Hi everyone, I'm looking for some help and any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!I'm currently riding a 2011 model genesis equilibrium(10) and am looking at some upgrades for it but not sure what best to do. Wheels are a definite mod, but I plan on keeping the standard alex ones as a back up in case I get a ding on the new ones ( the roads up here in the western isles are terrible!)
My main question is, if I keep the same running gear but with a second (Shimano HG-50 12/25T 9-spd)freewheel for the new rear for easy changeovers it's obviously cheaper, but if I uprate the transmission to say a 10-speed 105 or Ultegra then how much of the system will i have to change? Not afraid of the spanners but obviously also not entirely clued up on the minutae of technical matters!
#Oh - budget of £400 - £500 over and above the wheels! If I decide to go that way of course - all advice welcome! Thanks!
