The unemployment rate in my area (and the whole country) is very high, so right now I am jobless. I've been looking for a job and I have not received a response from any of them so I am strapped for cash, but I am itching for a road bike and a new light set. However, that would cost a good two grand to get what I want. Right now, the majority of my money is going towards college, books, a bills, which leaves me with little money for anything else.
Right now I have a Trek 7.2FX. It's a great bike, but I had this feeling that I would but it and want a road bike after a few months, and damn, I was right. I was thinking about turning it in to a road bike, but I am not sure if that would work. Other than drop-bars and swapping the fat 35c tires to 25c, what else would I need to do to it? What should I expect to pay to convert it? In the mean time, I will search craigslist for a used road bike while I have wait for someone to make on offer on mine.
