The flywheel is a great improvement. You will also do well to change the bars at your height:

Otherwise, buy a high quality chain NOW, before the piece of trash the bike comes with destroys two otherwise usable sprockets, and get a front tire suitable for the soils in your area. The one it comes with is suited only for extremely hard soils.
