Next upgrade

by MatEnd   July 7, 2014  

Hello everyone, just looking for some advice from those in the know.

I currently have a cube peloton race (link below) and was wondering what people would advise to upgrade on it. I have maybe 600/700 to spend on something. Stages power meter? new wheels? I have bought clip on aero bars which are fantastic but want to see what upgrade options I have.

In terms of riding I commute 20 miles a day in london and then go on 100 mile rides in the country on the weekend.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

I'm no expert, and I don't know your bike, but the accepted wisdom is that in general, upgrading the wheels is the biggest impact you can have when improving your bike.

Wheels or power meter... only you can decide, the key being how seriously you take your training. If you are building for the future, then get a power meter and use it in conjunction with coaching, to improve the rider. If performance now is the driver, then some fancy wheels is the way to go.
