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.

    Need help identifying high clamp / low clamp, bottom pull / top pull

    Need help identifying high clamp / low clamp, bottom pull / top pull-photo.jpgAttachment 781586Hi everyone, thanks for taking a look at this. I"m trying to order a new drivetrain for my '07 Haro Extreme X7. The drivetrain is pretty beat and it's time for a new one yet the choices of high and low clamp and bottom and top pull, I'm at a loss. I'm sure I want whatever is already on my bike, I'm just uprading from X7 to X9 parts. I've attatched a picture, can anyone help me identify what my bike has so I can just order the same thing? Thanks, ErikAttachment 781585

    Looks like low clamp, top pull to me.

    I think most if not all do top or bottom pull.

    I'm pretty new at this too, so get some some confirmation!
