So yesterday I stopped at a local bike shop in Cape Girardeau, MO to drool over whatever selection of 29er's they had. I made the grave error of test riding a Gary Fisher Genesis 2.0 Paragon 29er.
What the hell was I thinking? That is not in my current budget and I am now in
Tracey and I have agreed that this year we are cutting way back on xmas to each other in order to help a local family. I still want and will help the family, but I want to renegotiate the cutting back on each other part Well, at least the cutting back on me part. I REALLY LIKED THAT BIKE
I have been chatting with a whitewater forum friend of mine who lives in CO and is part owner of a bike shop. His shop sells Giant, Fuji, and I think Cannondale, so he has access to a couple of 29er's, but he himself admits that he went out and bought the GF from a competitor because he felt it's geometry was that much better designed then the Fuji.
How silly it is to test ride when you are not in a position to buy If you read about a liquor store robbed in my area, I'll let you know how the new GF works out
