Gary Fisher Tassajara, my new mountain bike

Oh MAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Today I just bought my NEW MOUNTAIN BIKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I decided to get a different colour than the one that they have in stock so I am going to pick it up next week. Here are the details.

Gary Fisher Tassajara

Here are the full specs. It's TOTALLY sweet. I got awesome front suspension and you can "turn off" the suspension too if you're climbing really big hills, which is useful here in San Francisco.

The Avid brakes are really intense and seems like you could stop on a dime with this thing. I also got Shimano Deore shifters which are totally insane too. And 27 freakin' gears!!!!!!!!!! It's super awesome.

They had 2 colours, Yellow and Black or Red and Black. They had the yellow in stock but it was a bit ugly and I really like the flame pattern on the red one, so I decided to wait a week. Can't wait for it, I am going to use it all the time. What an awesome bike!!
