Wow, R10K. So many things come to mind from sensible to silly...


You could get some tools and spares (tyres, chains, cassettes, cables and chainrings) and enter a big race or two out of town and make a short holiday out of it.

You could put your bike on a diet and get some silly light wheels or replace your groupset and or bar/stem/seatpost and saddle.

You could get a new pair of shoes and helmet and Camelbak and/or Garmin/Polar.

You could invest in a coach/trainer and a program with a proper bike set-up to work on during winter.

I will go with Tazman (the sane option), but ... who wants to be sane?  go with your gut feeling.

Rough decisions like this should not exist. Lighten your load and give it to a good friend and let him worry.

More serious:



Edge 705

Compression garments

Light weight wheelset

Double crankset (2x9)

Upgrade to SRAM X.9

Parktool toolset

maybe this was not a good idea!


more confusion than ever now!


have been thinking about the XX option, will this be the best approach:


rear mech, cranks and cassette to start - will 10 k be enough?
