    Dirt Research Owners Group - Should I even bother?

    So am I the only Dirt Research rider out there? Any suggestions on what I should do to my aging bike? Are the parts worth transfering to my wife's Trek 4300 (currently stock low-end components)? If I do I may just get her another 4300 but a WSD version and I start riding that instead (I would also switch out the RST shock with a nicer one) OR give her the new setup and buy myself a new bike.

    OR update the stem, handle bars, shifters, and shock and keep peddling on. I'm afraid the older geometry might not like the newer shock travel.

    Help

    At the very least post pics or config of your Dirt Research rides IF there are any left.

    Specs:
    1996 or 1997 16" Dirt Research Kenai Cromoly frame
    1996 XTR front and rear derailers, cranks, casette, and hubs
    1997 or 1998 XT V-Brakes and XT Brake Levers
    1998 SRAM XRay shifters
    Bontrager Ti handlebar
    Control Tech stem
    Chris King Headset
    SDG seat with Ti rails
    1996 Judy SL with Aluminum stem
    Ringle Moby seat post


    Here's some pics of my bike:
