A little tip from a mountain biker: make sure that you maintain your bike properly by cleaning it once in a while it will make it last much longer. Buy the right lubrication types from a bicycle seller or off the net especially if you have a shock absorber. If you want to keep your chain perfect you will need to degrease it and lubricate it one to four times a year depending on how much use and weather you ride your bike in.

I have been an avid mountain biker since I was very little and used to cycle 22 km each day to and from school. Biking is fun sort of like head-fi once you are hooked you can't let go

EDIT: Just saw that you have had the bike for two weeks, after approximately four weeks depending on how much use it has been getting it is a good idea to tighten everything up like the chain, gears, breaks.
