My GT was stolen, and I have a some ins money for a replacement. I am looking at the Marin Palisades bike. Anyone one who is riding one post your thoughts on this bike? Also if anyone has any suggestions on a replacement mtb for around $800.00, I am not a racer but I do ride three times a week. I was also looking at the Fisher Hoo Koo E Koo - better bike than the Marin Palisades?
