    anap, relax dude, it's during the day and most of us have jobs we are pretending to be doing instead of hanging out on the forums.

    Yes it's a good bike. I wouldn't change a thing until you break it! Upgrade as stuff wears out or breaks.

    If you've got money burning a hole, upgrade the front suspension, then wheels, then.....who knows!

    Naked woman,.....maybe!

    But as impatient as you are, you'd be HIGH maintenance, and I'd have to pass!
