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 tensioners fit these dropouts????

    I was wondering if those tensioners would fit those dropouts. I am thinking to put them at the rear side (where there is not the dropout cut). Mostly for safety, for tensioning the chain and for using a quick release skewer. Do you think it could work? Thanks

    I think so...

    I don't see anything in the pic that would indicate that it shouldn't work.
