Mountain Bikeing – Upgrades for 2007 Specialized Hardrock Sport?

Hello — Last year I purchased a 2007 Specialized Hardrock Sport, It was my first year riding the trails, and I loved it. I do not want to get a new bike, as I still think I am in the beginning stages of riding, but I do like to hit some challenging trails. Does anyone recommend any types of upgrades that I could do that would make my bike somewhat better.

okay i would recommend the following upgrades:

new fork. rockshox, manitou, and marzocchi make great reasonably priced forks which are a step above entry level. i’d go with a new rear derailleur. it will provide you with smoother shifting under stress and will be more reliable in the long run. another upgrade i would consider would be a set of disc brakes. you can go with either cable discs or hydraulic. for cable i’d go for the avid bb7 mechanical brakes. for hydraulic i wouldn’t go with anything except hayes HFX 9’s. tires can make a difference but the specialized tires on your bike should do fine. a new seat could be a smart upgrade for better comfort. that’s pretty much all of the basic upgrades to improve your bikes performance without breaking the bank. hope this helps
