Unless the plan is to solo off the front and stay gone, the new bike plan won't pan out unless your events are hill climb TT's or fondo based timed climbing segments.

If that's the case, go for it, if not.....then don't confuse desire for something cooler with any functional improvement in 23mph road race.

I don't race much, but I know for sure it ain't the bike. Or the engine frankly. It's the stupid and inexperience that lies between my ears.

Use the money instead to get to and from a bunch of local crits or something your college isn't doing. Or use the money to take weekend trips to the mountains or somewhere fun to ride for training with buddies.

Own a meter yet? Have a TrainingPeaks or other subscription? A coach? Put the money to those.

I make no bones about just being an engineer that likes "gear" and "kit" when I can afford it. It's fun, it's cool. It won't make me win though. I just like it and like to geek out.
