Looking at 29ers - Please Advise!
I just joined the forum and was hoping to find out if anyone can offer advice on 29ers?
I was at a shop yesterday and looked at all kinds.
I drilled it down to two companies I"m trying to decide on - Specialized or Gary Fisher.
There two specific models I'm looking at:
* Gary Fisher "Mamba"
* Specialized "Rockhopper"
Can you all help me decide which is a better option? It seems like the Specialized bike offers a bit more room for customization (i.e. switching gear ratios, moving to single speed, etc.), but I like the way the Gary Fisher frame looks and feels.
They are both very close in price. What are your thoughts?
