I usualy can't find much I like to demo, but If there is a GF HIFI 29er there it is worth tossing a leg over.

Check out some of Trek's trail bike offerings...I think you may find something you'll like.

I demo'd the GF Hi-Fi Pro (26") at the Alafia FTF and it was a blast!  Rode it out at Boyette for the whole morning that Saturday...

What's a trail bike? Does that mean it has 80mm of travel?  ;D

So, you liked it I take it?  That was one of the bikes I was considering before I got my Ibis.
Ibis Mojo SL-23.81 lbs.
Ibis Tranny-20.75 lbs.

Yeah, it was pretty sweet.  Took me a coupla miles of singletrack to get used to Gary's 'G2' geometry.  Not that it was bad, just different from my bike.  It was pretty nicely spec'ed, and I really liked the new Avid Elixirs.  Overall, a nice handling, light, 5 inch travel bike.

Props to Trek and Randy from Olivers our local LBS. I made a day of it riding 4 different steeds. The Trek rep was super helpful and took the time to set each bike for me equipping me with pedals, adjusting shox and fork pressures and saddle height. The new Trek Top Fuel is a BEAST :o The 5" travel carbon EX is another really cool bike that I hope to get a feel for again tommorow at Alafia.
