    upgrade for 03' jekyll 800

    HI, i was wondering if anyone would like to suggest possible part upgrades for a 04 jekyll 800. Reason why I ask is because I am not too familiar with aftermarket parts being a newbie biker. Any suggestion is appreciated. Oh if it helps I do equal parts xc and single-track trails with drops no taller than 3 ft (I am 5'6" and 150 lbs)

    Get rid of your cannondale seat, then check out some better and lighter pedals.

    I like the fizik models, i use the nisene, but some find it stiff, for something softer try the plateau. You can pick them up cheap on ebay. But go around to your cycle shops and sit on some of them.

    I'm very impressed with the Fizik Plateu. Not only is it very comfortable for me, but the upper surface is suede (I think) instead of polished leather. I have a lot more control over the bike from the extra "butt grip", seriously. It weighs 300 g. so I am also looking for a lighter, non-polished leather saddle.
