    First old Sweet Spot bike

    For a rear shock, Cane Creek makes replacement shocks for just about anything...I recommend contacting them. They also offer a $100 discount for your old shock.

    For a front fork, an 80mm travel fork will fit just fine. If your going to stick with V-Brakes then make sure it has brake post mounts. The Rock Shox Tora is a nice bang for the buck fork.

    As far as mechanical you mean new V-Brakes or disc brakes?

    The All-Mountain versions came with 100mm forks, so those will be ok, too. I have a period 100mm SID on mine that came off of one of my Bangers. I also obtained a Risse Racing rear shock that I'll try out once the season starts up again. You need 5.5" I2I and 1.25" travel. Many of the companies that claim to fit shocks to this bike only sell 5.5" I2I and 1.0" travel. With the motion ratio on that bike, you lose 0.75" of wheel travel from that change. I wouldn't do that myself, but I'm a devoted wheel travel guy. YMMV
