Thanks to everyone who replied to my earlier thread. Decided to go with the rockhopper. My shop will let me trade out parts (discounted, I presume) before I take it home. I know that in other threads people recommend to wait until something breaks before upgrading but I think I have a good opportunity to save some cash in the long run. Can anyone recommend some specific upgrades that provide the most bang for your buck? Is this frame worth pouring more money into or should I just be happy with it as is and ride? Thanks.
