Shimano 2300 vs sora 2013 spike
I am new to road cycling and I am about to buy my first proper bike. The question is whether to go for the basic Shimano groupset (on at £) or spend the little bit extra and buy the Shimano Sora groupset (£). The main difference between and Sora is that the Sora has.
Shimano vs Shimano Sora — BikeRadar
Some say the shimano isn't really worth buying, that i should at least IMO the biggest disadvantage with the / Sora groups is the thumb tabs .
I think the question is not vs but rather vs Ultegra. Just wanted to point out the Sora shifters have done away with thumb shifters.

They all get upgrades every year as technology grows, but they ALL do the same thing and do it well. If the sora thumb levers are too bothersome you can of course always upgrade them to later, and you can find some inexpensive derailleurs on ebay along the way.
Usually the issue isn't acknowledging that is "better" than the Sora or stuff, but the issue is what level of bike is affordable for a person.

If it were a choice between Shimano 9 speed vs 10 speed I'd say go for the upgrade because that makes things easier for upgrading in the future, but 8 vs 9 is probably not worth it. I really like the ergonomics on the SRAM levers best.
Maintenance is the key to the longevity of any bike.
