    Smile First Mountain Bike: 2000 Gary Fisher Big Sur

    Hello all,

    I've been lurking around the forums for the last few weeks reading reviews on various bikes and think I finally found a winner. A few days ago I found a 2000 Gary Fisher Big Sur on Craigslist for under $200 and after trying it out I couldn't say no! It definitely has some wear and tear cosmetically but rides great and even has some new Shimano XT derailleurs on it.

    I'm pretty excited, but I also know that it is going to need some upgrades over time. I'll probably head over to the Beginners Forum to ask about good gear, but I wanted to say "Hi" and officially introduce myself into the Gary Fisher club.

    Once I get it cleaned up a bit I might post some pictures :-)

    There is no charge for awesomeness......or attractiveness.

    Good rep does not wash out the bad, nor the bad the good.

    The 2000 Big Sur was my first Gary Fisher. I rode the crap out of it for six years before buying a new one. I hung on to it. That bike is still solid. I play around on it in my backyard from time to time. Enjoy.

    I bought a Gary Fisher Joshua last year for 40 dollars. I sold my hardtail that I paid a lot more for. It's a much better ride than my entry level trek bike. Not only was it cheap, but it was small too and a perfect fit. It's probably a 96 and has an obnoxious color scheme. I love the bike.

    I get funny looks from the other mountain bikers on the trail cause my bike is "oldskool" or maybe it's because it's brightly colored. The old full suspension I have is definatly better than no suspension and the bike is better suited for the rocky **** I ride.
