    Finally my first GF.....

    After riding dept store bikes in the past, I finally decided I wanted to get a "real" bike. I've been really liking the Marlins and Wahoos after a test ride and comparing it to other brands and models. I was going to pick up a brand new 2009 Marlin no disc yesterday from LBS, but decided to take a look at a bike I found on Craigslist first. It was a 2009 Tessajara. The frame was just done as a warranty replacement, but never registered by the current owner or bike shop that did the replacement. It has a new Eaton stem and bars, Deore shifters and derailers, Juicy 3's, Rock Shox Tora SL fork. The owner bought a Hi-Fi and decided not to ride it after the rebuild, so he could basically sell it as a new bike. No nicks or chips on the frame all. Let me know what you think guys?...

    Looks good, except for the seat being pointed at the ground
    Worked at Trek/Fisher dealer 2008-2013. Only a little biased.

    When under pressure, your level of performance will sink to your level of preparation.

    LOL... They were in appropriate, so I decided to post the bike instead... The only thing I would have done different would have been black wheels. I still love the way it looks though

    Not so sure the seat is angled wrong.
    The wall seems to slant to the right quite a bit.

    I hate it.




















    Only kidding man. Enjoy it. Compared toe dept store bike, you are going from a '92 Civic to an 2010 (well 2009) Acura.

    I demo'd a 2010 Tassajara at my LBS and loved it - great fork (Tora air) and nice enough brakes (Juicy 3).

    Then I got into 29er's and did a trail demo of a 2010 HiFi Deluxe 29er which I can't afford. Ever since then...well, you ever ridden a high-end, full-squish bike?
