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.

    Xt M775 Compatible?

    Does anyone know if the Shimano XT M775 disc brakes are compatible with the XT M765 dual control shifter/brake lever?

    Do you mean XT M775 disc calipers are compatible to XTM765 lever/shifter, Yes they do.

    What do you have?

    Thanks, I have a set of XT M765 shifter/levers and I want to buy the newer brake calipers but I don't know if they will work together.

    You don't even have to buy XT level it can be Deore or LX it would work. Check your fork what kind of mount you have PM or IS. If possible get the PM caliper for the front, it would make setting up the front brake a breeze.

    Don't have a fork yet. I'm building a new bike and had the extra lever/shifters from my current bike. Will keep your advice in mind. Do you happen to know if the M775 calipers have better adjustment than M765

    There's no adjustment on the caliper, on most calipers all the bells and whistles are at the lever.
