Is it worth buying a older Trek Y3 for $150 and upgrading? It comes with Indy Rock Shox and Fox Vanilla Rear Suspension. componets are crap. But is it worth upgrading it or trying to find a new bike or a used for a better deal?

Keep on saving bro. The Y3 is a way old bike, and may not be worth the upgrade $$$. You can get into a used fairly more recent model with decent parts for around $5-600 if you look hard enough.

But if you are looking to get into a bike that will do the job well now... then buy a Hardtail. For the same $5-600 you can get a new close out bike with great parts. It will treat you much better than a used FS bike for the same price.
