Just got this warranty replacement frame from trek to replace my 1997 Klein pulse comp. it is an 2005 ac/dc frame. Absolutely awesome ride. With the carbon rear I feel less fatigue.
Still a few days away from getting it finished, but this is the direction my Fisher has taken:
That's a 42cm road bar (I don't like MTB-style drops), SRAM Apex shifters, 10sp X7 front derailer & X9 rear, X7 42/28 crankset, Cane Creek Crosstop carbon levers, BB7 MTB calipers, with Problem Solvers Travel Agents. I'm happy with the brake feel on the brifters and the 'cross levers: short travel with enough modulation not to lock up.
I still need to replace the 12/27 cassette with an 11/32 or 34 later on, but since I took some of this stuff of my CX bike, it's what I have to work with for now.
The picture was taken during my alpine cross this year from the Tegernsee to the lake garda. Here I am on the 2900 meter-high Eisj÷chl, it was a great travel at 380 km and 11,000 hm
Final weight is 22.9lbs, which isn't bad considering road bars and levers weigh quite a bit more than MTB versions.
Once I get to 10 posts I can post pics of my 1996 Gary Fisher Paragon winter renovation project. Decided to get it soda blasted (looks really cool) and will decide on a powder coat.
Bought brand new in 2007. Gary Fisher Tassajara.
Then in 2010, I became active in Mtn biking and just last week, I built her up with the deals I got online and local shops. Here she is at 21.54 lbs, $1350.71 later. :)
Your bike is strangley appealing to me. Nice look.
Man it would suck if that log slipped out and your bike fell just as you clicked the shutter.
It looks like its floating in thin air...
Here's my 2012 Rumblefish Elite complete with a flat carbon bar, ergon grips with stubby bar ends and Purgatory 2.4 front captain 2.2 rear[IMG]http://i566.photobucket.com/albums/s...pse1ac8156.jpg[/IMG]
I just realized we're not going to be seeing new Fisher bikes in this thread anymore. :(
...Fisher "Signature", I guess, but that's as good as it will get.
Nice rides. I'm building a 2005 Opie, soon to be done. pics coming soon! ;)
Wow, love this thread!!! Some great looking GF's in here. I had been thinking of replacing my frame on my old 99 Paragon but i think i'm going to keep it. I'll post pics when I get the new parts installed.

Built this from ground up. Frame and fork from eBay, Love this bike. Super fun to ride.:thumbsup:
2011 Marlin SS
2010 advance disc
I just purchased/traded for both of these in the past month and have about $290 invested grand total in the 2.
Wow, this thread has gone on a long time. I posted way back on the first page with post #9 and the 2008 X-cal, thought I'd do an update.
That was a great bike.
but it failed at the seat tube top tube junction and was replaced by a 2008 Paragon:
It too failed at the tt-st junction, and was replaced by a 2009 Paragon:
but then, it was stolen while road tripping in northern Idaho :(
....to be continued.
the insurance check from the stolen 2009 Paragon covered what what was now a "Gary Fisher Collection" 2011 Trek Paragon.
But, going back in my history, my first Gary Fisher was a 2004 Marlin:
While I still have that frame, the parts have gone on to give new life to other bikes. I also bought my wife a 2004 Wahoo, that eventually went one of my daughters:
....to be continued.
Along the way I picked up a 1997 Joshua X1 for another daughter
And also a 2006 Advance that I use as a commuter and loaner mountain bike
and I thought this would be the end of the Gary Fisher story for me.
....to be continued.
About a month ago, I happened upon what must be one of the last "new" Gary Fisher bikes sold, basically a "new old stock" 2010 Rumblefish 2. Just my size! It was while doing a search for other folks that might have the same bike that I stumbled across this thread. Hope everyone enjoys the pictures!
