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.

    Flipping a tubeless tire - do I need to add more sealant?

    My wheels are tubeless ready. Put a new tire on the rear the other day and accidentally installed it backward. I wanted to take if off and flip it, but was not sure if I'd need to add more sealant. So, do I need to add more sealant or should the sealant that's in there be good to go since i'ts only been about 72 hours?

    Thanks

    Rob

    No you should be fine unless you spill some during the process of reversing the direction. Just take the tire off when it's sitting upright and the Stan's will pool in the bottom of the tire
