well the rims are single wall, double would be better. Bars and frame are 1020, I would get new bars. Frame, if you upgrade that, it's gonna be expensive, might as well have built a custom at that point tbh. What bike is this, how much did it cost?

Just ride it and upgrade parts as you go. You could upgrade your bars then snap your forks a week later. Just save for when things start to fail. It sounds like everything should be easy to swap out, ie. Integrated headset and mid bb.

Thank you for your replies!

I think I´m going to upgrade my bars to this one WTP Switch. I think the frame is a little bit to expensive at the moment right now.

Thank you!

I'd recommend riding it til it breaks and saving for a newer complete. It will be more cost effective in the long run while you learn the basics for now

48 spline cranks, back wheel/tire, stem, and forks. in dat order. only upgrade if the parts are better don't replace shit with shit. bigger bars if yours are too small.
