Is it worth upgrading your groupset?

Groupset. ... If your bike frame is electronic groupset compatible, your budget allows for it and existing groupset is worn out, then an upgrade to electronic shifting is well worth it. The sublime shifting performance and ease of maintenance are superb.

How long should a groupset last?

Usually 2-3 chainrings per cassette. Bottom brackets all over the place; if you ride in the wet you can kill one in hundreds of miles, if you ride only in the dry it might last 10K or more. The rest of the groupset usually lasts a long, long time; I'd be upset if I had to replace a groupset in less than 20-30K miles.

Is it good to buy second hand bike?

Advantages of Buying a Second Hand Bikes:

Lower Expense – Purchasing a bike that has added a few months to its life helps you get a better price than a brand-new model. Lower Premium for Insurance – Though the difference may not be huge, the age of the bike does reduce the value and hence the insurance premium.

How much does it cost to install a groupset?

Local shops around me charge $200 to $300 for a total overhaul. A group change should be no more than a total overhaul charge. Probably a couple hundred bucks. The bike shop will want to install new cables/housing and bar tape on top of doing the components.

Which Shimano groupset should I buy?

Shimano 105 is considered Shimano's first performance groupset, and for many people it is the best option in combining performance, value and longevity. Ultegra is next and is very similar to Dura-Ace in terms of performance, though Dura-Ace is lighter.

Is it worth upgrading tiagra to 105?

How many miles should a rear cassette last?

Get at least a 1000 miles out of chain and cassette. Always change both at same time.

How many miles can you get on a cassette?

I usually get 2,500 - 3,000 miles out of a chain. A cassette will last quite a bit longer as long as the chain is replaced before it gets in too bad of shape. A chain is ready to be replaced when you get more than 3/16-inches of "stretch" as measured with a ruler.
