    Which upgrade you made on your bike satisfied you most?

    I think most people will be voting for wheelset (sorry, there is no poll) but i wonder what will come out as second choice.

    In order of satisfaction: Clipless pedals, frameset, tires, handlebars, saddle, computer, cassette, wheels.
    Don't believe everything you think.

    The verdict is still out on the 200mm cranks. But, otherwise, saddle & tires. Already had decent pedals and wheels.

    I got some shallow depth bars that really make a huge difference in my riding comfort.

    Two wheels good. Four wheels bad.

    Main contact points for sure...

    the right shoes, the right saddle, pedals (speedplay for my knees), 11-28 cassette and then wheels. I lust over wheel upgrades the most, but I know they aren't as dramatic as their cost.

    The only upgrade I made was my saddle. So far so good. Let's see if upgrading to a new wheelset and handlebar with a flare next year will put a smile on my face.

    Powertap, although I'd imagine I'd say pedals and/or saddle if those didn't work for me.

    I just upgraded from Ultegra 6700 to 10-year-old Campy Chorus. Loving the higher performance in shifting.

    Yes...you read that right.

    Upgraded wheel reflectors. Way nicer than the ones that came with the bike!
