    Ya, I really like the focus black forest 29er, but it is another $400 and I'm not sure how it compares to the fuji. I'll definitely check out performance for some deals. Thanks!

    I think it's a great deal and was looking at the same bike. But it's a 2012 and it should be that price by this time.

    I've got a 2014 Fuji Nevada 29 1.7 (not an impressive bike) and it has never let me down. Frame is solid, components work for me. This one looks considerably better. You won't be disappointed (most likely).

    From what I understand, Fuji used to kinda suck (as in they sucked big time), but they've been really stepping it up lately. I'd even consider getting another Fuji if I could afford one.

    Thanks for the advice. I couldn't find much information on fuji as a brand but its good to know they have stepped their game up. I'll try to demo one at a local shop before I buy.
