I got a giant ocr 3 and have upgraded the seat and the pedals. I have some money to spend on the bike but i don't know what i should upgrade next ?

Candidly, save your dough for an upgraded ride, and eventually the OCR3 can be your back-up or rain bike.

The full-Sora drivetrain is not really made to upgrade piecemeal (ie., you can't just get new shifters), and it isn't worth a whole new group.

The frame and componentry aren't worth a new fork or wheelset. I mean, the OCR3 retails for, what, $600? If you dump $300 into, you don't get a $900 bike (IMO).

Not a bad thing, and not a bad bike. But you'll get the best bang for the buck getting better components on a better frame all at one time down the road.
