How many months have you been riding your bike? What is causing you the most problems?

If you answered: "I bought a '05 DK Cleveland last week, I rode it around awhile happy with it." Then go ride your bike and stop spending your money on upgrades you don't even need yet!

What a waste of money it is to upgrade parts that work perfectly fine right now. The stuff on your bike is great, there is nothing wrong with it at all, so WHY do you want to upgrade? Do you know what you want in your handlebars? How much rise? Width? Sweep? If you are going to change stuff up on your bike, then you should know what you are looking for, then get kick a$$ parts to put on that will actually last you a while.

Yes I do want to pimp my ride. The bike workd great but it nds more. For Bars I want dyno style i saw a set on Dans comp for $60, and for pedals i was looking at the DK Iron crosses, Actually i was looking at the Crupi ones until the saw the price. The bike works great breaks work awesome, It has a sealed headset so the headset is good for now, The crank works great. Theres one major flap with this bike, the front hub which is a DK Macho is unsealed, it workd fine but i am gonna change it. Thats about it.
