    Soon it will be my birthday, Mrs Mortiroloboy keeps asking me what I would like, I have told her to give me some readies and if any other family members ask her what I'd lke to tell them the same. Then I can do some upgrading!

    My dilemma... Your assistance if you would. <ahem> Now, do I buy a Campy Mirage Groupset, currently on sale at Probikekit and fit it to my winter hack, currently running a mixture of Shim*no 2200 and truvativ, which will mean changing the freehub on my virtually new Aksiums, I could then swap the
    R7's off my Wilier (short term) and look for better wheels come the Spring/Summer.

    Or do I buy some better wheels for my Wilier to replace the Fulcrum R7's
    (Wilier is all Campy G/S) and keep the basic, (but it works) mixture of Shim*no/truvativ which is currently on my winter bike.

    Your thoughts most welcome.:tongue:

    Go get a Dura Ace Group set for the W; and an Ultegra one for the WH. Then get a set of properly built Open Pros on your shiny new DA hubs.

    Or option two as you described.

    Hope that helps (Smiley thing - I'm in quick reply)

    Sorry to seem ungrateful, but that's not really helping me, I can expect £100 from the Mrs, maybe, maybe, just maybe about the same combined from the rest of the family, plus the £140 I have 'hidden' away, so possibly a total of £340, so New wheels for the Wilier or an upgrade G/S for the SCR4?

    As I said (but yu didn't read!)

    Option two - new wheels for the Wilier

    It's namby-pamby dogooding wishy-washy liberal political correctness gone mad!

    Go for the best wheels and tyres you can. No question.

    Are Michelin PR3's out yet?

    Parkers have got Campag Zondas @ £250 and Neutrons @ £325 a pair, so just remains to be seen how much wonga I get given, as to which pair I can afford to get, I have to say that the Neutrons do look very nice, both spec wise and visually too.
