I am new to mountain biking and I recently bought a Durango 2 and I like it alot. There are some things that I would like to change, like the saddle (firmer) and trying out clipless when they get delivered.

My question is whether or not this frame is worth upgrading. I cannot find weights for it anywhere. Is it the same as the Dakota frame, I assume the Dakota is lighter. Any one got any ideas for cheap upgrades to improve whats lacking (probably suspension, but I am too new to really benefit I'm sure). I'm the sorta person improve it before it breaks, but I like to do it on the cheap.
