    Possumrider wants to buy a XC mid range

    "Possumrider" looking for new XC ride. Currently Ride Fisher Possum XT( 32-3/4 lbs, want to be in the 25-27 lb range) Tested; Fisher Paragon (felt a little weird), Fisher HI Fi Pro(Loved the ride), Trektop fuel 98 (looks great), Specialized Epic (friend rode one & loved it) Kona Kula 29 (Looks great) Titus?Yeti, Turner? ( probobly out of my price range). First full season xc racing, want a bike thats fast, dependable and can also be used every day. Torn between FS & HT. Head says 29er will be faster, heart says FS will be funner! 48 yrs old, 180 lbs 6' 0" . Oh yeah, I want to be in the $2,000.00 range LBS will help on Trek & Fisher rigs.

    How about a GF Supercaliber. 29 wheels, short travel. fairly lightweight (my Lg is at 27 pounds with only a few changes using parts that I had in my basement.) Can get at LBS. I have a 29er hardtail too, and although more comfy than a 26" hardtail, it is still a hardtail...
