    Rebuild 95 Marin Rocky Ridge MTB

    I am still riding my 94-96?( forget what year I bought it ) Marin Rocky ridge hardtail .
    Have alot of miles on it. So far I have had to replace a worn out cassette and chains but otherwise it's held up great. I love the bike still and it has become my travel bike so it out alot in the weather.
    I need help picking some componets for a refresh. I have bought some scram cables 1.1mm to fit the gripshift shifters, brake cables and new kool stop salmon pads for the cantilever brakes.
    It really needs a new fork as that old rockshox quadra 21r is shot ... might as well be a rigid fork now.

    specs now:
    mavic rims, 8 speed cassette 11-28, white ind. 22,32,42 front... deore lx derailleurs which still shift ok ... I changed out that weak spring on the rear ages ago..

    Biggest issue is what fork should I get? It has a 1 1/8 tube, diacomp headset... threadless
    Next is should I get new derailleurs? like xt? Not sure if I should change them out since they are old although they still work well.

    could be a challenge to find a new fork with canti mounts, and I'd not go over 80mm travel.

    If you feel like putting some money into going disc up front, I think it's worth it
