will i notice much difference???...complete newbie to the road
difference of £200 on the bike
slight lighter and better shifting on the tiagra
as above. but if you prefer the sora shifters with the thumb button, you won't be losing too much.
The sora shifters change to smaller cogs by using a thumb button.
For most people this means that you can't change gear while in the drops. If that bothers you, go Tiagra - they change to smaller cogs using a paddle that is easily reachable from hoods or drops. Personally I like Tiagra a lot better than I liked the Sora shifters. YMMV.
Slightly off topic, whenever someone types 'tiagra' it reminds me of 'viagra'....
never thrort of that tbh lol
