Im sure we all go through this and i guess wheel gains have been discussed a lot, but I would like some opinions on my specific situation.
I’ve been riding for 6 months.
Really, really enjoying it and have progressed quickly on trainer road. From a 210 ftp to around 280ftp (just under 4wpkg)
Riding i intend to do:
Racing around a local track on the weekends with friends
Long sportives 100-160kms
Training for a long distance ironman next year, with some sprint and olympic triathlons booked in September (if they go ahead)
Some climbing holidays
So i bought the base model Tarmac with 105. It rides great but i am eyeing up the Roval CL50s that are on the more expensive bikes. I bought a trainer and that has helped my riding immensely. I understand that for outside, wheels are probably the best upgrade?
Money is not a huge issue here, but im reluctant because i wonder if the frame and groupset etc will not be enough in a years time should my enthusiasm continue to rise?
So, do i leave it for a year because i will outgrow the frame and just end up buying a new bike with better wheels anyway? Or will these wheels on this frame be more than enough to ride and race on for a long long time unless i get above 4.5wpkg?
