Hey everyone, I just got home with a Trek 400. I'm new to the cycling world, and a friend of mine that works at a bike shop told me to go "80's steel." So I did, anyway I feel like the bike is a little slow, the only other road I've ever ridden was a Trek 1.1 at the bike shop and it was pretty quick, so I don't know if that's a fair comparison.
I'd just like to know if you all have any suggestions for me to increase speed. I figured maybe buying some new gears and chain and all that stuff but like I said I'm still learning. I'd appreciate any suggestions you might have.
