    Congrats Artios!  I think the front end is the weakest point of this bike based on my own experience and reading other posts here on the forum.  Several have reported wheel bearing issues and many (including me) are unhappy with the front suspension.  Though bearings are cheap and easy to replace.  Suspension upgrades are not cheap but still seem to be an easy project.
