    Used GF for beginner?

    I'm trying to pick up a used GF bike off craigslist, but don't know what model to get. The only model I know is the Hoo-Koo-E-Koo (after the indian tribe and trail of the same name up on mount Tamalpais in northern california), but I'm not sure what the best of the bunch is.

    Prices are all over the place, and I'm prepared to travel a good distance for a good bike. So I guess my questions are: what are some of the better GF models and what should I test out when I go out to see the bike?

    Bikepedia is a decent resource: http://www.bikepedia.com/QuickBike/B...nd=Gary+Fisher. For a given year, you can check which models were sold and what their retail prices were. I picked up a gently used Mt Tam on CraigsList a while ago, and Bikepedia was a good resource to check what the stock components were and whatnot.

    Off the top of my head, I think some of the better hardtail models (or models that used to be hardtails, at any rate) are...
    Procaliber
    Supercaliber
    Xcaliber
    Mt Tam
    Big Sur
    Paragon
    Hoo Koo E Koo

    Why the Gary Fisher loyalty?

    I did too for a second. I think they're pretty much all used after junior high. A used gary fisher isn't a bad idea either.
