Funny thing happened yesterday. After searching all day for for someone to lend me thier 29er, I ran into Cup Cake later in the day on the Tosa Trails. Guess what, he had the the perfect sized Gary Fisher 29er. It was like the angel from heaven appeared. So I took the opportunity to ask him if I could take it for a spin. All equipped with the comforts of home, TIME pedals, and nice bar handles to rest my weary hands on. I took it out for a spin and was impressed with the stiffness with each pedal stroke. I really like the fact that it can just crush about anything and corner like a dream. Top it off, the bike was a perfect fit. Thanks again Rick!
