I am about to finished my first season of racing in Florida and did reasonably well in my class. Right now I have a 2004 Trek 6700 which I beat the sh*t out of constantly. It is a good bike ( a tad on the heavy side) but I'm not sure if it is worth upgradings. I changed some components (cranks to LX and rear derail. to XT) but nothing else. I'm only 17 and am very interested in racing... I'm not sure if a new bike is needed and if one is, what it should be. Lately I have been looking at the Kona Kula Primo...and I'd like to stay under $2000. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
