    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:

    http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8069/8...a15e7db9_b.jpg

    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

    All finished.

    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.
    Stay tuned.

    Man it would suck if that log slipped out and your bike fell just as you clicked the shutter.

    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.

    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 :(

    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:

    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.

    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!
