I just ordered a GF X-calibur it is going to be here tomorrow i was just wondering some of your opinions on the xcalibur and what needs to be upgraded on it and whats good or bad about it, so let me know.
If you need to ask what to upgrade do not upgrade anything a new bike. Everyone rides differently.
Different things work wel for different people.
Personally I would put a powerlink on the chain though. It is cheap and it helps with cleanup and mainteance IMO.
What is good about - it's a 29er
What is bad about it - it's a 29er.
Enjoy the ride.
I agree on the immediate introduction of a removable link. Other than that, I would first spend some time on the bike before soliciting suggestions for upgrades. It's a very personal thing. Personally get to know your bike first before making a decision on what is worth upgrading.
