike while I get in shape. From what I have been reading, a fairing may not be that helpful on this bike and I am not interested in wearing a giant sock. My seat is back as far as I can put it and still reach the handlebars. I have also read that a number of Strada owners have resorted to replacing their mesh seat with an M5 carbon seat and their original wheels with lighter ones. For those of you that have done this, whether on a Strada or some other brand, how was your average speed affected? Was your comfort compromised? Was it worth the expense?
Thank you for your response!
