Build this up, or start all over?
Here's one for you. I've been out of the bike tech loop for about 6-10 years now, and heres what I'm currently riding. Weighs about 29 pounds.
Shimano Deore LX
Dia Compe Power Control 7 EXA
Manitou Pro A (I think)
Sun Rims Rhyno Lite
Pro Components Bar and stem
Now, with all the new tech that I'm in the dark about, can I update this bike for $500-800 or should I look at something used/new for $800-$1000? I have zero full suspension experience, as hard tail has always suited me fine. And I have beat the absolute crap out of this bike and it keeps on going (although its starting to creak a lot).
I'd like to shave off some weight (keep the bashring though), and get a longer travel fork of some kind. Keep the pedals too.
I use this bike for cross country, downhill, urban riding, and commuting.
