group set

I'm thinking of spending some cash on upgrading what will become the training bike. She is currently a 16speed bike and I was thinking "can I change her to a 9 or 10spd.

I thought about the Tiagra Groupset, nothing fancy as she will be a retired race bike pretty soon.

How easy is it to change a 8spd to a 9 or 10sp, can it be done?

What do folks think about the Tiagra groupset, anyone got it?

    If the bike is going to be retired I would hold onto the cash personally

    if you have to splash the cash use it to upgrade the new race bike.

    the old bike as a trainer will do fine with 16 gears

    I'd be costly as you'd have to upgrade a fair few bits. Don't think you'd see all the benefit really.
