so I bought my first bike in january and really love riding it but feel I could upgrade a lot of the parts on it. I have a peugeot course I believe it's a 1984-6 and I want to start upgrading parts. What would you guys suggest I upgrade first and will any brands/parts fit french bikes? I'm a newb so help me out.

thanks, jon.

they are problably the only thing worth upgrading on a 80's circa bike, other than cables and housing. everything else would be astronomically expensive and not worth the effort. you can redo everything new except the frame for around 600 bucks, but you can also get a new bike without the rust and down tube shifters for the same price.

Any symptoms/behaviors/characteristics you want to change or correct?

That Peugeot is new enough that it likely doesn't have French threading.
