If you don't know how to assess, repair and maintain a bike, buy a new one.

My other advice is don't buy any bike you can't pay cash for. Going into debt for a bike - when you already have something to ride - is crazy and can I say, not smart, in my opinion.

Ride your hybrid, save your money and buy the bike you can afford. Don't be fooled by people who say - in Shimano terms - that you shouldn't buy a "Sora" or "Tiagara" level bike. They're fine and will serve you well for many years.
