Is My Bike Worth Upgrading?

You’ve had a bike for awhile and you’ve decided the bike has some limitations. You want to upgrade it because you like it otherwise. “Is it worth upgrading?” you ask.

Well, it depends.

It depends on what it is and what you plan to do with it. How old is it? Do you plan to keep the upgraded parts longer than the frame?

Road Bike Commuter Project 3

Ok, so I’ve had to shift gears regarding the commuter bike project because the old Trek was just the wrong size frame. I ended up selling off that old Trek and buying an On-One Pompetamine frame/fork. This is a steel 700c road bike with track dropouts and disc brake mounts. It goes so far with the disc brake mounts that they’re the ONLY brake option for this frame. I bought one in a glow-in-the-dark paint scheme (the fork was not available in that color, so I went with black).
