    Giro. Weather. Especially in the Dolomites and the Italian Alps. It is also early in the season, so figuring things out can be interesting.

    The key is that seat stay assembly. The tuning fork look, they hung on to that for a long while on their cross bike. Obviously holds more weight for touring, too. Not much give back there, I can...

    Good post.

    It's frame, wheels, and components in that order of importance. So I would agree with your last sentence, unless you have the money to do both...better groupset and wheels.
