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.

    2013 Trek 4300 made in where?

    Hello, I recently bought a 2013 Trek 4300. I was thinking where is it made? China? Taiwan? How can I be sure?

    For reference, this is the bike: http://buckleycycles.ie/wp-content/u...14/04/4300.jpg

    SOrry but gotta ask, does it matter???? LOL

    Depends on the bike, Trek basically says Asia. So just depends. Look at your paperwork for the bike it will state country of manufacture.

    I know it does not matter, but still wanted to know the exact country of manufacturing. I didnt get the papers coz it was in the display and I just paid and rode it to home. Besides, I am from a south asian country called Bangladesh and warranty does not apply here.
