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.

    I have read that it is a good frame, and I rode with someone this week who said it was great. They are making new ones to the same specs as the originals apparently. If they had many over here I would likely pick one up. Happy hunting.

    In the UK this bike has received rave reviews, with mtb magazines saying it is the best hardtail under 1,000 and the frame matches bikes twice the price.

    So you should find it is a pretty good bike.

    So they produce a bike that gets rave reviews, and sells out continually......and then stop selling it.

    Sounds sensible.
