|Campy Vs Shimano||specializedfan|

|I bought a bike that has Shimano sora componets. I am upgrading the group. Am looking at either 105 or campy Veloce. I am leaning towards the the campy due to what freinds have been telling me. I have another bike with 105 and they are telling that I will like the Veloce way better than the 105.
What do you all think?

|Either one is going to require a different rear wheel. Honestly, most component upgrades don't make economic sense. If you want a better bike, my advice would be to get what you can out of this one and start over new.|

|save up for a new bike; a bike that came with Sora probably isn't worth upgrading.|
|Ditto! keep the old as beater. Save up for new bike.||c722061|

|Your upgrading depends on how serious a cyclist you have become and are becoming. The Sora group caters for beginners. Your current frame and wheels probably do so too. If you upgrade to a Veloce gruppo(and Campy compatible wheels), the result may be a bit lobsided. You could ride it perfecty well while saving up for a more suitable frame. Take care not to develop a desire for more upgrades too soon or you'll regret going up only one step at a time. Because if you catch the bug proper you may want to go for a Centaur or even a Chorus gruppo with a matching frame...
I'm not too keen on Shimano myself. Its chains are not too strong; if anything breaks, spare parts are not available contrary to Campy. Campy looks better, (is) sounds and feels more robust.
Good luck. Luke. amsterdam. www.iwaarden.com
