I would check to see if the teeth on the 6 and 7 gear are worn.

Have you ever put a new cassette on it? Chain?

I assume that since it's done it since new that the chain isn't skipping, but maybe the 6&7 sprocket don't mesh well with the splines. If you've put a new cassette on it and it still does it, then it must be either inside the freewheel, or the splines are jacked.

Is the frame worth all new components? ( no cracks)
Can you find new pivot bearings? (probably the root cause of the popping)
Can the rear shock be replaced? ( to old )
Can you live without disc brakes? ( no attachments points)
Can you spend a lot of money on this bike? (your call)

One NO, put it on the curb on garbage day!

I have a brand new Giant XTC and it was doing the same thing today. Taking it in to see if they can figure it out this Saturday.
