I love it... I cannot believe how amazing it rides and how damn fast it is... I mean extremely light weight and extremely fast. Riding it is like riding on a rail, solid... I am very pleased with my Bday present!!!!

It is a 17.5" Gary Fisher Kaitai and it is a 29er


Anyone else with any Gary Fisher experience here? I hope I grow to love this bike as much as I THINK I will.

the topic line sounds like a setup for about a dozen jokes...

So that's what they're calling the double-fudge these days.

I've got a Tassajara - 2001, I think. I LOVE it.

Good luck with yours

I am 5'11", the bike is a 17.5" and this IS my first 29er

I have been researching bikes a while, and love the concept of the 29er for the riding that I do.

The bike shop owner looked at me and knew what size I would need, the guy is good, plus they offer great service for what they sell. They only sell Trek, Gary Fisher and Felt bikes.

The speed of this bike when you open it up is insane, once I get my computer calibrated I will have to get some #s

29'ers kick arse. I was looking at the GF's a couple years ago but decided on a Karate Monkey.
