Should I commit to buying one?

Hello, Iím 18yo and still in high school. Iím also a bigger guy (6í3Ē 270lbs). I have a job and make decent money for still being in high school and have no bills to pay
I have a fixie in my garage that Iíve had since 12yo, but now itís too small and has two flats. I havenít rode in a while, but I wanted to get back into riding my bike around town. Iím because itís too small and Iím a bigger guy, should I sell my current bike to buy a new one (would also like some good, cheap suggestions), or should I get newer parts for the one I already have?

Howdy, any progress since you posted?
Hoping you went with a frame that fits you better if so.

If it's too small you'll just end up hating riding it. Invest in a new bike, if as you say you have the budget, there's tons of companies selling complete bikes for around $500 if you can afford that.
