Trek and Gary Fisher bikes are similar and are generally sold in the same stores although the Gary Fisher bikes are often much cheaper than their similar Trek counterparts. Is there a big difference between the two?
I had been considering a Trek Remedy 9.9 for quite awhile but now that I'm seeing the Gary Fisher Superfly 100 I'm starting to reconsider because the components are so similar...except for the fork. The Remedy has 150 mm as compared to the Superfly's 100mm.
Any thoughts on reputation, quality, stability, value, etc. would be greatly appreciated. If they both cost the same, which would you consider to be the better bike? BTW, I'm 6'4" and weigh 240 lbs so I'm now considering the Gary Fisher for the 29" wheels and 23" frame...but I really need some credible advice.
Thanks in advance.
