Hello, I'm obviously new to both the forums and to mountain biking (one year of experience); I'm basically just looking for some guidance with a upgrade path for my 2008 Specialized HardRock Sport 21
-short story, skip to next section if you prefer-
So last Monday I was mountain biking on my local trail and I crashed on the way down. I broke my rear derailleur and messed up my front break (haven't really looked at it, it just not as it was before).
I've never really considered upgrading any parts of my bike until after my last crash.
I'm 100% happy just get my bike back to its working conditions, but I want to know is my bike worth upgrading its components or I should just get a cheap rear derailleur (I got my bike for 200$).
What kind of rear derailleur would you guys recommend me to get? Any other recommendations?
I'm currently riding 20-30 miles a week and I plan to continue riding my local trails and will hopefully work my way up to the more advanced trails. I'm really just a beginner trying to soak up as much info as I can from sites like this one and the bike savvy people around me. There is so much info out there that it's a bit overwhelming.
Please let me know if I've left out any information that would assist in recommending an upgrade path.
Thanks for your time.
