    Huffy's Rock!!!

    Unfortunately I think that when Bradlee's went out of business all the info on the Gila went with them. In the meantime if it is working ok just ride it until something breaks and then figure out how to fix it. There are many good online resources for how to work on you own bike or you can find a book in the library. I think that you will find most all the parts your bike needs at WalMart or perhaps a True Value Hardware type store?

    Bradlees went bankrupt in 2001 so I would bet it is that years model. Because it is a newer Dual Suspension type bike you might get more info on the DH forum of MTBR than here on the Vintage, Retro and Classact one?

    Keep the rubber side down.

    You obviously care about your bike, and that's the first step. Problem is, they don't make parts to fix that might break, other than the branded gear and brake parts, tires, tubes and cables. The frame, shock, suspension fork etc are unfixable, designed to be thrown out and replaced when dead, actually, that's really the cheme for the entire bike, honestly (which is a sad statement on how our country thinks of bicycles...). It's not a bike with any great value, but if you like it, ride it till it dies, and buy something a bit higher end, if you want longer term serviceability. BTW, the DH board will be a shark tank, featuring you as the chum, Bigwheel's just being a gentler, kinder sort of shark
    This is a Pugs not some carbon wannabee pretzel wagon!!
