    other than having parts that ar hard as hell to find, it's probably a great bike. and it'll be pretty expensive too. in terms of replacing wheels and fork should the need arise.

    My dad has a Mt. Tam 29 which is a 2 or so year model of the same thing. He is 6'7" tall and loves it. He has always struggled with finding a bike with a long enough wheel base.

    I have a 29er but not made by Fisher. Those big wheels will roll over anything. The only problem I've encountered so far is the lack of choice in tires. I use the WTB 29 inch tires and find them quite good for everything except for mud.
