Re: Trek 1000 upgrade

I want to upgrade my trek 1000 components with something better then sora. I was looking at ultegra group sets(anyone know where to get a good deal on this). But what do you think I should upgrade so I can get the bike into good racing condition. Thanks
The Trek 1000 is an excellent biike - but even with Ultegra or Dura Ace components, it's racing performance will be lack-luster.
It is designed to be the best entry-level road bike out there, but entry level cyclists need different things than racers do. You'll get more bang for your buck if your save your $$ until you can afford a whole new bike. Take advantage of the buying power or a large company like Trek who can get stuff from Shimano at incredibly low cost and package it in a bicycle full of value for a great deal.
If you're really itching for a race-worthy upgrade, check out the Trek 2100. 105 STI levers, Ultegra rear derailleur, Tiagra front derailleur, ZR9000/OCLV frame (Trek's high end aluminum and carbon). It's a killer bike with race geometry!
