Anybody else but me think they did a better job on the Hi-Fi than the Caliber? I mean no Genesis 2 geometry, single pivot vs. linkage rear suspension, 3" vs. 4" travel.

HiFi is 5"

Actually, the HiFi is 5" travel, and it rides like a race bike. That thing rocks, and it's the first 26" bike that I've considered buying in a long time. The handling can't be beat in my book.

I still think my El Mariachi is the cat's pajamas, so it's a moot point anyway.

The Hi Fi is a nice bike. A large weighs 27 and change... with 5" of travel. That bike is put together nicely.

If Fisher made a 29" Hi-Fi, that would be the ticket (maybe 4" instead of 5" on the 29 platform). Maybe next season.:) I think the Caliber rear end is a little flexy, where as the Hi-Fi linkage would be a little more stable for a 29.

I got to test the Hifi and the I-Drive within a few weekends side-by-side and turned corners on pavement fast. I think the Hifi handles like a unicycle, but its light weight and lockout could have had an effect.
