upgrade fit pro

My birthday is coming up soon. I don't really want anything besides stuff for my bike right now. I can probably spend around $200-$300. Nothing is really broken on my bike, besides that it makes a noise when i pedal and it gets a bit harder to pedal in the same spot every time. I know I'm getting 2 headset spacers. What else do you guys think I should get? The only thing that I changed is the front tire (primo dirt monster) and I took off the gyro.

New tires and maybe a new backwheel and sprocket. Everything else you should just ride until it breaks, which shouldn't be too long. Everything on my Fit is falling apart.

Good option. His bike isn't in ruins yet, though.

if its harder to pedal at one point, your sproket is probably bent. buy a new one.

Mine is harder to pedal at a certain point around. I just have my chain loose (not a good idea but it works). My sproket doesn't seem bent all that much though.

The rear wheel on my bike doesn't spin perfectly. It wobbles just a tiny bit (that wouldn't be what is affecting the pedaling would it?).

i suppose its a little of everything. my sprocket has a slight bend so i just assumed thats what was making it harder to pedal at one point.
