Upgrade bike or drivetrain?
Pretty New to mtn biking, been just a roadie, I bought a 2011 hard rock sport 29er, great shape on CL for 400$, really like offroad riding, I'm looking to upgrade the stock drivetrain and maybe the wheels, local guy bought a 2009 cdale 29er 2 as a leftover mid 2011, rode with us a few times, not into it, sticking to the road , he's looking to sell the cdale for 875$ about 1/2 what he has into it, ( added pedals , seat, shoes etc) he's firm on that price.
I've riden it and like the lefty alot, it's a sweet bike, and I'm thinking, would I be better off buying his and flipping my hard rock or putting a few hundred into my hardrock ?
Thinking with the cdale all I would eventually do it dump the triple crank?
Any opinions either way?
