    Hi everyone,
    I am after a Shimano group set (Sora, Tiagra or 105 ;) )

    Would prefer a triple, but beggars can't be choosers, so make me an offer :biggrin:
    If parts, I need at least shifters, cassette, derailleurs and crank set please.

    Does it have to be shimano ?
    You can get an entire groupset in microshift for less than £200 which are shimano compatible.

    Used microshift and it works fine , a bit louder than shimano but my LBS said he liked them as they were positive and i do find shimano a bit vague at times.
    A pro team use the arsis version.

    Thanks for that, I done a bit of research and they seem pretty good. Not many places to buy them though, so the best group I can get are the levers and mechs for 200 quid, which still leaves a cassette and crankset. Which would bump it up another hundred or so, and for that price, I could pick up a full, matched shimano set with brakes too.

    Will keep my eyes open though, cos I have seen people get some bargains on these.

    Yeah after a google you could get a sora groupset for that price, i assumed you had the cassette etc.Depends if you want 9 or 10 speed and want new or second hand
    Merlin are doing 10 speed tiagra for £300 notes.

    Will have a look at that set on Merlin.
    I was after an older groupset purely because I will have to change my rear hub otherwise. But could get wheel set and that groupset for four hundred, so thats not sounding too bad.

    still looking for offers if anyone has any gear though :-)
