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.

    Do I have 1/2 inch or 9/16 pedals?

    I want to replace my pedals on my Raleigh M50 Mountain trail. I can't tell if I have 9/16 or 1/2 inch pedals. My caliper measures right between the 1/2 and 9 /16's.

    I cant find specs on the web anywhere. Right now installed is a set of wellgo LU 983's..


    Anyone have any idea?
