Raising the dead (1997 Schwinn S-30)

Long story short I purchased my S-30 in 1997 for about $900 in Maryland and rode the heck out of it for about a year. When I moved to Florida in 1998 I did not have the time to ride and it has sat in the garage since then. I now want to get back in to riding on a daily basis, and I love my bike. I did a visual inspection of the bike and everything appears to be in good shape. There is a little surface rust on the cables but thats the worst of it. I am planning on taking it in to a local shop for an overhaul and want to know what all would be involved in that. It is also has a full suspension. (Rock Shocks / Indy C front and Deluxe rear). Is there anything special I should ask for or look out for with the suspension or in general?

Thanks for your help!!!


I have been browsing the board and I feel like a noob again

No, you've fairly well covered what needs to be reconditioned
in your post. Just have the shop pay attention to the lubes
that are used as they might dry out a bit over time.
