drawkrb, as I'd said can't have 2 bikes due to limits on storage space due to already having mine and the missus' mtb's, plus my road bike. Also for that money IMHO I feel I'd get more bang for buck picking up the Foil Team Issue frame and swapping my existing campag stuff over and it'd be cheaper.
I'm now really leaning towards the new wheels and then upgrading one or two other parts. Interesting point bfergie re the cranks, if I'm honest I was thinking that they might be a bit stiffer and get the power down better but I might just save the cash if I go down this route.
Wheels are best for upgrading; and before you get a Cervelo frame ; check out the Canyon - Cube or Ridley Bikes = Top quality for less ££££
I've been drooling over a few Canyon bikes in the last couple of days so am tempted by them, my only problem is not being able to test ride a bike that costs close on two grand.
I'll be hopefully be looking at both a CR1 and Foil tomorrow for an idea on sizing, but have also been looking at wheels and if I don't swap the frame then I will probably go down the hand built route for those.
Just out of curiosity does anyone have any experience of Storck or Merckx bikes as seen a couple of really good deals on their frames.
Ok so I got a chance to swing a leg over a CR1 on Friday but the shop didn't have a Foil for me to try. Not convinced that it's worth me changing the frame as position on the CR1 felt similar to my existing Ribble and after chatting about the Foil I think it's probably going to be a bit too stiff for what I'm riding so going to go down the wheels route.
So my next question is what would be the best all round wheel for a max £500 bearing in mind I've got Campag Khamsins, I'd like something slighty aero but know that 50mm aero wheels are probably pointless as an all rounder.
