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.

    Kona Dawg Deluxe for $1000?

    Hello,

    I found Kona Dawg Deluxe for $1000 with these specs:

    Fox Float RP2 rear shock
    Marzocchi Bomber front shock, left side has a blemish on the decal
    Clarks Skeletal hydraulic disc brake front
    Stroker hydraulic disc brake rear
    Sram X-7 shifter and rear derailleur 9 speed
    Sunline Handlebars
    Hadley rear hub laced to an MTX rim
    Specialized front hub laced to a single track rim which has a flat spot and is a bit out of tru
    Race Face Evolve XC crankset and external bottom bracket with K-Nine bash guard
    WTB Speed V saddle

    The bike is in very good shape.

    Is this a decent price?

    Thank you.
