Instead of pawning your family's sundial from 1100 B.C., to afford a new litespeed. Consider this option, if you want a "new ride"
Buy a garbage bike for 40$.
Take the tire off the front.
now, ride around on the rim. all over town. on rocky dirt roads. Beat the snot out of it. Practice crashing into brick walls with wheels you don't care about. Ride in the rain in the middle of night. I have found when riding on the rim, the yellow and white lines dampen the road vibration better than carbon. Have some fun with your junker.
when you get on your good bike, shwooo, you will appreciate it so much more. It will be heaven.
