I'm getting a 2010 Rockhopper Expert 29er. I've heard that the Dart 3 aren't very good for trails, racing, and cold weather. My lbs is offering a gently used Fox F80 RL fork for $100, unstead of $600 brand new. He was also going to upgrade shifters and deraileurs to x-7's instead of the x-5's that are stock for free. I am doing racing, but still do riding on singletrack that isn't racing. Should I pay for x-9's or jsut see how the x-7's work.
The brakes seem pretty good too, so is there anything else that I should upgrade right away?
