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.

    Why the MTBR Contest just for US and Canada?

    Ok, this is interesting..it's many contests in MTBR, but all are just for Canadian and US..
    I think we all the members have same chance to enter the contest and win something, but the fact is different..

    I think it will be more interesting if the contest become worldwide..

    Postal laws and laws regarding contests and drawing vary widely from country to country. I wouldn't be surprised if there were countries where the contests run by American businesses were flat out illegal. (Consumer laws can vary widely from place to place; one of the most often cited is a German law that bans 2-for-1 sales.)

    Most businesses don't have the time, the resources, or the inclination to figure out and comply with all countrys' laws.
