What should I upgrade first?

I just got a Haro Backtrail X2, and I am wondering what I should upgrade on it first. My birthday is coming soon, so I expect to have about a $200 budget.

As of now, nothing is wrong with the bike, but I was thinking of getting some front brakes. I don't know if I really need them, but I guess they would be nice. I was also considering buying a cassette hub and some new rims. I am pretty clueless here, so any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

well for 200 bucks you're not going to get a good set of rims, a good cassette hub and a good front brake set up

Bank that money until you decide what you really need. Of course, that may shock your parents. But if you buy something now just because you have the cash, then break something a week later, well, that would just suck.

no front brakes, your gonna want to get some good wheels, or cranks depending on what kind came stock, but seeing as it's so soon just get some sick sick videos, like the t1 video, or megatour 4
