    2013 trek superfly elite al upgrade help?

    2013 trek superfly elite al upgrade help?
    I am wondering if I upgrade my bike with a rear thru axel and a frame welded derailleur mount are these things worth an upgrade or should I just leave well enough alone?.
    This is my first post and I am new to mountain biking and could use some help
    Thanks Dave R

    Hi Dave. I do not think you would notice anything about these two upgrades. Welcome to Mountain biking.

    Nothing really to upgrade on this bike -- just ride it lots.

    Only worthwhile upgrades would be weight-related. Those Trek Alpha aluminum frames are quite heavy, but strong like bull. Ride it, improve your skills and when you feel ready - get the Superfly 100 Elite carbon, for an out-the-box weight reduction of nearly three pounds.

    Dave--a general Q: How are you liking your Superfly? I'm thinking about the same bike (2013 closeout for 2k) or a Giant Trance x 29er-1. LBS would have to order the bike (TREK has a bunch in backstock) so I was wondering if this bike would accommodate an XT 2-by rather than the 3 it comes with and just upgrade the pkg. before assembly. Cost too...anyone...Bueller... This is my 2nd post, Welcome!
