    What should I get

    Hi there. I recently won a $150 gift certificate to an out of state bike shop through a work sponsored charity. I have all the bike clothes I can use, so I am wondering what some suggestions are. I am presently riding a '04 Trek 4300 with slick tires. I have added Shimano pedals (m520), a rear rack and tavel bag.

    Looking for any suggestions on how to upgrade the bike. Keep in mind, I am a newbie when it comes to components, as such I look for ward to any and all suggestions.

    TIA.

    Here is a better question, what do you want for your bike? If you don't want anything yet hold on to the offer, if it expires see if you can auction the coupon off to someone on here?

    Actually I recently picked up a new mini pump, and the SI-90HR computer/heart rate monitor.

    I was thinking of upgrading components, but this is where my ignorance comes in. What is one of the more logical upgrades to do? My bike is a mountain bike, but I am doing mostly road and basic trail riding.
