I love mountain biking in the forest. I ride an old Giant Rincon which i got used about 10 years ago and love this bike, no suspension at all. It worked great until my sister took it out for a spin and she bent my derailleur, so i changed it and my shifter is messed up also. On Saturday i got some used shimano trigger shifters, already installed just have to adjust the cables and see if it runs fine, and if it does i will get a new cassette, chain and crank, and pedals since they are pretty beat up by now. If it doesn't run well, i wont bother with the upgrades and might try find another used giant or something like that.
