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.

    Fuji Tahoe Pro - is this a good deal?

    I'm new to all this and I'm looking to buy my first bike. Someone in my area is selling this for $200. I believe it's a 2006 and comes with Manitou SX forks. How much do you guys think this bike is worth? I'm gonna check it out tomorrow and I just wanted to get a general idea if this bike is any good or not. Thanks guys!

    decent deal, 2006 isn't too old. doesn't have a dart or suntour fork so thats good. look at the fork and compress it, see if it feels ok.

    Good deal for the price, definitely cheaper than what I've seen in my area.
