    Fyxation Quiver 1x10

    I have this Quiver 1x10 Road Bicycle | Fyxation bought about 2 months ago.

    The crankset/BB is a no name one (46 tooth chain wheel) and the wheel set is Alex Rims G2000. I already replaced the saddle with Brooks Cambium and I am looking at my next upgrade. What should I upgrade first? The wheel set or the crankset? What specific brand/model of wheel set and/or crankset should I get? With aesthetics, weight and performance considered.

    Thanks in advance!

    Wheels will get you more bang for the buck in any upgrade. Though I wouldn't upgrade your wheels until they are dead or if you can sell them to off set the cost of the new hoops. Rims in the 21-23 range for the wide tires your bike takes, laced to 105 or Ultegra hubs, preferably hand built.

    I would upgrade the cranks on that bike first as it looks like a boat anchor. My choice would be a White Industries ENO crank in black, though it is pricey. You could probably keep your bottom bracket with that crank.

    Yeah, the crank doesn’t look good on the bike. Thanks!

    IMHO - I would just ride it for a while before changing anything else.
    Then update items as they wear out.
    ride long & prosper

    Curious, given there are, at least, 2 definition of 'Building A Bike'..


    Did it have a made in Taiwan sticker on the frame , and the bike was assembled in Milwaukee .

    or do they do their own frame-making in house.?

    They informed that it's made in Taiwan. No sticker though,

    of course that is the best advice. and we could blame the OP's desire to upgrade, if appropriate, on the impatience of youth, but we all know that Harley Davison has made of fortune off the backs of late middle-aged men that should know better than to spend an extra 5-10000 dollars on a 20,000 motorcyle for stuff that is at best an equivalent of what they had already bought.

    soooo, i recommend wheels, then drivetrain stuff. THEN some of the handlebar streamers like, honest to god, i've seen on some Harleys.
