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.

    Hope My Zion 660ebb, need feedback!!! Thanks!

    Hey whats up fellas, I just built my bike from a 21" Zion 660 ebb frame. Originally the frame was white. I painted it over to my Desire.However there are two type of pictures below, how my bike used to look, and how it looks now. Well parts wise I was on a budget, however in my opionion I think it turned out pretty good, it has Avid bb7 brakes, Truvativ hussefelt crank with howitzer BB, Titec handlebar, stem and seatpost, Panaracer Uff dah! street tires ( 2.3), Cane Creek C1 headset, and Planet bike saddle. For the fork its a Marzocchi MZ super comp 08.
