ok, so you guys talked me out of a FS. I think i'm thanking you already.
So i did the rounds of some of the local shops and here's what i've found...
most shops around here carry either trek, fisher, and giant ... without looking too hard. I think the fisher is ugly as sin, so i don't care how good it is. so this leaves the treck 4900, and giant yukon or iguana in my price range.
my buddy has the trek so i wouldn't want to copy ... so i'm leaning toward the giant. the shop i saw it at had an 03 model yukon going for about $490 (us) ... i wasn't sure about the iguana. I think he said it was upper 5s?
So what i'm wondering is:
1. what are your thoughts on the new yukons and iguanas?
2. what's the big differences between them? is it worth getting the iguana or can I save some $$, get the giant, and replace parts to make it just as good (or better) than the iguana? (i kinda like how the yukon looks better anyway)
thanks for your input ...
