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.

    Ohio Trails?

    Is there an area to find local trails and riders. I'm just getting back into riding and would like to find some local trails that I can access w/o getting in over my head. I'm new to mtbr and trying to learn to navigate the site. I could nt' find an ohio link. thanks

    Welcome to the forums. For starters, here is the Ohio trail directory:
    http://trails.mtbr.com/cat/united-st...S_4569crx.aspx

    If that doesn't yield any results, try asking/posting in the midwest forum:

    Best of luck!
