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.

    Advice on used 2010 Gary Fisher HiFi Pro, good value?

    Hey MTBR.com!
    I've found a used Gary Fisher HiFi Pro at a LBS, it's in good condition and my size. They want $1500 for it, which is a bit pricier than I was hoping, but if it's a good deal I'll find the cash. Here's the specs:

    Frame: Gary Fisher HiFi Pro with Genesis 2.0 (6061 Alu)
    Fork: Fox F100 FIT RL 29 100mm travel 51mm offset
    Rear Shock: Fox Float RP23XV, 7.25" x 1.25", 100mm travel

    Transmission: SRAM X9 levers, Shimano XT direct mount front mech, SRAM X9 rear mech, Shimano XT FC-M770 Cranks, Crank Bros. Candies pedals

    Wheels: Bontrager Rythym Elite

    Sounds good to me. Do you want a full suspension cross country bike?

    They had problems with cracking. I'd look somewhere else, unless you planned on being easy

    Bit of an idea of what it's worth.
