Well I have been lurking for a while and have finally decided to come out. I used to bike quite a bit a few years back until I broke my shiny yellow TREK frame.
Now that I have joined my department's Bike Patrol and have been riding a bit I have decided I want my own. So next week my brand new Gary Fisher Tassajaro DISC will be here. Originally I ordered a Giant Rainer but it turns out they are not available any more this season. My local bike shop ( Pedal Power in Stone Mountain, GA) was kind enough to sell me the GF at the same price as the Rainer and to even up-grade the derailluers at no cost. Essentially I am getting a $850.00 +/- bike for $700.00.
Anyhow I am happy to be back in the fold.
