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.

    l had to laugh!

    I went out on the bike last night, and try as l might l could not get my Garmin Edge GPS computer to turn on.
    Surely it had not run out of power? Maybe if l took off my glove to press the button...no, still nothing. Dead.
    I carried on with the ride. Eventually l stopped for a rest and shone my light on the unit.
    I had only fitted it to the bar mount upside down. So l was trying to turn it on with the "start ride" button.

    After turning it round, it powered up straightaway.

    No matter how good the technology..........
