Hey guys, I'm new here so Hi to everyone. Here's my dilema. I cycle to work every day and cover about 2,500 miles annually. I also occasionally ride (light) off-road with my kids at the weekends/weekends. I know it's only a cheap bike, so maybe this forum is a bit speciallised for my question. Probably have a load of enthusiasts flamming me for even asking this question, but for what it's worth, I'd be gratefull for any suggestions I currently have a two year old Saracen Rufftrax 3 (22") as I prefer a mountain bike style of riding rather than a commuter/road bike. After 5,000 miles it's getting a bit worn out. The rear wheel is snapping spokes regularly, the forks are shot, cassette is a bit worn and the gears are really sloppy. But the frame/brakes/everything else is in pretty good working order. So what do you think I'd be best doing? Throwing it in the bin and buying another bike the same for £250 and replacing it on a two year cycle (no pun intended) or throw some of my hard-earned and buying a new rear wheel, gears and forks for it? I think I can get a rear wheel on ebay for about £35. So, what forks and gears would fit? I don't need racing spec stuff, but I'd like something that will last or at least be able to rebuild. I've asked about the ride-to-work scheme but my company does not subscribe to it.
