    what gear shifters are you planning to use ? can't use the ones you've got.
  • I know the shifters wouldn't be compatible but I haven't decided on shifters yet as they're all so expensive

    My honest view would be , don't bother with these upgrades unless
    you are also planning upgrading the forks(alloy I believe?) and the wheels/brakes etc.
    Am not trying to denigrate your bike but it's a budget bike and unless you are upgrading everything there is little point in going to Ultegra 10 speed drivetrain on itsown- it won't give any noticeable performance gains.
    My first upgrade would be the fork THEN wheels THEN groupset.
  • No worries I know it's a budget bike, it was bought for commuting before I really got into cycling and knew anything about bikes so I'll probably just hold out until I can afford to buy a better bike!
  • Just out of interest because I still don't know an awful lot, why would upgrading the forks be most important and give the most performance increase?

    you have an all alloy fork which is a fair bit heavier than a carbon fork and the ride quality is better with the carbon fork, it softens the ride to some extent. an alloy fork gives a pretty harsh ride.
    Seriously, keep the bike for commuting/winter use.
    Get a nicer bike for the summer if /when you can afford/justify it.
