    Depends entirely on how much you want to spend and if you want to stick with a hardtail.

    There is not much wrong with the vengeance that a better set of forks and some light weight tyres wont put right. How much were you thinking of spending on your new steed ?

    I love my 2014 vengeance to bits.. Done over a thousand miles on it!

    I put better lighter tyres on it almost immediately as the stock oem kendas were shockingly rubbish. That helps!

    The forks are censored too, but not game ruining but a decent replacement will set you back the best part of 200quid..ouch!

    I guess you nnee to look at what you want to do that your bike is holding you back with..

    ..

    New, maybe, second hand forks that are a vast improvement on OE can be bought quite reasonably priced, Ive seen rebas for sale for 70 quid , my Toras cost me £40
