Hi all, in 2010 I purchased a Giant Rincon from a local bike shop and have used it off and on the last two years. Now I have come to find out that there a quite a few DH and AM trails around/nearby and I'm on the quest for a better setup. My question is... Would it be worth it to upgrade the parts (stem,bars, brakes, forks etc) on my hard tail or just wait and save up for an actual DH or AM bike. I'm a big rookie to the pedal bike stuff (DH/AM etc), but it looks like great fun and hopefully something I can get the kids into.

Thanks all,

I'd say make small upgrades to keep your stoke up. But in the big picture be saving to buy a full suspension bike.
