  • How to choose bicycle components

    Typically, the quality and price of the bike goes up as you choose higher quality components. 

    For less frequent and shorter distance rides, you can choose entry-level components such as: Shimano Turney, Altus, Claris or SRAM X3, X4,

    For more frequent, longer rides, slightly higher level components: Shimano Acera, Alivio, Sora or SRAM X5.

    For training and intensive and long rides, choose components of a higher class such as: Shimano Deore, SLX, Deore XT, Tiagra and 105 or SRAM X7, X9, NX, GX, X1, Apex, Rival and Force.

    For competition, you should choose only the highest class components: Shimano XTR, Ultegra, Dura-Ace and Dura-Ace Di2, or SRAM X01, XX1.
