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.

    SRAM S800 crankarm removal?

    I'm having a hard time finding formation on how to remove the crankarms from a sram s800. I got the crankbolt off, but I guess these aren't self-extracting and I'm going to need another tool.

    Will I need a crank puller for square or tapered cranks?

    Thanks.

    You'll need a crank puller specific to the type of bottom bracket you have.

    It looks like it's a splined (ISIS) bottom bracket. You'll need a crank puller specific to a splined bottom bracket. Also note, there's usually a retention ring nested inside the crank arm that serves as a washer for the crank bolt. You'll want to ensure that ring is out before you remove the crank arm.

    I picked up a Park Tool CCP-44 and the crank came off easily. The bottom bracket is a
    Truvativ Powerspline.

    According to Jensonusa Truvativ Powerspline BB > Components > Drivetrain > Bottom Brackets | Jenson USA Online Bike Shop

    Proprietary spline design popular as OE spec with many moderate-price TruVativ cranks.
