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.
mtn. biking 101
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.

    Great stuff!
    I've been getting pointers from friends who have been through skills classes, but the videos provide a view that's hard to get when you're actually on the trail and trying to both ride and observe.

    SUPER informative thread. Lots of awesome videos - and Thanks to whoever posted all the more XC focused ones more recently as a lot of the first ones more form OM/FR focused.
