    Haro vs. Gary Fisher

    Hi fellow NJers,

    Anyone have experience with these bikes? Am I getting ripped off? Which one should I get? Should I get something else for my price range? I'd appreciate anyone's expert advice. Thanks all.

    Haro V4 2005 hardtail for $550:

    Suspension - Manitou 6 100mm Travel
    Tektro IO Disk Breaks
    9-speed Shimano Deore w/ LX Rear Derailleur

    Gary Fisher Piranha 2007 hardtail for $400 (like new, used only 3 times):

    Suspension - Manitou Axel Elite w/TPC Lockout | 100mm travel
    Componentry - Shimano Deore rear derailleur + shifters + Alivio front derailleur | Shimano M410 42/32/22 crank + Avid BB5 mechanical disc brakes + Alloy platform

    If it fits right get the Fisher. It look like a great starter bike.

    Awesome man, thanks for the advice. By the way, do you have any other suggestions for my price range? ($400-$550)

    Walk into as many local shops as you can and tell them what your budget is. Lots of shops have '05 and '06 leftovers and you can usually swing a deal. Most bikes at this range are fairly similar -- what's most important is fit. Post the town or county you live in and people will recommend shops in your area and give you a point of contact.
