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.

    Camber comp 26 and elite 29?

    Does anyone know the stock weights of these bike? They are the only ones my LBS have in stock as of now. Just woundering what the diff weight is because the componants are going to be pretty close. Thanks

    Throw them on the scale at the LBS, that way you get real world weights, I'm sure they will accommodate your request especially if it means a sale.

    Hopefully that isn't the biggest determining factor for you. If the components are indeed pretty close, the 29er will still be a little heavier, mostly due to heavier tires, and after that, there is a little extra in the rims, spokes and frame (but not that much).

    I'd be more concerned with how they fit, how they handle the terrain you ride most, and how they feel to you when you ride them.

    And let's not forget 'color'

    It really doesn't make a big diff just woundering really. As for the feel the best I can do is riding on a parking lot in the back of the shop.
