I bought a 1997 trek 5200 OCLV about 2 years ago but once I got my license I got lazy so im just getting back into riding. Im upgrading the OCLV right now am am hoping to get a new aero wheelset sometime in August. What would be a good set for someone 120lbs in the 300 dollar area, maybe a used set? IM trying to shave a few pounds off, right now im riding the stock matrix auro rims with ultegra 600 hubs and conti grand prix's. So far I switched to a threadless 1in setup. Looking into a new fork Easton EC70 looks nice, going to 9spd ultegra (not for awhile), Thompson elite seatpost, TTT forma bars, have a Selle Italia Oktavia pro gel saddle on the way. Still need to get some road shoes and cleats for my Look carbo pro's right now im riding heavy Shimano 535 mtb pedals. Should take a pound or so off the bike. Im on a budget so what should I upgrade first?

Thanks
Jim
