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.

    if you want to date a GT Aggressor, just ask it out! bring some flowers, take it to a nice restaurant, and be yourself. and per Steven Colbert's advice, wear a bow tie. a BOW tie!

    Wasn't there a guy in Europe that got arrested for 'dating' the seat tube of his bicycle?
    ===================================
    My guess is around 1999-2000+/-

    Mind that fork if it's a 2001 Judy TT. It's been recalled. Call SRAM and they will still work with you on a replacement. I have one in process right now.

    Thank you, I'm checking on that with the bike shop right now. If you ever need sound equipment or lighting let me know. I can find you a good deal anywhere in the country

    Thanks for the offer. I turned over a 2001 Judy (edit: Jett (although the Judy was recalled, too)) TT fork to one of the local bike shops a couple of weeks ago. They called SRAM and sent the shock off for replacement. I haven't heard back, yet. But, I'm in no hurry. Even if they replace it with a Dart 1 it's still better than riding the recalled fork and worrying about the stanchions snapping in half.

    Let us know what your bike shop says. I'm curious if we'll end up with the same replacement fork.

    FYI, I received my replacement fork today and it's a 2010 RockShox Dart 3. Looks like this.
