I am thinking of upgrading my frame or my whole bike when i begin racing road for the first time this spring. For info on my current rig (the biahchi) check out my website Should i invest in a nice custom steel rig (i.e. ibis, IF, etc...) Let me know what you'd suggest and if maybe i should just keep the frame, upgrade components, or what. Thanks,

Actually , I thought your bike looked quite good for entry level racing. If I were you I would begin my racing career with it, see how things go and if you find that you are doing well and want to continue, then perhaps get a newer machine. I am not sure that a high end Ibis (are they still in business) or IF frame would be my first choice for a race bike though. Although they would certainly be fine. I would probably get a Cannondale or Aluminum Trek or a closeout GT for a race bike. Save a few bucks.
