Shimano Groupset but which Range?

by ta2dwez   June 13, 2014  

Hi there, firstly im new to the forums so hi all!

Right i have got a 2x2 Worldwide road bike and im trying to find out what groupset i have on it as there is no indicator as to which range it is. On the dérailleurs it only has 'Shimano' on them with no other markings. On looking online a cant seen to find any other details apart from it has 16 speed Shimano STI. the link below is of the bike i have with its spec. Maybe someone could tell me which Shimano range it is

many thanks in advance

I very much doubt it has a 'series' groupset on it.

somewhere on each component you'll have the model number, e.g. front
mech will have FD-nnnn - try looking on the inside of the mech plates or
back of the derailleur cages. crank arms are normally stamped in the inside
face too ....

examples are like this RD-5600 would be a 105 rear mech or FD-3500 for a
Sora front mech.

still on the 3rd switch-back of Bwlch !

Thanks for the information. I have now determined that's it's the shimano 2300 series groupset.

Thanks again
