Generic racing related question showing lack of experience

Details of personal circumstance or excuses for current situation. Expensive bike description. Slight indication for passionate devotion towards racing. Lack of background details needed for informative replies. Question about unimportant subject depicting lack of specific knowledge around racing bicycles.

Sensitivity towards rudeness.

Suggestion of moving thread to the road biking forum in unique but difficult to understand manner.

Unsolicited grammar correction and/or comical misspelling by OP, like "pubic" instead of "public."
