I just picked up my bike on CraigsList. I'm not bad mechanically, but I'm a bit leery about turning and yanking on stuff without knowing where it goes.

I've been looking online for maintenance info, but since my bike is a bit older (mid '90's), the stuff I'm finding online doesn't look like what I have.

So, looking at the attached photo:

(brake related questions figured out, post edited)
3: are there any adjustments I can make to the shocks? Any lockout? Where should I look for those?

many thanks, all.

ok, I figured out the brake (the little round pawl was stuck in place, I just pulled harder).

Shock-related questions still apply, though.

There is not much "adjustment" available on your fork. I believe it's a Rock Shox Jett, which just has the right knob to adjust compression I believe. Other than that, it's buy new internal springs, or a new fork.

For sure no lockout on an elastomer shock, but you can probably buy elastomers (rubber bumpers) of different stiffness or maybe even speed springs.

cool, and thanks!

locking out isn't a big deal, I'm just trying to correlate what I'm reading in modern bike manuals to the bike I just got.
