Trek 730 Road Bike Conversion?
Hi, I'm new to the forum, and I don't have a ton of bicycle knowledge, so forgive me if I don't know something. So I have a Trek 730 that I bought for pretty cheap, and I like it, and it seems to be fairly light. Problem is, when I bike with my friends on their road bikes, I have trouble keeping up, because my bike just doesn't seem to be as fast as theirs. My parents won't let me buy another bike, so I thought that it might be possible to convert this one to be faster. What kinds of parts could I buy (like drop down handlebars) that would make the bike ride more like a road bike? Thanks.
