Junior Racing Questions
I have been seriously cycling for a little over a year now, and I am very interested in Junior Racing. Sometime within the next 2 weeks my dad is taking me to the LBS to buy my first brand new road bike. I figure even a low end $800 dollar bike will be an improvement over my ~25 pound steel Lotus 6 speed bicycle. I do realize that my budget will allow for 2200 and Sora and probably not much more unless I find a sale or buy used. I do understand that the lower end groupsets will get the job done but require a little more adjusting to get the job done. So, my question to you is: Will I be at any disadvantages racing with 2200 or Sora? If everything is properly adjusted, I should be fine, right? I don't know why I'm stressing about this haha, it's all about the engine not the parts right? I just need some reassurance. Oh, I am 14 and I do have a set of Mavic Open Pro's which I would upgrade the stock wheels to immediately if it makes a difference. Sorry for rambling, I just wanted to get my thoughts out and get some advice. Thanks in advance,
