Hi all,

purchased a Scott Yecora 2004 a few weeks ago for £90 which is the same as this..


I used to have some beautiful bikes, Kona Coiler, 24 seven slacker, Kona Stuff and a few others, but with 6 years being out of the game and being into road cycling since, I don't have a clue what is regarded as quality anymore!

I want to slowly (and I'm talking slowly, probably a new part every 2 or 3 months, or when they break) start upgrading the bike

Planned upgrades (all second hand parts I'll probably snap up fairly cheap on eBay)

. Deore XT rear mech
. Deore XT front mech
. WTB rocket
. Deore XT chainset
. XT shifters

My question is... Is this bike worth upgrading? The frame seems solid and of good quality. I've completely stripped the bike and got everything running perfectly and it rides a dream.

I know it's a 'how long is a piece of string' string and if I'm happy with it stick with it yada yada ya, but am I wasting my time upgrading this bike? I would LOVE to go and blow £400 on a real nice bike but I just don't have that sorta money..


  • now thats a good buy, for 90 quid its well worth spending another50 or 90 on it, but dont spend muchmore than that or your in danger of having a very old bike thats cost you 500 quid if your not careful

    the deore drive chain isn't bad.

    if it was me, brakes and wheels would be my first port of call.
