Posted this on the beginners forum, but they suggested i move it to here.
I have a 2000 GT Outpost (http://www.bikepedia.com/Quickbike/B...post&Type=bike) that I use to ride pretty regularly in college, nothing really severe, but after graduating I got busy and then in 2004 I tore my ACL/MCL in my right knee and then in 2009 I had microfracture surgery on my left knee.
I've always been a big guy (6'5") but after ballooning up to 260 and feeling my knees get worse with that weight I'm determined to get back down to something respectable.
I've been riding my bike around Lake Hefner (paved road) for those familiar with OKC, and I haven't had any problems with it. Some guys in my office go trail riding once a week and I would like to join them. Problem is that my shock is practically worthless.
Any suggestions on replacing it (probably need to replace the stem as well)?
Or should I just buy a new bike? I'm on a limited budget ($400).
