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.

    Forget it. Just knew Woodstock won't ship where I live.

    Any other place where I buy online directly from the manufacturer?

    Try Ibex or Bikesdirect. Don't know if they ship to PR or not.

    Perhaps Woodstock would ship to PR If you were willing to pay a little extra for postage?

    That's strange that they won't ship to you.. Did you contact owners Jimmy or Libby directly? They're usually pretty accomodating if you explain your situation. Like it was said, maybe for a few extra bucks??

    I was checking the shipping faq, and they only ship to Alaska and Hawaii outside US, no more.

    But I will drop an email to see what they tell me.

    So then again, is this a good bike?

    Assuming you already saw this review from the other thread but figured I would drop it again if you hadn't:

    Sounds like a great deal if they'll ship it to you.
