    What should I do?

    This is going to be my first season of cross racing and I was planning on buying a new bike. However, the financial situation has changed a bit so it wont be as easy to do. (Just bought a house)

    Right now all I have is a stock single speed bianchi san jose.

    What would be more bang for the buck? Upgrading the san jose to make it more race worthy or buying a cheaper cross bike like motobecane or something? Im also keeping my eyes on the used market.

    Would it be a bad idea to start off racing single speed?
