The trend in steel tubing has been toward larger diameter tubing. Stiffer I guess but not sure if you'll notice much of a difference. Obviously there are exceptions. If you like your geo and you have some decent butted tubes you would get more from a fresh bottom bracket and light weight wheelset. New chain and light tires will help with that sluggish feeling. If your drivetrain is fresh then just consider gearing down. New simple steel track/track street specific frames are plentiful and cheap if you feel like a change to some modern gear. Life is short - upgrade.
