    Upgrade advice

    Ok everybody I need you to tell me if this upgrade is a good idea. I have two bikes. First I have a Klein Q Carbon with a Tiagra/105 mix 9 speed. My Kona Jake has a full Sora 8 speed kit except for a 9 speed Tiagra rear derailleur. I am planning on upgrading the Klein to full Ultegra (a little at a time as my pocketbook allows). My plan was to move the Tiagra shifters from the Klein and put them on the Kona. All I need besides 9 speed shifters is a 9 speed cassette. Right? Anyways....do you guys think this will improve my Kona drastically. Or do you think my money would be spent better another way? Thanks for all your help.

    The 9 speed shifters and cassette should be all you need but sometimes 8 speed freehubs won't fit a 9 speed cassette. Double check your freehub with the 9 speed cassette first.
