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.

    bar ends for monkeylites

    according to eastons site, bar ends are ok. im wondering if anyone out there uses bar ends on their monkeylites and if so for how long and any problems you've come across.

    I used these on a set of monkeylites I overtorqued the stem and cracked the bar so they have been sitting around the house for a couple of years
