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.

    And Hello MTBR

    Hi. New to mountain biking and back to biking after a decade off. How is everyone doing?
    As long as I'm on the call sheet and it's listed on IMDb, it's all good.

    Damn it, where the hell have you been? We've been all worried sick about you!

    Now here... put on this helmet and get to work. There are trails waiting to be ridden.

    I'll tell you this quickly whips your legs into shape. I am about to give up smoking so I can enjoy this sport.
