Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Upgrades for Cannondale Six13 2005 model

Hi Y'all,

I recently purchased a used Cannondale Six13 2005 model and the bike is awesome. This is my first professional road bike and i am quite blessed. It came with Campy record two sets of wheels Campy Vento and Eurus 2005 models. Also i got time pedals included so i am quite happy with my purchase.

However i am looking to upgrade her eventually and was hoping that y'all might be able to give me some suggestions.

The areas that i have been researching are wheels and bearings.

The wheels that have come to my attention seem to be the Reynolds Assault and Topolino Technology VX4.0 and possibly Williams Cycling 38 clinchers. I am looking for Racing wheels that don't cost more than two grand and that can take a hit. Or would it be even worth it to upgrade the wheels from what i have now? Also do y'all think tubular wheels are worth the extra cost

Also would any of you suggest replacing the bearings on the bike with ceramic bearings?

Any other parts of the bike that might be easy to upgrade let me know!

Thanks y'all for your time!

You've got a great bike. If it's in good mechanical shape, then leave it alone. Put new bar tape on it or a nice set of tires. Good cables are always a nice addition. The only thing that's holding you back is the engine. Work on that the most.
