So I finally bit the bullet and picked up my first full suspension bike yesterday... a Scott Spark 50 from last year. Ended up paying 1500 which seemed like a pretty darn good price point.
I got to finally take it for a spin on some local Vermont single track today and man... coming from an eight year old Trek 4300 this feels like a big step up. Very comfortable ride, climbs like a champ, and I loved the Twinloc lockout. As these were some of the more technical trails I couldn't be more happy with my purchase. I even got my first trip over the handlebars outta the way!
But also, as my first fs bike, I'm not sure if there's anything I should know about maintenance, preload, etc. that I'm currently unaware of. Do you all have any tips for unexpected stuff that a new bike owner should know?
