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.

    Suntour Raidon vs Rockshox XC 30 TK

    Would it be better to do the sr suntour upgrade program to get a Raidon LO for $150 or get the RS XC 30 tk for 160?

    I believe the raidon is an air fork and pretty decent one at that. XC30 tk is an entry lvl fork, not bad but best I can tell raidon is a bit better.
