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.

So I bought these and ever since I haven't had any problems. I'm thinking about getting them for my Paragon.

    For like $3.50 more you can get the clamps laser etched!!! Thought that would be nice for a wife, friend, or even bragging rights!!!


    What do you think?

    ODI GRIPS

    So you've used ODI grips on BMX bikes and ATV's. So you know the advantages of installing them on a bike.

    You've asked us if anyone uses them. The answer is yes. Many of us use them for exactly the same reasons you prefer them.

    Yes, at the very minimum they'll know for sure that they get on their bike. But if you really wanna hook-up wife, friend whoever, tattoo their name backwards onto their forehead. This way when they look in the mirror

    ODI Clamps are a must have item. I've been using the lock on lizard skin chargers, nice balance between squish and firm.

    I bought some ODI Grips for my Trek and had my username etched on the clamps. I have ODI grips on both my mountain bikes and they are some darn fine grips. Love em!

    I don't use Strava. Don't need an application to tell me I am slow because I already know.
