Best upgrade option

Hi everyone,

I've been thinking about upgrading some of the components on my Specialized Allez Elite 2009 model but amd getting a little confused and unsure which item to upgrade first or if at all. The main reason for upgrading is because I take part in triathlons and would like a slightly more agressive position, so I thought about turning the stem upside down and/or removing some of the headset spacers. I thought this might be a quick and relativly painfree/cheap option. On talking to my local bike shop he thinks the biggest difference would if I upgraded the wheelset from the Stock Mavic’s CXP22 to either Mavic Axiums or some Pro build wheels on 105 hubs. ( ... 71&pg=1916) However, the bike was reviewed on this site and they said that the crankset would be the first thing to be upgraded? What are people's views as to what I should go for next perhaps??

Thanks in advance for any views/tips/replies!
