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.

    New question here. Deore RD-M530 (reversible) and Deore SL-M510

    Hello!
    I've got Deore RD-M530 rear reversible derailleur and SL-M510 shifter set almost for free, so I wanted to ask, are they compatibly? Do I have to be ready for some more "tricks", except reversible shifting?

    Sorry for my English!

    Thanks!
