Upgrades?

I'm wondering what upgrades I should get for my bike. It's a '03 GT Performer with new grips and a new seat post clamp. No other upgrades. Are there anythings that would be a good to get? I ride mostly on gravel with some wood jumps, and I'll be riding a skate park as soon as I get some time to go there.

Thanks

Just the stock parts now. I don't know what they are. About the money; I don't want to spend a ton of money on it. I'm riding mostly on gravel with wood jumps. Would it be better to save up for a new bike designed more for off road riding?

No, not really. If you don't have three-piece cranks, I'd recommend upgrading to those first. Odyssey, Profile, Solid, and Fly (although the last two are nearly impossible to find at the moment) are pretty much the best out there.

Not the OG Solids, the newer ones, the Hella Lights; they're basically the exact same thing as the Fly cranks.
