Ok here Is the bike I have below, same color and components. Want to up grade to lighter but the cheapest as I can. Such as front Forks and crank and derailleurs.. Keep in mind I was once riding a Mongoose XR 100 from Wal-mart and it worked just fine. But The Yukon FX Rides far better of course.. Just want lighter low cost but reliable upgrades. Would not mind turning it up from a 24 speed to 27 speed if that would be easier to locate better but low cost parts. This is what I have now and I am keeping mine Hayes brakes. They are far better than what I had in the past.. Here are my specs.
