Yeah, it really depends on what you think is suitable. Do you personally think your deraillers are okay? What about your shifters. First make everything work well, rather than upgrade on working parts, I would say.

I would go with KionaRider on that one. But I wouldnt use the sram grip shifts but the triggers instead.

Its a nice bike and all, but the deraillers arnt the best, they are kinda iffy.... the shifters could be changed.... and i could use some new pedels and a crank. i will prolly get a new handelbar and stem
