Boulder Bicycle Road Sport

Just got home from my first outdoor ride of the season aboard this new to me bicycle! (Frameset from gregj). The build is simple and mostly what I had lying around or what was cheap, but I couldn't be happier with how it performed. Being a lighter rider, I appreciate the thin walled, skinny tubing quite a bit here. The geometry is spot on and was plenty comfortable with 30s and latex tubes. I would like to upgrade to newer, lighter, and more performance oriented tires like the P-Zero or GP5k. Any recommendations?

Build as follows:
Frameset: Boulder Bicycle Road Sport
Stem: Salsa (super cool, but too short unfortunately, so will need to swap)
Handlebars: Simworks Co-Miserlou
Seatpost: Velo Orange (the black is a nice match, but it's wicked long and heavy)
Saddle: Selle Italia SLR something
Group: Non-aero Ultegra! 50/34 crank and 11/28 10spd cassette
Wheels: DT 240 hubs laced to Velocity A23s
Tires: Specialized Roubaix 700x30 w/ Vittoria latex tubes

This frame rides so beautifully that I'm looking forward to some tasteful and/or big upgrades as funds allow to bring down the weight a little bit. That being said, the bicycle is certainly not the thing holding me back at this point in the season.

I had a classic side on shot for this location but I can't seem to get it to resize properly. I'll have to follow up with that when I get it figured out.
