Strengths:    Very fast on road, smooth ride with nice geometry. Fairly light set up even with accesories.

Weaknesses:    Brake pads from factory are week and I had to condition and adjust 2 times, but still better than rim brakes ever will be. They need better brake pads or just upgrade to hydraulic for $120 or so.

Bottom Line:   
Ridden bike 600 miles already and love it. Awsome paint job which turns heads. Everyone who has ridden it loves the ride, smoothness and speed. Well balanced for road without bucking you off or make you feel like it. Have ridden trails, sand, hard dirt, over logs and bike handles it all. Bike is 3 inches longer than a mountain bike with 700 wheels so turning is a learning experience off road. Fork has dampner ajustments and lock out for long rides. I would not purchase to ride trails exclusively, Get a mountain bike that is what they are made for. In my opinion for the price it is the middle of the road quality in componets for a dual sport bike, but a quality bike to put you back into shape.

29er rims and tyres ona Gary Fisher Utopia

Hi 29er fans I have a GF Utopia I think it is a 2007 model with 700c road bike wheels currently fitted. I was thinking about getting some better wheels and was wondering if it was possible to fit 29 rims. Its a commuter only and there is quite a bit of clearance with the thin tyres I have on the 7 ...

Apples to oranges 2011 Trek Utopia or 2007 Trek 8000

So i'm riding 80% street right now, the rest actually on trails. Half the time on the street I'm towing my son around in his chariot. It's been ten years since i've bought a bike. Right now I'm trying to decide between two bikes. I feel I don't know enough about components or new bikes at all to ... Read More »

Question about GF Utopia

Interested in getting a Utopia as a commuter bike that has a MTB geometry and ability. I know it's not a true off-road bike, but that's not what I'm looking for in this bike, as I have other bikes that fit the bill. I want something with bigger tires, and I hear that I can convert this to a 29er. Ne ... Read More »
