I would think you'd be fine for a few years with that bike actually, keep in mind that the bicycle industry like every other uses the "trickle down" method with regards to their components......meaning that what is considered "mid-level" today was probably "top-of-the-line" 7-8yrs ago. I wouldn't bother upgrading anything unless it breaks (I used LX shifters on my bikes for years)
I'm not too familiar with Devinci, but I know that Trek for instance has a lifetime warranty on their frames so I'd personally lean towards them IF you can find a comparable price. But it doesn't look bad at all.....my first bike cost me 350 and I rode the crap out if it for a year and a half
Why do you need a custom hitch? uhaul installed my hitch a few years ago
