    1999 jamis dakar comp upgrades

    my old bike is a 99 jamis dakar comp. i'd like to pimp it out for ~$500 give or take a couple hundred. what upgrades do you recommend?
    i currently ride a 2004 haro werx xls, which i like much better. i just want to have a spare for friends, my brother, etc.
    thanks.

    Assuming no upgrades.

    I'd churn through $500 easily with three things.

    1) New cables/housing, chain & cassette (i.e. a Tune Up) - $100
    2) New Fork. $300
    3) New Wheels & Tires $150-$200

    A bit more than the $500 quote, but those three things will revitalize most bikes and make 'em feel much much better.

    From one flat land to another.

    Advocate as if your ride depends on it...
