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.

    Assuming it's a 9mm quick release, you open the lever and then have to unscrew the fixing bolt a few turns to clear the lawyer knobs.

    Thanks for the reply

    Not a quick release mechanism like the rear wheel.

    Hard for me to describe…

    found the manual online but still cannot figure it out.

    Loosen the small pinch bolts first, then unscrew the axle and pull it completely out of the hub and dropouts. Wheel should fall right off. Reverse the procedure for installation. Don't forget to snug up the pinch bolts or you'll lose them. Don't overtighten them either - it's very easy to strip those threads and then you're into drilling and heli-coiling your fork.

    It's right there on page 7. Just do the opposite of the hub installation procedure.
