Well, I finally got a real bike!! I have learned the hard way that walmart bikes aren't real bikes, they just have a name stamped on them!!
Anyways, for the price range I was locked in, I fell I made the best choice. The bike, to me, feels great and the front end is very responsive. It has good snap to it and without really experiencing any true trails, I think this bike has the nimbleness to get me through some fun stuff.
However, with time.. I'm gonna want to upgrade, as I do with everything I own! Now, modifications are very personal to improve what you feel needs to be improved... but, from what it already known, do any of ya'll have real-world suggestions on what I might want to look at in the future?
I'm about 5'11" 200lbs. The bikes as sram x.5 components, with x.7 front D. It also has a DART 3 fork, CST caballero tires, WTB speed disc all mountain wheels and shimano disc brakes. For stock, it's not bad. I did swap the seat and got a value pack with a pump, lights, hand tools, etc. Water carried and bottle.
The trails in south florida, which i know only of Amelia Earhart and Oleta River, They seem to be more single-track, XC stuff, not so much of big dirt jumps, rock beds, etc.
I have read that the wheels and tires would be a good place to start, thus, within a good price range, what would the best, lightest wheel/tire setup for these types of trails?
Anyways, thanks! Cannot wait to get out there. Hope to see some of you guys/gals out at the trails!
