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.

    Help in choosing 15mm front hubs

    I need to add 2 new front hubs to my wheelsets because I am converting to a 15mm thru-axle Fox Fork. I am a single track rider mostly, but train on the road when I can't make it to trails.

    I bought 2 new hubs and want to know which I should put on my main wheelset for singletracking, and which should go on my extra set of wheels for road slicks during training rides. The 2 are:

    Hope Evo Pro II
    Sram X-9

    Thanks for your insigt and opinions.

    Hope is extremely good. I would choose this hub over almost any other hub. They're extremely durable and reliable. I would definitely put it on my off road wheelset. Enjoy!
    There is not much choice between rotten apples.

    Personally, I don't think it makes much of a difference when it comes to front hubs

    as long as they aren't garbage
    Honestly... ahh I give up
