    Hi all,

    I've recently sold my trek 1400 and am looking to purchase a hybrid

    I'd like something with decent components, is the Shimano Deore OK? (Not the LX).

    Is the deore equivalent to shimano 105 on road bikes?

    I've seen the Shogun hybrid on bikes.com.au
    http://www.bikes.com.au/p/291755/2007-shogun-mbc-metro-hybrid---50cm.html

    and was thinking of buying it. I'd like something with decent componentry so how does that look?

    Deore should be FINE on a hybrid. Im running 2001 era deore LX group, well except chain and brakes, on my mountain bike and it holds up fine. for pure road, i dont think the small step down to deore will affect anything. 9 speed is a pain to get tune properly, on occasion, but onces its tuned its smoooth sailing :)

    Have fun, and take care!
