a chap at work bought a bike for the wilmslow triathlon for £80 from decathlon. saw it today, it's a heavy steel bike (heavier, i think, than my 531 winter bike) with downtube shifters. i was going to give him advice on how to upgrade it, but i'm not sure that it's worth doing anything more than getting clipless pedals and shoes. i would never go back to downtube shifters, but the cost of upgrading to even shimano sora would be, imo, not worth the expense when you can get an alu framed, sora equipped bike for under £300 these days. wotcha think?
