Thanks to the Cycle to Work scheme I can now afford to treat myself to a Paul Hewitt Cheviot, and am due to got for a fitting in a a couple of weeks time. I am sure that Paul will be able to offer lots of good advice on how I should set the bike up, but I would like to go armed with a few ideas. The main changes I would like to make to the standard specification is to make it more of a fast tourer - without pushing up the price too much! My main questions so far are: 1. I want to go for STI levers rather than bar end shifters, as I normally ride on the brake hoods anyway. I don't really want to fork out for Shimano 105s, so would the VeloceErgo levers be a good bet, or would I be better off with some Sora or Tiagra brake levers. 2. I would want to run narrower tyres most of the time (25mm or 28mm), so presumably I need the narrower DRC 18 rims, rather than the DRC 19's that come with the standard build. Also, I know nothing about DRC rims as I have used Mavic rims for years (because these were what my LBS recommended) - but can I assume they are as good a choice as any other rim? 3. I am basically happy with the standard chainset, but wonder whether there would be any benefits in going for a Stronglight chainset? 4. Is there anything else I should be thinking about?
