I currently have a Trek Alpha Aluminum 6500 and so far, it's been a great bike! But I'm wondering how far I can actually go with it. Mountain biking is definitely something I'm getting into and I've been riding my bike stock for a while now. I'm planning to upgrade the drivetrain, brakes, and suspension fork before the summer ends but I guess I feel that my bike is limited because it's a hardtail.
What are your guys' take on this? I'm not big on huge jumps and whatnot, but I'm rather someone that likes to tackle on trails with the occassional jumps here and there. Is what I have good enough for all that? Thanks for the input in advance!
BTW, here's a picture of the whip!
