I just posted pics of my '95 Miyata Trailrunner alloy (JPN) on the reader's bikes, and I have a few questions about upgrades. First, should I even bother upgrading it? I ride the mountain bike trails at Cameron Park here in Waco, Texas. My first thought was to buy a Rock Shox fork from ebay, but I don't know what specs I should be looking for. Do I need a threaded fork stem? How long should it be? Is a front suspension even a good idea on this bike?

If anyone has any ideas about how I can upgrade, please let me know. As you can probably tell, I'm a newbie mountain bike enthusiast. I've been riding mountains for many years, but never gave it much thought, other than how fun and challenging it was. To be honest, I don't know enough about bikes to know if I have a good bike or not to even bother doing upgrades.

Any help would be appreciated.
