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.

    Problem with Ritchey Comp headset assembly - scott scale 40

    Hi, I bought a second hand scott scale 40 frame 2011 along with the headset. Unfortunately it is not the integrated that I'm used to.Problem with Ritchey Comp headset assembly - scott scale 40-snc02293.jpgProblem with Ritchey Comp headset assembly - scott scale 40-snc02292.jpgProblem with Ritchey Comp headset assembly - scott scale 40-snc02291.jpgProblem with Ritchey Comp headset assembly - scott scale 40-snc02290.jpgProblem with Ritchey Comp headset assembly - scott scale 40-snc02288.jpg
    I can't seem to get the headset right- it has ball bearings in a ring (not symetrical). I tried both ways - balls towards the head of the frame and balls going outwards. In both cases the steereing is way to loose. Maybe the seller didnt send me all the needed parts?

    Can anyone who has the same model give me a hint how to assemble it?
