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.

    wellgo b-18 pedals

    just nabbed a pair in pretty good condition for 10bucks. anyone know how to take it apart? trying to see if i can re-grease it. there seems like a cap on one side but i can't get it off even with a knife. is it sealed permanently and not serviceable?

    I don't have a pair in my hand or anything, but I thought you should be able to pop that cap off. Though I've never taken one apart, so I could be wrong.

    Pedals tend to be similar in design, you can look any pedal video on YouTube to see how to do pedal maintenance
