What should i get?

Hi

I have a trek 4500 2007, with 120 ($235) to spend on it, and i was wondering what would be the best thing to buy. I am thinking of either getting a hydro disc brake or a new fork. Could you give me some advise on what would be the most worthwhile buy?

I am only a biking novice so i dont do anything too extreme...yet.

Thanks

I wouldn't say a new fork. If you want a good one, I don't think $235 is going to do it. Maybe a nice rear brake might be better.

How long have you had the bike? If you don't feel like anything is lacking yet, just save your money and ride it until something feels like it really needs upgrading.
