I need a bit more feedback before I make my decision.
I test rode all of these, the Gary Fisher Genesis Wahoo $419, the Hardrock Sport $379 and the Rockhopper $520 I am not "skilled" enough in the Components realem to even begin to compare which is which and what is what.
As you can see, I'm looking for a good entry level hardtail in the $400 or so range but willing to spend the extra $$ if justifiable.
Anybody out ther that own either of these bikes with any contructive info would be very helpful.
The only feedback that I got so far is from the LBS owner that stated he has ridden Specialized bikes all his life but with the price range that I had in mind that he would recommend the Fisher. This come from a guy that seems to carry a mjority of Specialized but likes to stock the Genesis because, and only because of the Genesis frame. What's up with that?
I know not to believe what everyone tells me but I am counting on "Majority Rules" in this thread.
Anyway, thanks for your time.
BTW, all the bikes rode real well. The fish was probably the smoothest but the Rockhopper had the tougher feel to it.
