I want to take part in cycle race, so for that I upgrade my bicycle to 18 gear. (It was not shipped with gears)
Here is my cycle STREET RACER NE 26T. (this is the same model I've, but size may be different)
Is it good idea to use upgraded cycle in race or I should buy new one on which gears are pre installed?
Also is this type of bicycle is ok for this type of race event or I need other one?
Here are some personal detail
I am riding around 20km (in 1 hour) in working days.
40-45 km in weekends and it take aprox 1 to 1.5 hour.
Max speed I rode was 42km / hour (in trafic)
This is first time I am taking part in cycle race event, so how should I start practice for this event?
