Hey all, First of all does anyone one have this bike, what are thoughts on if so? I recently purchased a Raleigh 500 road sport. It has a full Tiagra 27 speed drivetrain, will I feel a substantial differance if upgrade to 105 or should I just change certain parts, what about weight will there a be a drop in weight as well?
As I recall, doesn't that bike haveOldEdScott

a 105 RD already? My bro-in-law has one, likes it fine.

Don't ungrade anything. It is what it is and it's fine as it is. Save your money for a new bike in a year or two.
