Hi all,

I have a 2010 Felt F85, really enjoy riding it but the more I am getting into biking (and reading these forums) the more I want to 'tinker'.

At the moment everything is stock except:

Gatorskin tyres
Reaplaced the 'cartridge' type brakes for the holder and pad type.
Going to SPD soon.
New chain.

I want to upgrade something but don't know what, which upgrade would you guys say offers the most improvement to riding for under £100?

Kind regards,

    If the bike is comfy as it is then...... Half a wheelset??

    Seriously - save up some more cash and buy a decent pair of wheels

    as ^ set of lightweight wheels make big difference
    Gators are very puncture proof but you could try some lightweight tires; Conti GP4000s or Mich Pro3 (now 4) are my favour...your notice the "spin up" difference,
    Other then that its how much you want to spend......

    Stick some Planet X carbon 50s and tubs on the credit in their ridiculously cheap sale. It'll blow your £100 budget but you're not going to get a lot that makes a diference for under a ton - wheels are the next big thing to make a massive difference.
