Strengths:    I love the Girl specific geometry. I was looking at slightly cheaper bikes and just tried this one out to see the difference. It is so comfortable and it hums when you go fast on the road! :) I love it! Plus, it's blue!

Weaknesses:    It does have a pretty uncomfortable seat and I replaced the pedals.

Bottom Line:   
I love this bike and cannot see myself needing a new bike anytime soon. I ride it around town, on the trails, and on gravel roads. I completed my first adventure race on this bike last year and my second this year. I rocked on both bike portions too! As far as I can tell, I got a whole lot of bike for not too horribly much money and I'm very happy with it!

On the other hand, if all you're doing is riding around town and only getting out on trails every now and then, you probably don't need this bike. And if you've ridden every trail out there fifty times, you probably need more than this bike.

Strengths:    The feel of the Genesister Geometry is something I don't think I would give up for ANYTHING! The feel of a WSD compared to a non-WSD is such a difference. I would say that any average to under-average sized woman should definately get a Genesister. And since the Tassajara is the cheapest priced Genesister it would definately be the choice for someone just getting started or someone who only gets out every once and a while.

Weaknesses:    The saddle isn't the greatest, but since I've already ripped it, I'll just wait to replace it when it's wrecked. Also, the pedals are cheap platforms. Would be nicer if they would have at least come with the standard M515, but that started on the next model up (Big Sur).

Bottom Line:   
I love this BIKE! I get out on it once or twice a week on trails, and I've started racing and have been using it for that. I figure that for a while, until I get super super serious about racing, this bike will do me just fine.

Strengths:    Love the downsized components and the extra small frame - finally feel like I can manouver my bike instead of it manuvering me.

Weaknesses:    Saddle is ridiculous. Platform pedals were pretty cheap. Some adjustments needed in the beginning wrt. the chain which went loose pretty fast.

Bottom Line:   
Love this bike! Aside from the horrendous saddle (luckily not on it enough to bother changing it), and the platform pedals, the bike is a real deal. I plan to ride it forever.

Sell my 03 Tassajara GS for Costco Northfork XCR?

I got a used 03 Tassajara recently for $200. Only things needed changing was the front tube.

GF Marlin GS or Tassajara Disc GS

This will be my first mountain bike and am leaning towards the cheaper Marlin GS unless somebody can justify spending the extra $$$ on the Tassajara Disc GS. I won't be doing technical stuff or jumps or drops and I won't be riding in very muddy conditions (too much of a girl to get dirty )Read More »
