First, Merry Christmas to all and happy riding in 2010!
Woke up Christmas morning to find this Fuji Nevada under the tree! I believe it is a 2005.
Info: Fuji Nevada on Bikeapedia
Surfing around it appears others say that even though it is a low end bike, it is an upgradable frame (the only way I can have a great bike right now, a few hundred $ at a time). It does have a 1 1/8" head tube that my old Giant doesn't.
First question: what are your thoughts about this...is it a waste of money to build up this frame? The only thing that worries me is the area in the photo. This does not look strong to me:
Granted, I do not do a lot of jumping, yet, but I hope to increase difficulty as my skills improve. Right now general "Mountain biking" and trail riding at slow speeds (I assume).
Question two: assuming this is an upgradeable bike, I need help coming up with a game plan to upgrades. That front fork (SR Suntour XC6 with 70mm travel) I would think is first to change out. This thing is pretty heavy: 31.6 lbs
Other hints? Suggestions?
Thanks in advance,
