Is it worth upgrading an old road bike?

A top-level gruppo is worth instant kudos, so the idea of upgrading it is always a tempting one. And it makes sense enough if only because groupsets wear over time and need replacing. If it’s not completely past saving, the old groupset often makes good fare for a winter bike.

Is it worth upgrading an entry level road bike?

Generally it isn’t worth it as by the time you have upgraded to say a 105 groupset you could almost have bought a while bike. Given that you have only just bought your bike I suggest you just ride it for at least a year and then decide if you are going to continue, and then upgrade to a better bike.

Should I upgrade my road bike or buy a new one?

Should you buy a new bike or upgrade old parts? It depends. If your bike frame does not fit you or it is compromised in any way, or if the parts you are looking for are too expensive, then you should purchase a new bike. Otherwise, upgrading old parts is a totally viable option.

Is 30000 km alot for a motorcycle?

If you were to look at the bikes as being old or the Km you wouldnt want to go over, I’d say between 30K to 40K. This is due to their resale value. It’ll drop heaps after about 30K or 40K on the clock(depending on the type/model of the bike). I think that bikes would easily last 100K if it’s been looked after.
