    Hey Bo ,
    I am a retired old school racer (circa 1984) and one thing I found out is it's the little things that really make the difference . Here are some up grades you can try first :
    1 . 180 mm three piece cranks
    2. wider bars
    3. ride ride ride
    I know I did not like to hear that then eather . But if you REALLY need a new bike I would look at the Red line , MCS ,GT , DBR , Specialized , Trek , or Haro . With your size you will want a standard size . Don't go for the xx , they will be to long for you and manuals and speed jumps will be harder to do . If you need any more advice . Feel free to e-mail me . I also will be running e bay items shortly . so check us out .
    Stay rad
