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.

    Comparable bike to Access Raptor 3.0

    Hey all,

    Ended up getting the bike mentioned above for $200 but there's not a lot of talk about this bike so I wanted to know what a comparable bike to this is? I understand it's entry-level but wanted a good idea on what a similar bike to this one for those who are knowledgeable. Thanks!

    Here is the bike with specs:

    If you want to compare to justify the purchase as a good one - yes, you got a great deal. Enjoy it!
    No, YOU don't understand. You're making an ass of yourself for all of eternity.

    It's very comprable to my Giant Revel 1 that I started on. I paid $465 from a local bike shop for this bike brand new .
