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.
mtn. biking 101
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.

    Behold.. My new (to me) ultralight climber.



    Here he is.

    Easton Ultralite Frame
    Full XTR (Crank, shifters, brakes, etc..)
    Shock Shox SID Race fork

    Pretty excited. Paid $500. Around 20 miles ridden.

    Leejin, the reason the picture didn't show up is because at the time of your post, you were below the 10 post minimum that mtbr needs before it allows pictures. You're very close though, so go post in a few more threads, and come back and get that picture up. We'd love to see it.
