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.

    Listen! Continental Sport Contact MTB Slick Tires fitting

    Would the Continental Sport Contact slicks (26 x 1.3) fit okay on the Diamondback Response Comp bike?

    Okay thanks, just wanted to make sure the 1.3" weren't too thin on the rims.

    Also, would I need slimmer tubes to use them or can I just use the stock tubes? I just want to order everything together.

    Yes

    I would order new tubes as well. 26x1.0/1.5. The stock ones will be a bear to fit in a 1.3.!!

    Would 26 x 1.6 tubes work with them? I can't find anything smaller than that size for tubes.
