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.

    Hi

    Hi,

    I'm new to the forum, I ride a Trek 3700 I got for 75. It's a non disk one.



    It's already broken though... I guess I'm riding it wrong. I've joined to get advice from people who know what their doing.

    Thanks

    Your video won't play on my device. Can you tell us what's wrong in words and stills?

    "The video is private" that's what it says when I try to view it...

    THanks, I set it to public now...

    The chain guard got jammed into the cassette, so I took it off. Also I got a flat. At the moment the only thing left broke is the front cable. It stapped.

    The video plays, but doesn't seem to have anything to do with whatever the problem is. If you're just saying hello - Hi and welcome aboard. If you're asking for advice, you're just going to have to explain your issue in understandable terms.
