Morning,

I've had the trek now for over 4 months done over 500 miles on it.
i'm a newbie on road bike this is my first one, i would like to upgrade couple of parts..

The SEAT cant get on with this at all.

Tyres, would just like to HAVE faster tyres with more grip

Brake pads

Thanks

Ian

    Hi, popular suggestions would be ;

    Saddle - Charge Spoon
    Tyres - Conti GP4000s
    Pads - Koolstop

  • I know this isn't on your list but I just upgraded my wheels on my Bianchi Via Nirone to Mavic Open Pro rims with Hope Pro 3 hubs. Great upgrade, much stiffer and better response all round.

    Hello chunky :D
    Science adjusts it’s beliefs based on what’s observed.
    Faith is the denial of observation so that Belief can be preserved
