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.

    Internal dropper-post routing

    My Trek Stache frame has internal dropper-post routing. Will that work with any dropper post I choose? I see the Rock Shox Reverb has "stealth" version for internal routing. I don't see that option on any other dropper-post I have been checking out. Thanks.

    I do believe that they are all the same size diameter and should all work fine. I just ran a KS lev internally with no issues at all.
    Good luck
