    Cool, I have been kicking around the idea of upgrading the current fork I have on it now. It's a Manitou SX-E. It's been a good fork, but I think it is starting to get a bit tired. I have been thinking of going with one of the XC32TK, or the 28. I know they are the bottom of the line, but they have to be better than the 10 yol. fork I am running now.

    It has gone through some changes though over the years. Painted it yellow with team issue stickers


    then I stripped it and powder coated it red. This stuff is awsome. Changed the handle bars, stem, seat post and seat. Still running the originale rims, hubs, BB and cranks. They are all still flawless after all these years.

    This is how she looks today, I can't tell you how much I love this bike and the way it rides.
    Just remember,Where ever you go there you are...

    Back riding a Gary Fisher

    Well, about a year after breaking my 2006 Cake 3 top tube riding in Atlanta, I am back riding another Cake.

    In the interim I was riding a 2004 Trek Fuel 70 frame that I found on Craigslist. I swapped out the my components in a hotel parking lot while in Atlanta on business. Unfortunately I just broke the right Rocker link.

    A couple months ago I found a front triangle for a 2004 Cake 3 on Ebay that I decided to buy as insurance. I am a Clyde and stuff has a tendency to break. Trek has been great about frame warranty replacement on the hardtail I purchased new, but will not honor the warranty on bikes I did not buy new so I will keep piecing together franken-bikes until I can justify the purchasing a new FS bike at some point int he future.

    She needs a new paint job really bad, but I can't bring my self to strip/blast off Gary's Signature on the downtube...

    Yes, finally got a fisher back in the garage. Been riding fisher bikes since '98 until march this year, got a new trek superfly 100.

    But over the past weeks finally had the time to rebuild an old Aquila frame. Bought a the frame over the internet and used some parts I had lying around and built a single speed bike.

    Gary Fisher Owners - The Official Picture thread-photo-14-07-13-21-08-15.jpg

    The only thing left to do is press in the headset, but I had no press this evening.
    Main specs.
    GF Aquila 19" frame, CK headset
    Fox F80RLT fork
    Wheels built around DT 240 hubs and DT 4.2 rims
    Hope Mono Mini brakes, rear brake line could be a bit longer
    Shimano XT crank, set up with 34-16

    Here is my 03 Paragon I bought her last year on Ebay and I thought I was getting a good deal for $175 but dam I love the bike so much I would have paid allot more for her. All stock drive train and it came with the Hyd magura julie brakes already on her just had to bleed the back one. I changed shock oil and the Seat and Tires because the originals both sucked and where just old. This is my first 29er and now my poor old 01 Giant XTC SE2 don't get to much action these days.

    Just put this together for a friend who is looking to getting into biking. Its a 07 GF Wahoo. I picked the bike up complete less wheels and tires for $75 had a set of Mavic X221 from and older bike and some mis match tires Bontrager Jones XR 2.20 in the front and a Continental Mountain King 2.20 in the rear. Still waiting on the 8 speed cassette I ordered a Sram PG-850 and thats it after some adjusting and tuning I am sure. Should have about $100 invested in it when its all said and done so a good deal for my friend I think

    1999 Aquila

    Hereīs an item I shot at the bay right before christmas:









    Itīs in the state I bought it except for the stem that was too short for me, but I had adequate replacement. Also have some red Shimano DX brake levers NOS. But I donīt want to change a lot. Maybe triggers and fork. 8-speed triggers becoming hard to find. Whatīs the first year the Manitou Black was built, anybody?

    J79...I have a 98 Aquila that I have rebuilt and upgraded everything except the headset. I see a rear disc on your bike and was wondering how you went about installing that? Is it an adapter or a welded bracket. I was thinking about getting a rear disc mount welded on but didn't know if you or anyone else had any experience with that...

    Thanks!

    I fitted an A2Z DM-uni adapter which I got on Ebay, about $40.
    The adapter needed minor modification, some trimming to fit the frame nicely. I have been running it on my Aquila for about a year, been using Hope Mono Mini 160mm hydraulic brakes.

    So far I haven't had any issues with this set up. The only downside of this setup is that removing the rear wheel is a bit more difficult, it doesn't slide out as you are used to. You have to undo the nut and slide out the axle completely, also reinstalling the wheel takes a bit more care as well when you trie to refit the axle. I converted the wheel to tubeless, so that the chance of running a flat is minimized.
    But other than that i can not see any reason why not to convert the bike. The steel frame of the Aquila is very nice, and with a modern setup a great bike!

    love the way it rides to much to replace it with anything else.
    Ah, I love it...I've been wondering what a fork upgrade would do for the ride. Did you go with the same travel (63mm)? I'm not very versed in rebuilding bikes, just love to ride. I've noticed the original Rock Shox Indy forks that I have tend to "bottom out" when riding hard. I've been advised to look for a fork with the same amount of travel (63mm) as the original build if I'm going to replace.

    Awesome looking 98 HooKoo, man! Thanks for sharing!

    Some say there are no stupid questions, but I'm about to push the envelope. Does anyone know if the 2009 Piranha can fit a set of 27.5 wheels and tires? I want a 29er, but have a buddy selling me an 09 Piranha and for $400 really thinking about it, just want something a bit bigger than the 26er. Thanks in advanced.
