comment How do I bring an old bike up to speed?
I would also note: Don't spray water on the bike. It can enter the bearings (bad). Get the bike wet, but wipe don't spray.

comment Am I going to get injured mountain biking if I don't have rear suspension?
Risk tolerance has nothing to do with it. A hard tail will, if anything help you to stay within your limits. If you give someone a full suspension bike with 6inches of travel and say have fun they are going to be attempting much more risky things than the same person on a rigid bike. I would probably argue that a hard tail may be a safer bike for beginners.

comment How to achieve a tighter turning radius?
Outside foot down (pressing the bike down), inside foot up. -- Also probably a good idea to keep the inside foot unclipped so that you can do a foot tap if the rear end starts to slip out. Not a bad idea to practice this before you need it.

@JorgePM Any progress on this? Would be very interested to see the final result. I am facing the same problem right now and would be interested to see what you decided on.
