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.

    DJ bike

    I'm looking to get a DJ bike, and am looking at the la Pierre rapt 2.2 in a large and am wondering if this is going to be to large for me. I'm 5'11 and am looking to use it for jumping/ pump track riding?

    You'll want to ask in the Urban/Park/DJ forum - probably get some specific info there. Help if you can find the frame measurement specs and post them along with it.
