Ive got a trek 7.2 FX and Im enjoying short 10 mile rides (just started) at about 15mph-15.7mph. Id like more speed and if possible less effort for more speed. but I dont have the budget for a new decent road bike since I just bought my FX and x-caliber 6 within the last two months. I was looking at entry level road bikes at bikesdirect.com and was wondering if I would see a big difference between my trek 7.2 FX and the inexpensive road bike. this isnt an option to save an buy better later, I have one shot, and its right now for $400-$500, no more.
