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.

    New question here. Help selecting the right spacers/reducers for new rear shock

    Hello i recently bought a Rock Shox monarch rt3 165x 38mto replace my old rear shock on my cube ams comp. When i tried to fit the new shock i noticed that the old bushings did not fit the new shock. From the things i have read i understand that the bushing size is determined by booth the frame and the shock. Can anyone help me select the right bushings for the bike, or refer me to info on the subject. Any help will be much appreciated

    Where did you buy the new shock from? If it was a dealer they should be able to advise you.
    Otherwise can you contact/email Rock Shox? as they may well have the parts you need.
