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.

    Scott Aspect 55

    Hello,

    Any opinions on the Scott Aspect 55 as an entry level mountain bike? I do not plan to do any hard core riding, mainly light cross country and mellow single track. The LBS has this for a good price and it seems competitive to other brands on the market.

    Price would be $400 with lifetime tuneups. Seems fair when compared to other similar bikes.

    Thanks, drn92
