What in your opinion would need replacing to make a better bike mechanically?
I mean I wouldn't put a ton into the bike but tires are a good choice for performance benefits. Cram the widest tires on there and get something with a good rubber compound or if you are riding it more like a road bike rather than just a fixed gear street bike then a nice soft supple tire will do you well. Obviously a better chain, cog and chainring but that can get more expensive than the bike might really be worth.
