i bought a new trek 1000 last week and i've been riding it a bunch around my local roads. it's fun and all, but i feel like my bike isn't allowing me to do what i wanted, ride fast. i row collegiately and have a lot of power in my legs and just feel like i'm not able to go as fast as i want in any gear. i was stubborn not to have waited a couple of weeks to get more money, but i wanted to get into it. do any of you think the shop i bought it from will still take a trade in for a higher end bike?
