Hey guys, I've realized that my budget is tighter than I thought and I'm looking at a Used Ibex Atlas Sport. I know its a silly question but how upgradeable are they? Also how is the frame on the sport?

The sport, expert and pro all have the same frame, but different components. I have a sport and love it. Though I am starting to upgrade a few things. If you want to see what can be done with a sport do a seach for JakePay's Sport. He really tricked that thing out.

quick question... what helmets do you guys recommend, So fasr I think Im going to try and find a Giro Xen on the cheap.
Here you go on the Giro Xen

Another one i'd recommend would be the Fox Flux... More protection than a normal XC helmet...

If you wanna get a fullface helmet, Fox Rampage is very nice. The one i'm on which is the THE One is also very nice... 661 Evolution which was just released is another one to look for. Very impressed with the carbon one i saw at RideSFO...
