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.

    2008 Devinci Hucker

    Hi. I was in the market for a new bike and with some reserch i found that the devinci hucker was the best choise for the $1000 price range. I was just wondering if anybody has had any experience on these, and how you liked it. I never hear anything about these, but they seem great. If anybody has tried it, is there anything I should upgrade? Any other HT bikes not more than $1200 i should consider? Any remarks are greatly appreciated
    thx

    Depends on what you want to do, for freeride and DH, great bike, for trail riding, not so much, it's way too heavy and doesn't have the right geometry for it.

    Geometry is great for a trail bike....unless you're a hardcore XC racer type.

    Start off riding it the way it is. No point in upgrading for the sake of upgrading, unless you have money to burn.

    Which one are you looking at? the 1,2 or 3?


    Also, Devinci is a Canadian brand. Designed and built in Quebec. My 05 has a hand built frame, not sure about the new Huckers.
