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.

    Roosterboy I have this same shoe only older model 05 -06 it is black,I really like that it is 3/4 high gives you lots of ankle support and protects from rocks and poison ivy and you can use spd pedals if you remove the pad on the sole at the ball of your foot.I use it with cliped pedals and flats and have no compaints

    Those are sort of like the specialized tahoe. Thats what I use. Looks like cleats can be put on there thats how the bottom of the tahoes look. sorta of. All you do cut out that little rubber square, you can kind of see the outline.The holes for the screws are under that Thats were the cleats go.

    thank you all. sounds like the right shoe for me if i ever want to add cleats i could. looks like i will be buying them next week.

    someone told me im stupid to buy shoes for biking. i remember hearing the same thing for hiking but when i spent $200 on a nice asolo boot it was dam worth it they are the best boot i ever used and i only use them for hiking.

    so i believe in buying the shoe or boot for the sport. defiantly makes it more enjoyable asolo test and design the boot just for hiking. so they feel great and im sure specialized dose the same in there r/d department.


    thanks

    if you're sure you don't want clips, think about a grippier shoe like the 661 dually or something from 5-10.

    I have the older version Sawpit with velcro fasteners and I love the fit and the ankle support. I liked them so much that I bought a second pair! Spec makes cool shoes.
