    Tassajara Disc or Kikapu????

    Stopped at the LBS last night to see if the new Tassajara disc was in yet. Noticed they are clearing out the 04s. I can get a Kona Kikapu for the same price as the 05 Tass disc. Any thoughts? BTW I ride mostly singletrack no extreme. Does the tapered vs splined BB make that much difference?

    Depends on a few things. The geometry and feel on the Tass are gonna be different from the Kikapu due to the whole Genesis Geometry. Personally, I like the Genesis Geometry thing and I think it works great for XC. Guess your gonna have to see which one fits you better? One thing I can say is that the Fisher frames are STIFF... that can be good or bad depending on the type of riding you do. If you can get a deal on a Kikapu to the point where it's the same or slightly more than the Tass (~$850) then that would be hard to pass up. Konas have a good rep for durability too. First thing you gotta do though is ditch the toe clips

    That was my plan, for either bike I'm going to bring over my Shimano 6?? platforms and my WTB saddle from my old Cannondale. I'm going out today & ride the GF

    Not bad, didn't seem to notice much difference between the Tass & my c'dale. I'm leaning this way due to the better shock (lock-out) and hays brakes.
