I have been riding this for a long time, got it at the LBS built a relationship etc and been back many times with them pointing me at the newer bikes. The thing is I love my bike and its lasted me more than I could have imagined. Its still completely stock aside from the bar ends and computer. I mostly ride on single track with lots of roots/rocks climbing and descents, just the usual trail. I am looking to begin upgrading components and am wondering where to begin, what would the biggest upgrade impact be item wise. I was thinking I would perhaps look at the wheels but have been told these Alex rims are pretty nice already. Anyway I welcome and thank you for your experienced advice. Here is a pic of earlier today before I got caught in one of those notorious Georgia thunderstorms.
