    Gary Fisher Tassajara or Giant Iguana or anything?

    I'm looking into buying a nice hardtail. So far I like the Gary Fisher Tassajara (I found the '03 for $550 at a nearby shop), and it has nice components and fork. The Giant Iguana is said to be heavy and the components aren't as good as the Tassajara.

    Any other suggestions for bikes in this price range.

    Thanks.

    Marin has some good hardtails in that range. i have an 02 Palisades trail that has suited me well in Austin, crested butte, Fruta and Moab. you don't have to have an Elsworth to ride those places.

    good luck,
