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.

    Between these 3, which one would you choose?

    Hi,

    so, between these 3 bikes, all in the same price range (with trek being a little bit more expensive) which one would you choose for me?

    2013 Fuji Nevada 29 1.7 vs 2013 Specialized Hardrock Disc 29 vs 2013 Trek Wahoo

    i am 191cm/6'2 tall, weigh 87kg/192lbs and will use the bike for going to and from work (in the city) and on weekdays will be driving on muddy/rough terrain (rocks+sand)

    i decided on 29er cause of my height

    but is it better to buy a entry level 29er (like the 3 above) or go for similiarly priced 26er (like trek 3900)?

    Thanks

    Trek. If spech has a 100mm travel then it would be the spech.

    does fuji have the worst components out of those listed, hence not even considering it?


    and does spec have better components compared to trek? does 20mm of travel make such a difference?

    thanks!

    The components are about the same. I just prefer the g2 geometry.
