    Gary Fisher Cake 3 2006 V brakes 550? good deal?

    It's in Mint condition, cant have more then 50-100 miles on her.

    So I've got him down to 550, is it a good deal?

    I currently have a Giant Iguana running BB7 brakes, weirwolf tires, hardtail, rock shox pilot C 80mm fork, and deore rear derailleur.

    is it really an upgrade?

    I'll say.
    Especially if you get him to throw in the Deli-Cat.

    Now ive had fried cat, but delicatessen style cat? How do you prepare it?

    haha Im dieing here I dont know enough about mountain bikes, I just love riding them on our beginner/intermediate trails in VA.

    so whats the word guys yay or nay? If its not a killer deal then I really wont get it since my giant suffices.

    forgive my ignorance but yes its better then my giant or yes its a killer deal or both? I mean after all it is still 550 bucks but if its impossible to get a deal like this, then I want to jump on it so I can keep it for the long run.

    I got her for 550 but he also threw in a brand new pair of cannondale mountain biking shoes that fit PERFECTLY! plus some TIME upgraded clips.

    So far I LOVE IT!

    And like I said Im a noobie so I started with the Hayes GX2 disc brakes and upgraded to BB7s on the giant. Now this GaryFisher has some avid V brakes on her and WOW its stopping power is wicked, Im going to try her in wet weather tomorrow morning early and if they hold up I dont think Ill change.

    Im giddy.
