Just joined the forum after spending many hours reading posts.
I need some advice.
Recently purchased a Diamondback Lux for the wife for a great deal $$ off of Amazon.
Now I would like to upgrade some of the components.
Its a 7 speed hard tail.
Shimano EF51 7 speed shifters
Shimano Altus rear derraileur
Shimano Tourney TX50 front derailleur
Suntour XCT front fork with soft spring
My aim is to change out derrailleurs depending on your advice.
Then the fork if she doesnt like it, its very heavy!.
We ride mainly road (about 30miles a week) but do go advanced single track now and again at the weekend. Hard packed small rocks and tree roots no jumps. She is excited about the new bike but I am a little leary about the components.
Kinda thinking of sticking with the 7 speed cassette.
She is 125lbs and athletic.
Any suggestions for the drivetrain and fork ?
I have seen XCR forks for $100 new on ebay but have no experience of new stuff. My budget is $200 to $250. Bought my last bike 10 yrs ago.
