    specialized hardrock pro

    i have recently purchased the 2007 hardrock pro
    i chose this as i didnt have that much cash and i dont ever have enough to upgrade much, so it seemed gd as it has decent parts ready built in

    almost as soon as i bought this i was given £200 for gd results in my exams
    lol

    now i hav £200 to upgrade parts on this bike
    the 2 features which people say are bad on my bike are suspension (marcocchi mz race)
    and brake (hayes sole hydrolics)

    im looking at either sum new forks eg rock shox tora? or better brakes eg avid juicy 7s?
    not rly that sure what id require more,

    my riding style is all about speed, over rough terrain and i do quite a few jumps,

    any one know any gd upgrades for less than £200?

    I think that you can upgrade both if you go for slightly used quality parts. You can get Avids BB7s and a Marzocchi MX Pro Eta with that budget.

    If for some reason you cant afford both, I'd say go for the fork.

    Grammar, punctuation, and spelling are your friends. Well laid-out posts will get more responses as they are much easier to read and make sense of.

    I agree with what Ricardo said, especially about slightly used parts. At your price point you're much better buying used for the items you want. Also, you might look at bash guards, chain rollers, and other jumping-specific items.
