His journey from the thatched hut I saw there to the shopping centers he has today is something that amazes even myself.

But regretfully, you also caught that debilitating biker’s disease called upgraditis. resize=200,118 200w" sizes="(max-width: 640px) 100vw, 640px" data-recalc-dims="1" / You got a calendar marked with racing events and you gnash your teeth when you don’t make a podium finish. But you’re not willing to rob a bank or become a stripper just to support your addiction. What’s the point of spending 50k on components that bring down the bike’s weight by 5 or 7 pounds (2.3 – 3.2 kgs) when you’re 25 pounds overweight? Although, I have to admit, foregoing all those donuts and lechon will be quite painful. resize=200,62 200w" sizes="(max-width: 640px) 100vw, 640px" data-recalc-dims="1" / Fork (again) A good fork will also make your ride much more comfortable while also improving your performance on the trail. fit=640,251" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-1722" title="Mountain bike suspension forks" src="https://i0com/ But if you really want comfort, I’d recommend getting cycling shorts and jerseys from Spyder. I use their cycling shorts on almost every ride, often under my technical shorts for extra padding. fit=640,311" class=" wp-image-1723" title="Spyder Cycling Shorts and Jersey" src="https://i1com/ You can also zip the front all the way down to suck in as much ventilation into your torso for those unli-uphill climbing sessions. To summarize: If you want performance gains in upgrading from your entry-level components, consider buying 1) better tires, 2) a better fork, 3) clipless pedals, 4) a higher groupset, and 5) a better wheelset, in that order as your bank balance or credit limit permits.
You look at your bike, shake your head, and feel something just ain’t right. (.) Tires Tires are often overlooked in the upgrade shortlist, but they can make or break a race, depending on what race you take part in. resize=200,62 200w" sizes="(max-width: 640px) 100vw, 640px" data-recalc-dims="1" / Fork A good fork will soak up the bumps, so your elbows and knees get some respite. Maybe you got into biking because you like fresh scenery and the joy of long leisurely rides.

You visit bike shops and leave drool puddles on the floor while looking at that shiny new groupset, those blinged out wheels that sound . XC racers usually prefer narrower tires that roll fast but still have enough grip. These affordable tires roll fast on fireroads and hardpacked trails thanks to their closely spaced mid-height treads. A good fork will also have a quick lockout option for the climbs so you don’t waste precious energy bobbing up and down while grinding on the ascents. resize=200,150 200w" sizes="(max-width: 640px) 100vw, 640px" data-recalc-dims="1" /You can instantly raise your seat height to climb more efficiently, and drop it with the flick of a switch for the descents so you can lower your body or lean back and have better control. Perhaps you don’t care for being the fastest guy/girl on the trail and would rather be comfortable instead. Performace gains and weight savings are minimal, but I have to admit they look damn good. resize=640,379" alt="Bike Bling" srcset="https://i1com/ If you want a more comfortable ride, upgrade your 1) saddle, 2) fork and 3) biking apparel also in that order and according to your credit limit. If you’re gravitating (pun intended) towards Enduros and DH events, upgrading your entry level XC setup probably won’t work, and you’ll need an entirely new bike. resize=200,118 200w" sizes="(max-width: 640px) 100vw, 640px" data-recalc-dims="1" / NOTE: Sorry guys, I’ll have to close the comments section on this post.

Mountain Bike Tires " data-medium-file="https://i0com/ resize=640,199" alt="Mountain Bike Tires" srcset="https://i0com/ Aggressive XC racers generally go for 80mm forks since these guys know kung fu with their bike handling. Most podium finishing XC racers use clipless so I guess there’s something to it. resize=200,62 200w" sizes="(max-width: 640px) 100vw, 640px" data-recalc-dims="1" / Groupset Casual bikers can get away with a Shimano Acera or Alivio groupset. I’ve finished two races already on Alivio, and apart from the occassional mis-shift, they were pretty adequate. But if you’re a hardcore racer, a set of lighter, stronger wheels should be in your upgrade list. fit=640,480" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-1719" title="Mountain bike wheelsets" src="https://i0com/ If you’re a guy who cares about his family jewels, you should get a saddle that’s got a hole or relief depression in the middle. Last year I upgraded to the Velo Plush comfort saddle and it made a world of difference in my riding. I could stay longer in the saddle, and could even remain seated despite the bumpiness of the trail. I guess I’ll be a noob forever, but thanks to Carlo I was able to sort through the confusion. fit=640,379" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-1725" title="Glorious Ride Bikeshop" src="https://i2com/
Normal people are fine with 100mm or 120mm forks (if their frame allows it). Of course, you can’t buy clipless pedals without also buying clipless shoes, so this is one purchase you need to really think about if you’re on a tight budget. But serious racers will have nothing less than Deore. Personally, I think the differences between Alivio and Deore are not that significant, but I recently upgraded to Deore anyway, just to get this demon out of the way.

If your OS (Operating System) is Windows 7 and the hotkeys doesn’t run properly, try to run as administrator. I see a lot of people are posting alternative links and their copycat posts / blog in the comments section. LOLSome interesting facts that I can share with you:1.
