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.

    What does Swobo mean?

    New to the sport, I was looking on Santa Cruz Bicycles website and saw some shirts that saw Swobo on them. I also searched this board, and didn't see anything explaining it. What is Swobo, or what does it mean?

    Okay, well I'm not too concerned about the meaning, just wanted to know what it is! A bike company is good enough! Thanks!
