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.

    Rock Shox Judy TT

    Im new to the sport, so I need a little help. I found a pair of Rock Shox Judy TT for $25.00.
    Im not into jumping yet. I have bike that I pick up cheap and just riding it until I get in shape and have money saved for a good bike. My question is: Are the Rock Shox Judy TT worth the 25? Thank you for your time..

    Not unless your current fork is actually broken. And there are a ton of problems that can be involved with buying a used fork. The travel might be wrong, the steer tube might have been cut too short, the steer tube might be the wrong size, the fork could need a rebuild...
