recently inherited a '94 sworks full suspension mountain bike.. i think it was the first or close to it. components are '96. I am new to mountain biking and who like to try and make it happen this year. got a few concerns. weighing in @ 245 and my donator was probably 180 soaking wet.
1.) wheels are busting spokes, looks like the aluminum nipples are corroded and that is the point of breaking so i am going to relace the wheels because i believe the rims and the ringle hubs are in great shape. should i rehab or look for some new ones?
2.) suspension is screaming at me everytime i ride it.. hahah frnt forks are nice ( for the day ) carbon legged.. judy cartridge fork and i have been told don't try and rehab them buy new ones and the rear shock is Fox unit ( probably original) that says do not open. Does FOX rehab old shocks? i am old school even thou i am only 33 but i can do it w/ a manual and my tool box.
am i wrong to assume i can rebuild the rear shock and front forks to handly my weight
