wow. Yup time to hit craigslist on lunch break and in the evening. In the mean time I'll keep looking at upgrades and doing some. Those Reba shocks, they make 3 levels of them. Team, Race & SL. What the heck is the difference? I've never seen so many niches under another niche as MTB'n.
My first thoughs were to upgrade items and eventually replace the the frame with a full suspension. Like I said before, I've always done this on my BMX racing bikes... they were always a mish mash of parts, built from the frame up. So I already know my Cheap frame, cheap forks will be phased out... I'll keep some parts for spares, and sell/toss the others.
