Hybrid commuter wanting some speed

Hello, I'm currently Indianapolis based and I am moving from Hybrid commuting to more sustained road riding. I joined to get tips for basically everything, especially as I look for a road bike to start out on. Looking forward to learning a lot, here!

Hey JD,

Just put some 28 smooth tireson your bike before buying a new one.

OR buy a new road bike and have 2 bikes.

I'll most likely keep the hybrid, but I really want a proper road bike. I've ridden a few options, and I just loved the feeling I got.
