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.

    Will these Odi grips fit my GT Avalanche 3.0?

    It says they're for BMX but the color matches my bike perfectly. I would just cut off the end part so I could access my shifters. It says the length but it doesn't mention the diameter of the hole.

    Sorry I didn't UTFSE's. Apparently BMX and MTB grips are both 22 mm.

    Will post pics of the mod in the entry level thread when it's done
