    Don't worry about upgrading right now,just ride and have fun.
    When you ride you should have....
    helmet
    gloves
    extra tube
    pump or co2
    multi tool
    some sort of hydrapack or water bottle
    Thats just to get started,you'll know as you goalong.
    Like a circus monkey on a stolen Harley......

    mtnbiker66 covered it all.

    I have the same bike (minus the disc brakes). I really like it. I picked up a used thudbuster seatpost and put in on yesterday, haven't had a chance to take it on the trails yet.
