New Guy From Alberta Canada

Hey all,
I'm a 13 year old biker whose looking to improve but is stuck on tricks to do. i've mastered the catwalk and endo - endo reverso, but thats my limit. I ride a Shwynn Hera Dardtail bike. its a good bike for the price it is and it fits my budget.

Hello Mtnbiker, as long as your bike fits your needs, it is a good bike for the price . I don't know if it would be worth doing much upgrading, but you probably don't need to do too much to it at the moment. Where do you do your MTBing (other than Alberta--I mean in a park?)?

Welcome to BF!

It depends. Are you looking to make the next bike last for many, many years? Or, do you see another upgrade seven or eight years from now?

Would you be moving to a road bike anytime within the foreseeable future?
