    Is it a good fisher deal?

    Now that I am moving over to the so called dark side, (love thy monkee) I am interested in getting a second 29er for certain races. I live in Northern IL which almost makes Mountain bike Race sound stupid. but I do some races in other states including Chequamegon 40.
    I just got my KM and think its great! But the bike shop that is my teams primary sponsors has a leftover 2002 fisher Mt. Tam That I can get for $1100-
    My first question how will it handle compare to the Monkey???
    Second question is that a good price???
    I rode most of last year on my 26" SS but raced My Klein in the Races that had more altitude changes, And now that I am riding the monkey it seems that any 26" is hard to switch back and forth too.
    I know the KM is versatile but I'd Rather leave it as a SS, and have a second geared bike, wether it be my Klein or another 29"
    who has an opinion?????

    my opinion is that you should get a full suspension with gears not a pair of hardtails

    just my 2 cents.
    Rudy Projects look ridiculous

    Price is decent, but not other-worldly.

    I'd get a good suspension seatpost for it, like the Tamer by Ecko (White Brothers). Get the Tricky Dick.

    No idea how it rides.

    have you ever been sorry for buying another bike?

    i think its a fair deal, of course if its not a demo, and the bike fits you. for a little more bling you can upgrade some of the heavier parts, fork and crank/bb.

    There are a some Fisher hardtails on eBay right now that look like they may be such bargains, I regret not having a need for one. I think there's a medium and a large and maybe even an XL. They tend to go for cheap. I've raced my Mt. Tam and it works wonderfully. I have one hardtail and one f/s right now and I'm building a second hardtail. Haven't decided whether to sell the first hardtail or make it into a single speed. (I won't really ride the single speed much, but it's a fun novelty to have.)

    Anyway you go, I doubt you'll regret owning a Fisher hardtail.
