That is a great step in the right direction. How tall and weight is your son? What kind of racing is he looking to do?
I would let him get 6 months of riding and racing in before I do much upgrading and to see how the bike responds to his style. The bike is a huge step up from Mr. Magna, but it is pretty basic for racing. The derailers may be one of the first items that wear out, or the rims. The fork allows for lots of upgrade. Those are some of my thoughts.
For now, I would enjoy the heck out of riding a quality 29er. Once he gets his skills and stamina built up then the upgrades you do will really "accentuate the positive."
I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!
