    Upgrading to Dura Ace 7850 from Bontrager SSR

    Upgrade bug has got to me. I currently ride a 2009 Trek 2.1 not upgraded to full Ultegra SL.

    http://www.trekbikes.com/us/en/bikes/2009/archive/21 with Bontrage SSRs.

    I saw a deal on Dura Ace 7850's for $350.

    Would this be a worthy upgrade?

    Yes, my Bontrager SSRs weighed in over 2300 grams. You will shed a ton of weight off the wheels and while you may not go any faster it sure will make riding more pleasurable.

    I've had a pair of 7850's for 3 years. IMO, they are a great all around wheel. I haven't had any problems with them.

    Barely used from a part out, considering whether it would be worth it. Since everything on my bike is upgraded besides my frame and wheels. And the price is in my price range, maybe even lower if I haggle. Wanted to see if this would be good or if there are any other alternatives within the relative range that would be a better fit. Can't afford zipp wheels yet!
