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.

    Truvativ Blaze BB Adjustment

    I have a new GT Avalanche Expert and I have some play in my Truvative Blaze crank. The BB spindle has some lateral play. Is this normal or can you take out the play by adjusting the BB cups? It is a Howitzer BB.

    Thanks,

    Jaysled

    Are you running a BB spacer? Check the BB shell size on your bike. What is your current set up?

    It looks like there are two spacers on the chain ring side, none on the left side. It is the stock set up.
