My Ride: What else?

I've read up on first timers on 29ers and they all say its personal preference and to ride around on one to see how it feels. My other choice is a 2009 Fuji Nevada 1.0.


I'll be checking these bikes out today and tomorrow, hopefully I'll land one in time for the weekend!
Gary Fisher is solid brand, can't go wrong with any of his bikes (I can't view the link at work)

Yes 29ers are a matter of preference, I've been riding them for a while, but there are tons of people who still prefer the 26 inch wheel (including a few pros) so don't get hung up on either. Just go with the one that feels most comfortable
