Many thanks to you all
Your responses chime with my feeling - if it ain't broke..
We're not the fastest team, but we enjoy riding together at our pace, which is the mean between the two of us on singles
Your advice about faster wheels - well, I bought a pair of excellent hand built wheels from Rocky Mountain Cyclery in Loveland Colerado - credit where it's due - and whereas maybe they're not the lightest, they are lighter, less friction, absolutely true, and added a lot to the bike
They came with 9 rear cogs, my bar end shifters are set up for the original 7, so I'm using friction - which works pretty well. So, I think my upgrade will be a set of 9 speed Ultegra shifters/levers, a 50th of a new bike, and enjoy what has given me pleasure so far!!
