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.

    Unidentified Frame

    Hi guys. I found a seller who had an old full sus mtb frame lying around and he was selling it for around $30. Can't really tell what brand it is and no more decals under the paint. Based on how it looks I'd say it's an Azonic but I need some help here. It seems pretty solid. Do you think it's a good buy? I was gonna build it up as a classic freeride bike. It's made out of steel so it can be repaired easily. I'll be cutting the v-brake bosses and welding a bracket for disk brakes since I have some leftover parts from my hardtail. And then a repaint right after. Could you guys check the pictures and tell me what you think.

    Oh it's another guy from my country who was looking for the real identity of his bike. Go figures it came from cartimar. Well at least I can pin it down to Norco or Pacific cycles.
