    I like the Rockhopper

    The fork on the Tass is going to flex like a noodle. Also, I like the Avid mechanical discs over the Hayes Sole. However, the geometry on the Tass is unique. Many riders swear by the Genesis geometry. If you're one of them, then i say go with the tass as fit and feel are the most important things you need to consider.

    I would definitley go with the Tass, but personally am not to big on the hydro disc brakes.

    The Hayes Sole is not a good example of quality hydro disk brake, it's a extreamly poor effort considering they make a very odd product in there Mag series. Depending on the trails you ride hydros are awsome.

    Went with an on-sale Tassajara...

    LBS had the Tassajara Disc on sale for 725 so I had to go for it b/c I knew I wanted to upgrade the pedals to Crank Bros Candy SL's immediately.

    I liked the feel of the Tassajara and am looking forward to getting it out on the local trails asap.

    Thanks!
