I don't know much about Gary Fisher. However, I think 07 Specialized Stumpjumper is a good starter bike. A friend of mine bought it this year and it has worked out good.

the 08 fishers have a weird offset fork, so don't plan on changing the fork on those.

Stumpy, but I'm biased coz I own one ('06)...

EDIT*

My opinion regarding comparisons is virtually useless since I've never ridden a Fisher.

But, if you want a light bike that screams uphill like a leaf in the breeze and you don't mind your sexy paintjob being chipped by the power of an ant's fart, look no further.

The Fisher bikes are cheaper on every comparable trim to the Stumpy. I do like the frame design of the 07 Stumpy better though.
