    Climbs and handles like a champ and is very responsive. The bad seat will destroy your rear end on long hauls and all though the geometry gives the bike great handling, the riding position killed my lower back (Granted it was a 30 mile ride but I've heard similar gripes from others who have ridden this bike). Front and rear derailleurs shift responsively but the one I rode had SRAM shifters which work but I personally have always perferred Shimano. The tires were good new but they didn't last long before they had to be replaced. The grips are a bit uncomfortable but since I ride with gloves this didn't bother me. A handfull of minor drawbacks keep it from being a full-on five out of five but the Tassajara is still a lot of fun to ride and is worth buying.

    Pros
    GEOMETRY

    Cons
    SEAT, TIRES

    Solid performing hardtail

    Pros
    Solid performer for a hardtail. Rode a ten year old tassajara on some gnarly rocky terrain and it still performed well!

    Cons
    The geometry

    There's nothing fancy about this bike. It's not super-light and it doesn't have top-of-the line components. But the components it does come with are great for an entry-level bike, and the geometry is incredible.

    I plan to keep this bike forever - even if I get a fancier bike. It's tough enough to take more punishment than I can ever give it and it has been extremely reliable.

    Pros
    Solid, reliable, great geometry. Excellent choice for an entry-level bike.

    Cons
    I had to replace the front fork after a few years of abuse.

    Definitely worth buying, but upgrade the tires, grips, and saddle immediately.

    Pros
    Well-balanced and tough.

    Cons
    Crap saddle and crap tires

    I am not sure this is the bike I have. I have this one: http://fisherbikes.com/bike/model/tassajara

    This was a recent purchase and an upgrade of a Specialized Hardrock rigid that is over ten years old.

    So far, all I can say The bike feels solid, and the components feel solid. Seems like a great bike for the price point.ProsFeels really nimble, responsive. So far no serious complaints, but...ConsThe seat is pretty uncomfortable, and I don't like the grips at all. I'll probably upgrade the grips first.

    If you seriously want to start mountain biking and are looking for a HT then this is a good choice. I have rode one for 4 years now and hev upgraded parts to carbon bars and seat post, XT derail., and XT shifters. I also bought the model with the disc brakes. I love the bike and friends(even ones that ride FS) are always wanting to use it. AND its really not that heavy when comapred to other "entry level" bikes like the Trek 4300 and such...

    Pros
    Great serious entry level platform. Strong parts group, durable, and good habdling/geometry.

    Cons
    seat, could have a better fork

    If it's your pricepoint, it's for you! Forget it if you are mr. or mrs. moneybags!

    Pros
    The best beginner mountain bike out there! Strong frame, great geometry, great value.

    Cons
    Heavy, weak wheels, sub par fork (Pilot).

    Great buy for the first mountain bike. Even when I eventually upgrade to full-sus, i will always keep this one around

    Pros
    Strong frame w/ lifetime warranty. I've owned for ~4 years and have upgraded everything on the bike. Entry level priced mountain bike that you can bash on real trails.

    Cons
    heavy. I'm now contemplating a full-susser

    I got my bike in 2002 over in German and put around 150 miles a week on it. Perfect for roads as well as trails. Used mine in three different competitions and it handle the beating perfectly and begged for more. I have a Specialized now but wish I would have gotten another one of these. Once you ride it a while you will fall in love with its speed and how it handles.

    Pros
    Awesome all around mid level bike for the money.

    Cons
    A little heavy but you will get use to it. It'll just make you stronger!

    This bike has been like a brother to me. I think I got it when I was like 16. I am now 25. Almost every component has been upgraded, but the frame is solid.

    Pros
    Strong. Have owned it for like 10 years and ahve dropped some decent cliffs. Still no cracks!

    Cons
    Heavy.
