Gary Fisher Tassajara Disc Vs Trek 6500.
Should i get a gary fisher tassajara disc or a trek 6500? Im going to start doing some cross country racing this year and i want a bike thats good and lite.Wich one of these should i get and wich one is lighter?
I just got my GF Tassajara yesterday. I rode both of these bikes and I personally liked the GF. The guy at the LBS also suggested I get the GF over the trek. I rode the bike almost 25 miles yesterday and loved it. Im also riding in a XC race next weekend.
Neither one of these bikes are going to be considered "light" in the racing world, so you may as well forget that. They are probably at minimum, 6 lbs heavier than a light XC bike. With that said, i have a Trek 6000 that is the same frame as the 6500. I really love it, and it is a lot faster than my Trek 4300's.
Wich one was less heavy?

Test ride both them. it ill quickly become apparent which one you like better.
BTW, my 7 year old Tassajara is still rockin'! Great bike for the money.
I Think now that i would like to have a all-mountain bike.Is the kona dawg from 2006 good?
