Your groupset is an integral part of your bike and has a big impact on both your performance, and the performance of the bike. Making up the drivetrain and brakes, the groupset is a substantial upgrade to make, but if made can make shifting gear smoother and more precise, increase your gear range (i.e. 10-speed to 11-speed), lower the overall weight of your bike and make braking sharper. This can all lead to the holistic improvement of your bike and will make this summer the best summer of cycling ever.
