    My Flightline three is only 2 months old and the upgrade bug has kicked in.

    I just ordered a set of Rock Shox Tora 302 forks to go on my flightline three, can't wait to get it here and install. I ordered from Tree Fort Bikes, the website was incredibly easy to use.

    Another good upgrade is to replace some of those heavy alloy parts. Handlebars, stem and seatpost can all be significantly upgraded without spending big money.

    I was thinking of saving up and upgrading my wheel set / brakes next, but you are right i could probably do handlebars and stem and seat post for fairly cheap. thanks for the idea. I'm also trying to save a little money on the side, to invest in a Fatbike before winter

    Nothing cuts weight like an upgraded wheel set. The only issue is price. Between the new fork and new wheels you are going to more than double the cost of the bike.

    Ya, but it will be a nice ride.

    Picked up some SPD clip less and an new pair of shoes yesterday, that is going to be a change.
    I ordered my Tora 302 from www . treefortbikes . com they price matched another site so they were under $210.00 and they actually sent them to me free. That is a big deal living in Alaska.
    Had to put spaces in the website address because I only have 9 posts and apparently you can't post links till 10 posts... that is dumb.

    Once it's all done make sure you post some pics on the picture thread. It will be cool to see an upgraded FL 3
