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.

    Killer deals on brand new 2012 Treks?

    I'm looking for a smokin deal on a brand new 2012 Trek. Does anyone know where I can find one? More specifically, a Slash or Session. Looking for something along the lines of $1000 off. Specialized Status or Enduro would also be acceptable options. I don't want to buy used.

    Yeah...looks like I'm sh*t outta luck on saving money. I just ordered a 2014 Slash 8 instead! Now, if only I could build a time machine and meet my bike in the future!

    Try Yakaz.com. They will show you all Craigslist, eBay and other regional bike classifieds, once you keyword your Trek model. That's how I found my new, 2012 Trek Superfly 100 Pro, after an exhausting, 3-month search and two deals slipped my grasp. It's still risky, but I got lucky and the shipper was very understanding and cooperative.
