I'm a college boy looking to have EXTREME fun this summer (this was my first year in college, and it was pretty stressful = a lot of work) to make up for the countless hours i sat in my desk chair studying for chemical engineering (who knows, maybe one day, i might develop a crazy composite material for the bikes of the future??? :-) )
For the last, eternity, i've been a weekend warrior, tackling light trails... biking to the nearest lake... biking on road... max 10 hours per week.
But all of a sudden, i have an urge to tackle obstacle-ridden trails and real offroad conditions (no freestyle please... don't wanna kill myself intentionally jumping over a cliff).
My $$$ limit was around 700$ and i decided to purchase the 700DS after looking through bikesdirect for 5 straight hours. I felt that it was a sturdy, dependable, and well built bike that will "absorb" the shock of my mistakes (a.k.a n00b crashes), and that it will last a long time as long as i get it checked up every now and then at the local bike shop.
Well, just today, i found out that i got the summer job i wanted. It's short (only for the month of July... so that i have more time to bike over this summer ), and i'll get enough dough to not only pay for next year's textbooks, but also spare change for any addon/upgrade components i might want to configure onto my new 700DS (if i knew i was going to get this summer job, maybe i should have went for the Fantom series? nah... i like the 700DS).
Anyways, any suggestions for upgrade components? (price cap = 200$).
and did i make the right choice going with the 700DS?
(sorry for basically writing an essay and giving my life's story )
