    Fixin to buy my first Fuji!

    Guys, I'm about to pull the trigger on a 2017 Fuji Tahoe 1.3 29er. Please help me out and

    1.) give me reasons why I should reconsider before it's too late!

    Or

    2.) tell me how wise and perfect my choice is!

    I've really liked my 2016 Fuji Reveal 1.1, though that's a significantly different bike than what you're getting. It's a full suspension and is around the same price as the Tahoe 1.3.
    I've been impressed by the quality of Fuji's build.

    If you're looking for a solid, 29er cross country hardtail, you have a pretty good one picked out. In the past, I rode an Airborne Seeker, which was good also, though the drivetrain isn't nearly as good as what comes on the Tahoe 1.3. You might want to look at the Airborne Goblin though. It retails for less than the Tahoe 1.3 and has a much better fork. I'd say that the fork is the weak spot on the Tahoe 1.3. The Tahoe 1.1 is a major upgrade there, but you definitely pay for it. Anyways, I don't think you'll be disappointed whichever way you go. Enjoy it!

    Thanks. I'm looking forward to it!
