I've been biking for my entire life. I've always loved it but its only been in the last few years that I've started to take it seriously. I currently have a 1989 Schwinn World Sport which has been amazing considering that its almost 30 years old and phones hardly feel new after a year. I love it, but the more seriously I take my biking the more obvious it is that its time to upgrade.
I'm totally comfortable working with complex parts and working on my bike but I haven't ever done this before so I was hoping for a little bit of purchasing advice as well as some thoughts on what I should expect and other things like how often should I have my bike tuned up and other basic maintenance.
I'm looking to spend less than three grand. I bike purely on paved trials so I'm basically just looking for speed and acceleration. On average, I bike 50 miles a day, five days a week.
I was looking at some frames like the KHS Flite 750, the Felt F5, or the Fujo Sportif 1.1 but I'm really not sure what to look for in wheels or handles and I'm not totally sure what else I should expect to buy.
Any thoughts or advice is totally welcome!
