    If you could do one upgrade for the Solo/5010, what would it be?

    I have the RAM model of the Solo/5010.

    I have switched the crankset to XT and went to a single Raceface narrow wide chain ring.

    Right now it weighs in at 28.4 lbs pedals and all.

    If you had a approx. $500 budget, what would you do?


    Thanks!

    +1 - if you don't have one this is a good suggestion...after that I'd get the shock custom tuned by Avalanche Racing.

    Stay away from the LEV internal. I had to return mine for a Reverb. I nor my LBS could get it to work since the cable housing must move to actuate the post and the seat tube grommet won't let it move freely.

    If you don't already have a dropper post, that's the answer.

    If you do, then I'd spend the money on a better (and lighter) wheelset.

    I'd go with a dropper post as well but you might want to consider the terrain you ride first. My second option would be to go with the rim upgrade...
