The problem is that I won't just upgrade for the sake of upgrading. I don't want ti bolts, or carbon cages, or any of that stuff. I just want(ed) stuff that looks decent and works well (and fits properly) and right now I like everything that's on my bike. It's not the lightest bike, but when I make the bike lighter, I just get weaker to compensate, so I've decided to stop with the weight reduction while I can still walk.

What's itching at me now is the thought of building up an old steel bike. I dunno, maybe I should save my money.
