    SS parts opinions...

    Opinions?
    • 1/8th
    • Tec9
    • All City
    • Nitto

    Any other brands I should consider when looking to upgrade my Lager?

    Wheelsets:
    Who should I look to for wheesets?
    What's considered a decent weight?

    Thanks.

    Tec9 is pretty cheap stuff. What do you have in mind for upgrade?

    Anything that'll make it lighter and that'll make it perform better.

    Crankset from FSA Vero...definitely. <$125.ish
    Saddle already a given to a Fizik Aliante.
    Bar...I might make my own out of an aluminum Cannondale C3 I have.
    Wheels...anything lighter and best suited for the streets. ,$300.
    Tires, tubes...Continental GP4000Ss + some lighter tubes.

    Generally, anything that'll give me a better riding experience.

    Brakes...I'm liking Ultegra SL's for it.

    Sounds about right.
    Going to run 28's.
    I'm 210lbs @ 5'9".
    Even when I drop to my regular 190ish,
    I'm still going to need a strong set.

    FSA vero's are fine, but if you want you can order Trutativ omnium's for 165 dollars, the only thing that would be a good upgrade - however, vero's are fine for city riding and such.
    300 dollars for wheels is good. Get a set of Open Pros to dura ace hubs for 325.
    GP4ks are great.

    What are you using it for? Lockup/city bike? What are you upgrading from?

    Those Trutativs are nice.

    I have a brand new Vero double crankset I didn't even let the dealer mount on the
    bike they came OEM on (had an Ultegra SL Set installed before it left the LBS).

    300 dollars for wheels is good. Get a set of Open Pros to dura ace hubs for 325.
    GP4ks are great.
    DA hubs on OPs for $300.?
    Is that even possible?

    1) What are you using it for?
    2) Lockup/city bike?
    3) What are you upgrading from?
    1) Aggressive urban riding.
    2) HELL NO! I live in New York!
    3) OEM Lager bits:

    RIM Alex R500, 32H, Double Wall w/ CNC Sidewalls, Stainless Spokes
    FRONT HUB SE High Flange Alloy, 32H, Hollow Axle, Sealed Bearing,
    REAR HUB SE High Flange Fixed Free Alloy, 32H, Hollow Axle, Sealed Bearing, 17T FW & 16T Cog

    If I remember correctly, these wheels weigh somewhere in the neighborhood of 2350g.
