Hi, I'm just starting to get into mtn biking a lot. I have a Jamis bike which is a hardtail. It is decent, but for this upcoming winter, I'm thinking about upgrading it. This is the bike that I have: http://www.mtbr.com/reviews/XC_Hardtail/product_123372.shtml
It's a 2006 Jamis cross country 2.0
Any suggestions to make the bike lighter, and more fun to ride? Is it possible to get new shocks to give the bike a little more travel? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
