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.

    Preload cap on RockShox XC30 popped off.

    Nvm guys, I should had been more specific. when I say the preload popped off, the coil was also exposed and the cap that was supposed to be screwed on the fork holding the suspension came off too.

    I'd recommend contacting RockShox, hopefully it's still under warranty

    Warranty. That's outside normal wear and year. If they offer it, try to get credit towards a recon silver.
