Sounds like fun!!!!! Are they expensive? Now you just need one of those and a single speed and you will have all the toys!
Im out for this weekend but hopefully we can get some good weather and I can come out and play next weekend.
TQ

Wondering thoughts on these 29-ers ?

Demo still available ? Thinking HT (Paragon) though.
Where and how do I demo ?
Cost ??
LX level. Only change I'd make is to Mechanical brakes, bb7's.

Thanks
Pete D

Medium 09' Hi-Fi still available for demo and or purchase @ Southbridge Bikes ( 508-764-3657 ) , talk to Bob , if he's not in Southbridge , he'll be at the Putnam store - ( 860-928-0011 )
Demo'ing is no charge
2010 Demos aren't in yet , maybe another month or so . I'll let everyone know when they start coming in . We went over a short list last week , this year he'll have a single speed for demo too . I talked him out of the Rumble Fish , told him I thought it was way too much suspension for a 29'er , in fact I talked to another rider last week that did demo a R.F. , he said it was like driving a 67' Buick .
2010 Paragons are out , ordered one for myself already , be in Wednesday-ish .

Since I was forced to get a new bike I took the opportunity to get the Hi Fi 29er. I was debating about the Stumperjumper 29er but found the G2 geometry from Fisher pretty much removed the oversized feeling. I had demoed the medium and small frames and both felt comfortable. I'm 5'6" and the shop recommended the medium but I went with the small to save on weight and wheel base. The stem had to be lengthened to compensate but it still handles fine. The tall steerer tube has to be allowed for so the second thing I did was put the stem all the was down - much more comfortable now. I've taken it on a few technical rides now and really don't feel that I am riding a 29er except for the fact that there are less bumps on the trail :P The handling is fantastic! I haven't attempted too much with the suspension set up yet but there are plenty of knobs to play with so I'm sure it will dial in as I like it.
