I have a Giant Iguana that I LOVE!!! Its relatively light, weighing in on a fish scale (LOL) at 35 lbs. I've picked up various bikes at dept. stores and bike shops that weigh more.
I'm not sure how old it is but it has Suntour parts on it and I'm told they went out of business, but I also heard they are back.
I need to replace the complete drive train--chain, sprockets, derailiur(SP), etc...To do it right I need to replace everything but the frame it self, but I can live with the shifters and brakes, for now.
Its still very ridable as is, but the chain jams between the low and middle chain rings.
My question: Is it worth fixing?? or should I spend the $400+ on a new bike--I don't ride that much and I'm leaning toward fixing it, cuz I really like it.
Its 21 speed, if I fix it can I upgrade to a 24 cassette, and what would that entail??
Are shocks worth it?? I heard they add weight, and is that a concern??
