    Let me give this a try:
    Which bike do you like the best?
    Then that is the bike you should buy.
    Next question....

    Based on the name alone I'd buy the Wahoo.

    Other than that, you should just ride them all and pick the one that works the best for you.

    That's what counts.

    FWIW, i actually like the graphics. Is this one of them-there Genesis frames? I can't say that I've ever ridden a GF Genesis, but from what I understand you either love it or hate it. You obviously love it.

    I like the graphics on it too.. what fork is that?? 520 sounds steep, but it looks like a fine machine.
    I only pedal uphill.

    You bought an 09 in 08. Standard to pay full retail. Check the Fisher site for exact price but I think it's right. I looked at the new Fisher frames a few days ago. I may get a Tass later on to convert to SS. Or if the new Rig has the new frame.
