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.

    Pedal Driven

    I know I am late to seeing this but, for us noobs, everything is new and exciting. This past weekend I watched a great documentary on Netflix called pedal driven. If you get a chance take a look. Its about the struggle between MTBs and National parks and satisfying the needs of many groups using public parks. Very motivating, makes me want to figure out how to help.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common
