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.

    Earnest Hemingway once said "The world is a fine place and worth fighting for." I agree with the second part.

    Perhaps it seems fast because your mind is slow.

    Yeah, but the real question is: Is it all mountain?
    Don't you hate it when a sentence doesn't end the way you think it octopus?
