Strengths:    I went from a barracuda response to this super quick and very light weight bike and i'll start by saying that this is the only bike for me. I'm 5.8 and found very little problems with the size of this frame and was shocked at the speed of it.

Weaknesses:    As long as you treat this baby with care and don't go throwing it around the pavement then all you need to worry about is buying kevlar weaved tyres to stop any punctures which can be caused by the light weight tyres

Bottom Line:   
The best of the best when you're looking to gain some speed to your already 40mph and it'll climb ben nevis if you've got it in you. No joke- this is a bike i'd take with me to heavon or hell.

Strengths:    Fantastic Bike! I love it! It is a great fit I go 245lbs @ 6’4”. I was racing every weekend for a couple years and had a ball with this bike!

Weaknesses:    Super tight single track is not what this bike likes with the 29’s. However, this is offset with the added ease of rolling over large obstacles and trees. I was going through chains for a while until I put on a Dura Ace top of the line. That was a couple years ago with no problems since and I would not blame this on the bike.

Bottom Line:   
I think this bike is great especially if you are a taller person. Acceleration and climb and rolling over stuff is great! Tight single track is not as quick as say an Old School Bontreager which handles like you are riding on a squirrels back down a mountain, but it is good enough to get the job done and hit the downhill with confidence. Overall this bike is a fantastic bike.

Gary Fisher Mt Tam 1.5" HT--new stem?

I have a mid 90's GF Mt Tam with a 1.5" steerer tube. I'm putting together a budget bike for my 10 yr old. Looking for a short stem. Any ideas where I can find one? It has a Roxk Shox Judy XC fork. I know I can probably get a headset adapter and a 1 1/8th fork, but I was hoping to get just a ... Read More »
