Excellent bike for both hardcore technical single track and wide open fast and flowy XC. This is a Gary Fisher 29er. Need I say more?
Tires and brakes needed to be upgraded. The Bontrager Jones tires just couldn't handle hard climbs up the singletrack. The brakes were also surprisingly short-lived and needed replacement three times this season (although it has been brought to my attention that I tend to ride the brakes too often!)
This was my first mountain bike and I wanted something I could grow into and not grow out of - boy was I in for a surprise!
I have been absolutely blown away by the bike's performance over the past year and she has helped me grow into a much more confident rider. The value is amazing. Highly Recommended!
