hey yall, i started riding bout 98. i got a mongoose switchback with mustang wheels, rapid fire shifting. i havent gone riding though for the past 5 years. and am looking to get back into it. my bike needs a bit of fixing, redo shifting wires, break wires and the such, usual maintenance (sp?) that i should of kept up on. anyway, im lookin to relearn the stuff i may have lost and want to figure out what i should do bout my bike, should i get it fixed up or look into gettin a new one. im on a limited budget and pretty much considering my self a beginner again just so i dont go buy a real good one that i may not get all the use out of that it would deserve. i mostly like all mountain riding, and may be interested in some down hill. my bike aint got no suspension or anything so not sure how good it would do off road. i never with too off road with it originally but some. any help is appreciated thanks.
