hi there i new to all of this but have a keen interesting in getting out on my bike anyway to cut a long story short i knackered my bike up so went out and just got the Rincon until i can get the money together to replace it with an xtc. Anyway thats a little way off and been wondering what little upgrades is possible on the Rincon for now.

    For now just get new tyres, (kevlar beaded ones) and comfortable contact points. Don't get hung up on upgrades already! Upgrade as parts wear out.

    As Supersonic says, contact-points first.

    Get a comfy saddle (I use a Charge Spoon), some decent lock-on grips (such as Odi Yeti's), and a pair of pedals which suit you.

    Giant's standard Kenda tyres leave a lot to be desired too, so something like Panaracer Cinders (steel-beaded pairs are pretty light and cheap too) should be a big improvement.
