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.

    best forks for a specialized hardrock

    Okay we have specialized hardrock's 07 models and the front forks suck. What the best for the money. I would like to upgrade to a better bike but if i can spend 150 per bike and get better forks than i would rather do that. Me and my fiance both ride so anything we do it is in pairs so it always double cost. Tips on picking forks would be great too!!
