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.

    alternative to Maxle style rear axles? need something cheap but same spec

    My frame uses a Maxle from Rock Shox, but they are so expensive online, 50-60. Basically they're just a thru-axle with a threaded end. Does anyone know a cheap alternative for these over-priced axles?

    Would really appreciate the help, thanks.

    Nope, don't really know of any suitable low cost replacement. Do you have to replace them frequently?
