So both myself and my wife took the plunge a few years ago and brought ourselves some upgraded bikes.
The bikes we have at the moment are a Bianchi, Infinito - 105 and she is on a Scott CR1 - 105.
We have been doing a number of Sportives over the last 24 months and my wife always feels that she is holding me back on them, to be honest the difference in average speed is a few mph and if she sits behind me its negligible. She has been out training on her speed for the last few months and is making gains but still feels that she is holding the group back.
I had a wild thought though, if we where to purchase new wheels and put them on her bike then this may help give her an extra 1-2 mph average speed that would even up the differences on the assumption my speed remains as it is at the moment.
So my first question is will new wheels lead to an increase in average speed?
The second is if yes which wheels would be a good shout at around the £750 mark.
