Hello everybody. I'm new to this forum, but after reading many posts, I figured this was the best place for me to get some help.
Recently my son-in-law started going riding with me and my son. He got a fantastic deal on a Schwinn Firewire 5.0 Dual Suspension bike at Target for $199. Now that we have been riding for quite awhile now, he was asking questions about upgrading it. I am not very familiar with BBB's, so I came here to try and find answers/help. The 2 things I noticed the most listening to his comments, are the front and rear shocks (mostly the rear). So that is where I want to focus helping him upgrade.
I cna handle the front fork upgrades easy enough, but the rear is giving me fits. I can't find any useful information on the rear shock, and trying to size a decent replacement is driving me crazy. Any helpful advice or pointers would be a blessing. Mostly I am looking for shock measurements and possible upgrade paths if anybody has done them already.
