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.

    630 + shoes

    Model Year 2011
    Product Options 17.5 in stock,

    Description Core 20 - the aluminium hardtail that's dead-centre, always on target. It's fast, light and accurate with a trail-tested geometry that's capable of taking lines that may surprise you. Tapered and ovalised double-butted 6061 heat-treated aluminium tubes tune the ride feel to avoid harshness as well as keeping the weight down and strength up. The Core frame design needs a durable part list, so all Shimano brakes and gears, Rockshox forks plus details such as spline-axle cranks, 400mm seat posts, shorter stems and wider bars are all standard.
