Hi,

 

been looking for an upgrade on my current Cannondale caad8 for a while now and have come across this beauty (well, I think it is)

read some really positive reviews and the price reduction is really tempting me. The only aspect I'm unsure of is the Vision wheels.

Would appreciate your thoughts, in particular those who have one of these.

cheers

It would appear less than 10% is going into the wheels so they will obviously be the weak point. Good frame and di2 for that price point looks very good value so I suppose it's a matter of how long you can live with the wheel set or whether the retailer would upgrade taking the existing ones RRP into account if the budget allows chucking a little more at it.

No problem, I also do a range of official looking documentation on why you must have this bike (in case of spouse disapproval)...
