1. The most important thing about buying a new bike is to make sure it fits. The only way you'll know if the bike is right for you is to size up the bike and make sure that the bike's geometry matches your body's geometry. Ask questions and do some research.

2. If possible, try to find a shop that will let you demo the bike on real dirt. Five minutes in a parking lot won't cut it. You wouldn't buy a car without a real world test drive, and a bike should be no different.
3. Don't belive the hype. Just because your favorite rider or best friend rides a certain bike, that doesn't mean that's the best one for you. Have an open mind and be realistic about your needs and ability.

    135mm hub rear wheel.. Will it fit my bike? *URGENT*

    I need a new rear wheel for my bike. There is one on an auction - it has a 135mm hub. Will this work with my bike? I don't know what I currently have - some generic formula hub.

    Thanks in advance.

    If it's quick release with a skewer-- then yes. Most likely. What model bike.

    It's an Apollo Ascent 2008.

    Has a QR skewer.

    100% 135 if it is 8 speed with a freehub not a freewheel of 7 or less speeds. although I can't find anything on the bike. If 7 or less it will fit but you need additional drive train parts.
