    New, to me anyway, Gary Fisher Piranha. It replaces my old Trek 3700. This is what it looked like when I first got it home. I've made a few changes since then, changed the seat, clipless pedals, added my rear rack, and added a bunch of dirt to it.

    Here's a few shots of my new Rumblefish I. I've added grip shifters and a SRAM rear derailleur. Will get action shots when the snow melts.

    Biking on tropical Saipan Island

    We are a three Fisher family,soon to be five. Here is a '96 Xcaliber RX in an unusual 11 1/2 inch frame. It is ridden (hard) by my 6 year old son who has medaled with it riding the adult courses in local mtn bike races. No fear plus a light bike = fast. The 2004 GF Supercaliber 29er is ridden by his Dad. I'm a lot slower and finish last if at all in local Saipan races. I also ride the modified 96 GF Joshua Z which is incredibly light and now with a fox RP2 long throw on the back and a SID 120 on the front finally actualizes the potential of this simple and light frame without all the bobbing. Even I am fast on this bike. We have matching GF Sugars on the way. One Medium 17" on the boat headed this way as a full bike for the mom of the house and one XL 21" already here as a frame I am building up for me. 5 fish is a lot of sole. Put another way, when the chips are down, we go fishing.

    The forks came off a 2006 Kona Stinky. Its a Marzocchi Drop-Off Tripple. Got a lot of criticism from the bike shops being an XC bike with DH/FR suspension, but it was the cheapest approach for me on getting the best of both world. I also have an Giant Glory BTW and I prefer the Possum anyday

    here is my baby. It's been keeping me riding and "sane" for the last 11 yrs. It was origanly blue flake, I striped it down repainted it, put on a set of team issue decals. Changed fork to a manitou from the RS Indy that it came with. Other than that it is all stock. Nothing beats the old "Steely"

    '10 Gary Fisher Superfly 100, 17.5".

    Mods/upgrades:
    Wheels: Edge XC Clincher, Chris King Hubs
    Tires: S-Works Captain 2.2 2Bliss F, 2.0 R with regular tubes
    Seatpost: Crank Bros Joplin R (3" w/remote)
    Saddle: WTB Rocket V SLT
    Pedals: Sunline V-1
    Stem: Thomson Elite X4 50mm
    Bar: Easton Monkeylite CNT 685mm low rise
    Grips: Ergon GP1 Leichtbau
    Bonty XXX bottle cage (taking it off most likely cause I don't use it)
    Cheap Sette/Price Point frame protectors on fork crown and frame for cable rub

    Everything else stock.

    I'm pretty happy with how it is now. I might try it with faster tires, but the cornering grip these Captains has been growing on me (maybe cause I've been riding in hero dirt conditions recently). I might install a bell and cyclometer later when I feel like it. From the way it's built, you may wonder why I didn't get a Rumblefish. I actually wanted one, but I got a deal on this and the Rumblefish had a wait list.

    Chris,

    If you truly want a super light bike...dump those RXL wheels and get some stans hub/crest rim wheels. I just swapped mine out on my 2011 SF and lost just over a pound. Although I am still running the stock XO in the 2x10 setup, I went from 23lbs6oz to 22lbs2oz just by swapping the wheels. You could be sitting at just over 19lbs with that little change. The RXLs are advertised to be in the 1700gm range but in reality they are closer to 2000.

    Nice looking bike though. BTW...is the direct mount for your front derailleur missing?

    Really? The wheels felt pretty light. Where you running them tubeless before you got rid of them? Tubes could easily account for 1lb. Ill have to look into that thanks for the heads up. I am not a super light rider so I just didn't want to go to to light on the wheels so figured these would be good to go.

    I have a similar hitch rack. I've ordered a Rumblefish and will require a cross bar like yours to mount the bike on the rack. Does it work well? Any play forward and backward? I don't want my bike swinging on the rack.

    If you have a similar rack, you'll note that the bike connects using 3 rubber straps; 2 across the top of the top tube and 1 on the seat tube (vertically). This third one prevents the bike from swaying back and forth.

    I've used a Thule cross bar like the one pictured all last season with no problems.

    Chris,

    Yes! I do run tubeless. The actual weight of the RXL wheels with no tubeless rim-strips, no valve stems or skewers is 1950gms. So, by the time you put all the tubeless stuff on, you are looking at 2100gms. The Stan's wheels I got are the standard ZTR hub, ZTR crest rim, Supercomp spokes (220lb rider weight capacity) and they weigh in at 1550gms. Those are by no means their race-day wheel....but not their super duty all-mountain wheel either.....the weight savings (especially rolling weight) is huge!

    My 2007 XCal after I finished dropping the 185mm Elixer CRs on it last summer:

    I find it to be the perfect bike for anything the Lower Peninsula of Michigan has to offer (boy does it rock The Iceman).

    My 2011 Hifi Pro (with the seat WAY too high):

    Has been ridden around the block once, but I'm quite confident that I'll love thrashing it around the various awesome stuff the UP has to offer (I'm looking at you Copper Harbor Fat Tire Festival).

    Mine is its own bike stand! None of that fancy stick gadgetry needed!


    That was actually my worst fall to date, blood wise. I've done nothing but crash since I picked this bike up a month ago. It's just so damn fast!!!

    You guys need to stick adjustable seatposts in those RF1s. Trust me. 4" ones should do the trick.

    If you feel like it, try platform pedals and Five Ten shoes (their mtb ones, not skate ones) too, but the adj seatpost is super highly recommended... almost a must.

    I wonder if Red Shield would cover that rim. I doubt it, but I just wonder.

    Ya, that'd be the nice, but I looked at other pics and see that the low angle top tube makes the seat seem higher on all these models. I don't feel like a freak anymore. If I had bought a bigger frame along, I'd feel like I was on 19th century bike. The high seat might be why tyrone feels like he is losing control at high speeds and crashing all the time.

    Nope, no the seat, I just push myself way to hard when I ride alone or at the front of the pack. Thats the only time I crash. Just need to reign myself in a little bit!

    It also doesn't help that South Florida trails are so damn tight and technical!

    Same here--when I'm in front or ride alone, I also tend to push it. I really do think you guys should consider the adj seat. Put your seatpost down and try to ride the same high speed sections of trails. Having the seat out of the way increases your ability to guide the bike and flow so much.

    I put off trying one for a while, despite hearing the same from others, and now I'm considering it for my other bikes, but then I think that I should actually sell my other bikes since this Superfly 100 is so good.

    You can get the Front C29ssmax separate? Interesting. Hope you didn't pay much. Those come down to $500 a pair sometimes. My LBS didn't have anything 29er, but found that and suggested that to me when I had a wobbly wheel too, but I went with i9 enduros, something beefy.

    Yeah, I probably over paid for it at the LBS, and yeah, he got me just the front for now since there was really no savings over buying both at the same time.

    Well I finaly got my baby back from the powder coaters yesterday. I built it up last night. I switched over to a 1X8 set up, added a new stem, riser bar, seat post and seat. Still need to get a new pair of grips and the LBS has a Paul chain guide on order for me. Oh I also need to put new cables all around, just threw the old on there so I could get a test ride on it. Here is a before and after. I'm not sure if I want to order new decals for it or just leave it as is, what do you think?
    Before



    After

    Just remember,Where ever you go there you are...
