Earlier this week it was announced that Gary Fisher as a bicycle brand will be discontinued. Gary Fisher and his bikes aren’t going anywhere, but they will become a “Gary Fisher Collection” for Trek Bikes in 2011. There are pro’s and con’s of this which I won’t bore you of. The biggest pro I want to mention today is Trek’s “Gary Fisher Collection” Twenty Niner WSD bikes.
Mamba WSD $879.99
A price point 29er that came out a couple years back. 24 speeds, coil fork but nice high aluminum frame and disc brakes. A great place to try the 29er wheel size.
X-Caliber WSD $1539.99
On the other end of the 29er spectrum from the Mamba is the X-Caliber. 30 gears, with the new 10 speed SRAM X-7, hydraulic disc brakes and all the bells and whistles you need to keep you happy for a long time.
