This is a left over 2012 marlin I got for under $500. I went in wanting a cobia or rig and left with this. I've added origin 8 all mountain bars. I've ordered grips, tires, saddle, and I'm shopping for a g2 Reba, Sid, recon air on eBay daily.
super pumped to find a "take off" 2013 F29 140mm 34mm stanchion CTD Talus fork for my Rumblefish.
This is more GF than Trek. I feel it has the awesome GF design and refined by Trek to make a killer bike. I added a Fox 34mm chassis 110-140mm travel Talus CTD fork, dropper post, flat carbon bar, ergon grips, 2.4 Purgatory front tire, 2.2 Captain rear tire. LOVE IT!!
What will $200 get you????
Heres my $200 Gary Fisher Rig SS, bought it here in South Korea... love it so far its a 21inch 29er....Attachment 774965Attachment 774966Attachment 774967Attachment 774968Attachment 774969Attachment 774970
A few changes
I had to ditch my SRAM X7 double for an X9 triple to get better gearing (and it's lighter). Running 48/33 up front now, along with a Carbon Cycles rigid fork, so it's more of a gravel bike. I'm looking to upgrade to a much lighter all carbon rigid fork before spring, and mount some CX bike brake calipers so I can get rid of the Travel Agent adapters.
With deals like that, I'm thinking about moving to Korea - South that is. (:-))
Can't wait till I can post my pictures of mine stache7

Re: Gary Fisher Owners - The Official Picture thread
My Gary Fisher Tass Craigslist find. I don't know much about it other than its all stock and in great shape.
Hi newbie here.
This is my 2006 GF Wahoo disc.
Got it from CL. All stock, female owner, barely ridden (nubs can be seen on tires), lbs maintained. Got it for $175, is it a good find?
New around here....here is my my Fish...right at about 22 pounds...

I picked up this 1991 Procaliber last night at my LBS. Should be a fun resto. Here's an as found photo, then another after two hours of cleaning and tinkering.
^^^^Looks very nice^^^^
Keep us posted.
2002 Sugar 3+ w/rebuilt rear shock and new front RocShox Recon:
Alpinord...what kind of brakes are you running? It kinda looks like the rear "Noodle" is on the drivers side. Just curious.
Also, who rebuilt your rear shock? I had mine done by Push, but mine is also the Fox. Yours looks like the AD-5 by Cane Creek.

I'm looking into 29ers and have been looking for a Gary Fisher 'lineage' from the Sugars to ???? the Rumblefish??? Any suggestions or insights would be appreciated.
Eerrr...I'm sorry, I meant the drive side (Right) In the pic it looks like the noodle is on the right side.

The middle Mt Tam has been sold, but was replaced with a two tone 1986 Mt Tam more in my size. Still working on that one.

This is the bike that got me into mountain biking. Bought it used around 1999 for $180. GF Aquila, pretty good except for the fork which sucked almost the entire time. Still got me up and down the trails though!
I sold it almost 10 years later and got $150 for it, but almost immediately regretted it. A few months later this nice HKEK popped up on Craigslist for $180. Just like my Aquila but with XT components and unfortunately the same terrible fork. :P
I just had to put a better fork on it. The Tora coil is heavy, but it soaks up the bumps nicely for under $200. Added some wider bars, WTB Moto Race tires, etc to make it trail worthy.
I have that exact same bike, What fork did you end up using on it. And how did it change the handiling? Awsome bikes. I love my hkek, and still ride it everyday. I just can't seem to part with it.
PS. Never mind I just re-read you post and saw were you said what fork it is. I am interested in the travel on the fork though. Thanks
Thanks! It's the Tora TK Coil 100mm. It's a little heavy, being a low end fork but it REALLY improved the ride. The additional travel, plus damping and the ability to lock it out makes it a decent trail fork. I think this model has now been superceded by the "XC32TK" but I don't know if that one has canti bosses.
