    1999 Gary Fisher Mt Tam

    I bought this Monday from Craigslist. Originally, I called to check out a stump jumper frame he had but it was too big so he said he had a Mt Tam Frame with Rock Shox Sid fork for $70. I jumped in my car and drove 45 minutes to where the seller was. The frame and fork had Oxidation but managed to clean it up with sand paper and blue polish.



    As I was looking around, I told him I liked the components on the Stumpjumper and asked him if he wanted to part with them. He did so gave me all the parts below for $105. (They look like the original parts for the Mt Tam minus the Avid V brakes.



    I bought a set of XC717 with XT hub yesterday.


    Items coming are:

    XT front derailleur
    KENDA TOMAC SMALL BLOCK 8 TIRE 26 X 1.95 Kevlar Folding Blk/Blk
    KENDA NEVEGAL TIRE 26 X 2.1", Dtc, Black, Kevlar Folding
    MAXXIS ULTRALIGHT TUBE
    ROX ULTRALIGHT RIM STRIP
    JAGWIRE CABLE AND HOUSING KITS Black, Brake
    JAGWIRE CABLE AND HOUSING KITS Black, Derailleur
    SHIMANO CN-7701 9SP CHAIN
    INNOVATIONS BRASS PRESTA VALVE ADAPTORS
    SHIMANO V-BRAKE NOODLE Noodle 90 Dgr
    SHIMANO V-BRAKE NOODLE Noodle 135 Dgr
    WHEELS MFG PRESTA VALVE SAVER Convert Schrader To Presta Rim Hole

    I will also switching my brakes to Moto since I race motorcycles. I got into mountain biking because I thought it was a good training tool for motorcycle racing and now I'm hooked.

    A few things Mountain biking has helped me in is strengthening my legs, getting used to the rear stepping out, and basically getting used to riding conditions unthinkable on the race track.

    wouldn't say the 10yr old frame and fork are that great of a deal. i'd say you got a deal on the components though

    It seems like it's a better bike than my Hardrock that I bought for $400.
