after some years of not owning a bike i got one for my birthday last week .
it is a Genesis V2100 made by Kent international .
It came unassembled so i had to put it together my self, after some adjusting to the brakes and shifters i got it to work perfectly .
First off i think the bike is great it held up fine the first time i went for a spin in some rough to moderate trails, considering i am on the heavy side (260lb).
i feel this bike has some potential to be even better, that's why i ask to you experienced riders to give me some pointers on some upgrades i can do to this bike without having to spend hundreds of $$$, i dont know much about the components the only one i noticed that has a brand name is the thumb shifters and derailleur say tourney made by shimano.
so again how can i upgrade this bike (shock, wheels, tires, brakes etc.) without spending lots of moneys $$$
