The Giant Iguana is my first mountain bike, and whilst I was advised that it is a good bike for a beginner, a guy I spoke to suggested that I might need to upgrade a few parts. Apparently, the following parts have to go because they really suck:
- Pedals (generic no-name)
- Front derailleur (Shimano Alivio)
- Front and rear crank covers (both plastic)
- Front and Rear V-Brakes (couldn’t afford the Disc-Brake bike at the time and really needed the bike quickly so couldnt wait)
Any advice on what I should upgrade these parts to? Should anything else change? I plan to take the bike on trails sometime next month, but in the meantime I will use it to get to work.
Thanks in advance for any advice…
