That's a sweet ALR! And to get it down to 16lb is amazing for an aluminum bike! Those Paradigms are the latest wheels from Bontrager and they are indeed pretty lightweight! Nice ride!

Why don't you look for a previous year close out on a new Trek Madone 6 or 7 series? Or possibly a clearance Emonda? Do shops by you have any models left from 2014 or 2015?
