    0's a 2001 model, 7000 series frame, full didn't take me long to realize i was too old for tackling the serious trails, so i had the local bike shop change the stem & handlebars to give me a more upright ride, added a more comfortable seat, went to 26x1.5 tires for more speed on hard surfaces, and changed the gearing (geared one lower & one higher than the stock)...i go on 13-15 mile rides 1 to 3 times a week...

    I like it pretty well but wonder if i would notice a big improvement with a new hybrid or
    comfort bike? (i average 13-15 mph on my rides)
