    @ Mr Q- I guess you could take that view with anything though... at the end of the day all bits are replaceable, its the rider that matters!

    True but wheels are so easily damaged.

    I have considered this and realised there is no point getting carbon for the sake of it unless I'm going to save a lot of weight, I don't race anymore and I'm a climber so weight is more important than aerodynamics anyway. However my logic is that I got 3,900 back for the damage to the bike, I've decided to keep the frame and take a chance on it as I don't think there's any internal damage so 1,400 spent on eTap and SRAM red brakes leaves 2,500 to spend - just about covers the Enve 2.2's. So I've mentally written them off.

    Question is: What will I spend the personal injury compensation on? - will be at least 5 k maybe as much as 10!
    i spent my accident pay out on a house extension. I did get a bike room out of it. Although I'd rather they kept the money and I'd avoided the hospital unpleasantness.
