    Ultra n00b question - 2014 Revel 3 a good beginner bike?

    I've been riding a stationary bike for awhile now, and since it's starting to cool down here in Texas (lower-mid 90's), I'd like to get out and ride. Where I live there's streets and even a gravel road (oil field road, no traffic). There's also a mountain biking trail in the area along with a local bike club.

    I was looking at the local bike shop and found (what I believe to be) a reasonably priced 2014 Revel 3. I don't know anything about the mods you guys do (makes my head spin trying to figure out what it all means!), so I was wondering if this would be a good bike to start out on and use a few years?

    Also, what mods, if any, would you suggest I do right from the start? Or is this all just personal preference? Thanks for the help!

    Buy it, enjoy it and ride it until you need a new bike. Not worth upgrading.
