see jake, ive told you several times you dont need to upgrade parts on a brand new bike
especially one as good as a kink whip

the kink has a fair bit of chro-mo,
is fully sealed,
looks clean
if you have to upgrade the rims to hazards and buy 4 j pegs lights but leave it at that
and buy a video camera

That would be $950+ for a bike... just build something with that much dough. Look for a good clearance frame and go from there, at least that's what I'd do.

i would bet a year, if not more. i doubt you will be doing anything too extreme on it yet. the first thing you will porbably need to upgrade is tires if theyre not rated at 90psi or more....low psi in tires is worse than anything.

EDIT: personally i think forks, stem and rims are the last thing you should replace. maybe get new cranks, tires and pedals. but u definatly wont need anything else.

How many different places are you gonna pose the same question? With the money you got get a nice complete with a CroMo frame. For like $700 you can get a 08 WTP Phoenix Pro that has a full butted Sanko frame and still have $ left over to swap a few parts to personalize it if you wish.

Either a bike is full CroMo or it's not. If not then don't bother with it, plain and simple :).

good idea. take some of that $600 and put it towards a really nice bike.

I'm am truly beginning to think that some of these kids get cash thrown at them to do what ever they please :roll:. I'm glad mine understand and respect the $. Seems they get advice and when it does not coincide with what they want they start or post in another thread requesting answers to the same questions hoping to get a different out come :(.

if you are going to replace all the most expensive parts on a complete bike right away, you might as well buy a higher-end complete or build a custom. the Whip costs $380 at Dans and you have an extra 600? thats $980! you could build a SWEET custom bike for that price.

Keep the money on a credit card or something so as soon as something breaks you can change it fast.
