    I would recommend the Tass. I was in the same dilemma 1.5 years ago, and I went with the Tass and I've never regretted the decision. It has better components, so if you can get a deal on the Tass, I'd really suggest going for it. I love mine.

    I like to ride my bike. And drink beer.

    I really thought I wanted the Tassajara until I rode it. I'm a baby Clydesdale at 6' and 210 lbs. I thought the fork on the Tass felt a tad bouncy to me. Probably not an issue for someone of a more normal size. I found that I had to dial the fork back to about 3/4 of the way to lockout to control the bounce. Great bike though. I loved everything else about it. I ended up getting a great deal on a GF Hi Fi Plus and went that route instead.

    The GS is also the ladies frame...which would make a difference in its ride, esp. if you're a clyde like me.

    You won't regret the HiFi
