well, that's not what i've heard.Steve Austin said:Bonj, GET OUT of know-how. Comments like that are completely worthless and wrong.
there is a world of difference between Dura-Ace and sora, and it appears you don't know this.
shifting is better in the higher quality groupsets
the more expensive sets last longer
Also they're are lots of individual nuances to each range , and you could find someone running a specific component form one range because its available in that gearing, ie cassette ratio
certain bike shop staff admit dura-ace is only lighter, this isn't in the bike shop's best interest as they want you to buy dura-ace, and thinking there's something more to it would make you more likely to.Steve Austin said:Have you ever used dura-ace, ultegra, 105, tiagra, sora?
would you be able to tell the difference between
your arse and your elbowthem?
As someone who has spent more than twenty years in the cycle trade, who worked as a mechanic on the British HPV Racing Team and who now works for the pre-eminent cycling promotion company as Head of Technical Services with responsibility for the maintenance and up-keep of 400 bikes I feel qualified to tell you that Steve does in fact know more than you do.bonj said:oh shut it, you don't know any better than i do.
So clearly he's [now, 19 days later] a fully-qualified expert...bonj said:I just won these shifters - what do you reckon , not bad for £75 inc p+p? or not great?
and where does '105' come in the sequence?
the way i understand it it's
Dura-Ace <--- highest
??? others ???
??? <----- lowest
where does 105 fit into this?
are these shifters going to be alright do you reckon with my existing 8 speed mech, and new cable outer?
Yorks - Ive got Tiagra sti levers and as much as they do they job and are 9sp: go for the 10sp. as the lever stroke aint a big AND ALSO go for something better than Tiagra ie 105 upwards...yorkshiregoth said:Is there a great deal of difference between Shimano Sora and Tiagra and 105 and Ultegra and Dura-Ace?
