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.

    Here's my GT Peace 26er singlespeed

    I got this off Craigslist about a month or so ago. I've been using it to tool around town, ride to work occasionally etc. I did take it to a local trails park yesterday where I did some up and down on it for about 45 minutes or so. It's a cool bike. Not sure of the years. Pretty heavy I think.

    Only thing I've done it put a more upright stem on it (since I mostly use for commuting) and changed the pedals to crank brothers 5050 platforms.
