That is very true what Jim states. It crossed my mind when I read the first thread but forgot about it before I gave the links. If you are going to do any upgrades and don't want to buy a new bike (some new bikes in the lower price range have larger comprimises) make sure you research to find the best you can get for the amount of money you want to spend. Look in at least three different places before purchasing and get reviews too.JimC. said:you don't say what you ride, so I can't say what might be a target to upgrade. Generally, upgrade what breaks. If you have an entry level bike, put the $200 into an account and grow it for a good ride in a year or 2.
Don't order from the M-O houses David listed, unless you clearly understand shipping, international charges, border fees and brokerage, and that the $200 CAD is $180 USD. Not to bash David, but most US riders have no idea about international shipping, for that matter neither do most Canadians. It's a minefield that can make a bargain stateside way more than what you could have gotten it for in Canada.
What's wrong with your current ride?
