I am looking at getting back into riding after breaking my back over 10 years ago. I have kept my old bike \( 2004 Santa Cruz VP-Free with a 2003 Marzocchi Super T \) and it is dialed in to exactly how I wanted it for my old riding style. The bike has sat basically unused for the past 10 years and I have kept up maintenance on it so I have no concerns about the frame failing.
Overall the only thing I need to change out is the fork as that has taken a beating and I don't need anything that beefy as I won't be doing anything that intense anymore. Is it worthwhile to just get a single crown and adjust the geometry on my existing bike or has mountain bike technology progressed enough that it is more worthwhile to get a newer lower end bike and just keep the vpfree around for posterity?
Thanks for any suggestions
