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.

    Bought a Norco Jubei 3

    I borrowed my brother's Trek 4300 and went riding. Had a blast...thought wow
    I have to get myself a nice bike and start riding again

    So, went looking...went to LBS...looked on Craiglist...

    saw a nice used Trek Fuel EX6 $900...looked at Specialized Sport Disc...Trek Marlin 29er
    ..decided on the Norco Jubei 3....I liked the way it rode...though I thought all the bikes were pretty nice and seemed to have comparable specs

    I got a Medium Frame...for now, my riding is mostly road riding..shoulders...some paved trails...I am planning on getting more into trail riding as my skills improve

    The Norco Jubei 3 cost me $700 plus tax...I really like the 29" wheels...I can fly...
