I need you opinion on this new model

Can you please tell me what you think about this new Gary Fisher model? What they said is true or just marketing hype?. They say that the bike is good on either dirt trails or roads. They even call it "dualsport".

Here is the site:

Look at the Dualsport 129 model and tell me what you think.

I personally have not ridden on a 29" but it looks mighty fine to me. I would give it a go any day.

It's a little more aggressive than the typical hybrid-no adjustable stem or suspension seatpost, and if the riding position is more stretched out. I believe the gearing is more towards the mountain bike end of the spectrum, but don't have our new GF catalog handy to verify that.

Carlee, the picture that you post is the dualsport 229 not the 129. On the 129 you got a different frame (better material, more agrresive riding) and you can lockout the front suspenssion among other things.
