I am kinda a newbie to the whole sport of MBing and recently began biking everywhere I can in order to save some gas. I also would like to start riding some trails during the week and on the weekend. I am currently riding a very "tired" Gary Fisher Wahoo (far from trail appropriate) and I am considering purchasing a Gary Fisher Sugar 293. One of the thoughts behind that choice is I was interested in trying out many new components (disc brakes, full suspension, front shocks, and of course 29" wheels). Fishers seem to hold up pretty well atleast for my riding and I would like it to last for some time. I also plan on learning a little from the LBS that I would purchase it from and maybe help out the "tired" Wahoo. Does anyone have any advice on this choice of bike as a first 29er? Or if you have any other thoughts or opinions they would be appreciated again I am a newbie.
