    Don’t forget cables and junction boxes. They add a reasonable amount to the overall costs.

    You may also require additional hardware to fit the battery, assuming internal, into the seatpost.

    You'll also need a fair chunk of disposable cash.:smile:

    The brakes are cable operated. The ‘electric’ part is that they also have switches to change gear.

    Depends how hilly the TT course is as you’d not ride on the bars on steeper sections but still may wish to change gear.

    They are optional though and you don’t need to fit them. Just stay with your current brakes if you prefer.
