    Gary Fisher Owners - The Official Picture thread

    I didn't see one for Gary Fishers, and the Specialized guys have a huge picture thread. So let's start one up! I'd like to hear your reviews on your own bike(s). What you like, what you don't. Comparos, etc.

    '08 Big Sur. All stock but the horn and Shimano 520's.

    I've got nothing to compare it to, since this is my first real mtn bike. But no problems so far, other than a broken chain link which I fixed on the trail, with some help from an experienced rider (learned something new that day - yay for Park Tools). I'd like to get something that I can ride during the week on the road/light trail, so I'm looking into that.

    08 X-Caliber

    Bought within the past week. I was looking for a new bike to upgrade from a Trek 3700 that had been served its purpose of fun and racing well. I test rode the cobia, paragon, and x-caliber. I also tried the specialized stump
    jumper and the fisher pirahna. I just love the feel of the Cobia/X-caliber, and ended up going with the X-caliber.

    2007 Big Sur

    This was my first project bike built from the frame up, so not quite what you'd get from the LBS:
    Big Sur frame - Large
    Crank, FD, RD, cassette - XT
    Shifters - LX
    Fork - RS Dart 3
    Wheels/Hubs - Rolf Dolomite (super lite and beautiful)
    Brakes/Levers - Avid Ti V brakes (sorta color matched to frame)
    Bars/Stem - Titec Big Al/Hellbent
    Seat/Post - WTB/Sette
    Pedals - Shimano 535
    Tires - Maxxis Ignitors

    Weighs in at just under 25 pounds. Not bad considering most parts were leftovers

    Sweet ride pigskin. What kind of tires are those? How do you like them on rocky, hard- packed trails as compared to the Bonty Jones tires? TB

    If I recall the Big Sur came stock with a Fox, but not sure which model. The Dart was just an e-bay special. My primary focus initially was keeping the build cost low (most parts where leftovers), but I see now that the Dart just won't cut it. Although a great price, it isn't at all what I need.

    My '06 Cake 2 DLX (heavily modified towards Clyde class trail bike)...very little remains stock.



    The Hope brakes and custom wheels are the newest changes. Weight is sitting a little under 30lbs as shown.

    Other changes: XT shifters and deraillerus, XTR cables, Thomson post, WTB saddle, Hope skewers, stem, spacers and seatpost clamp, EA70 hi-rise
    bars, ODI Rogue grips, Purely custom stem and bar caps, brakes and wheels, eggbeater pedals, XT cassette, new chainring (middle), eNVy Ring
    Thing plate.

    New headset (I'm not fond of the stock semi-sealed job) coming soon....maybe FSA or King.

    The Cakes make nice all-day trail bikes....heck, I did my first ever Century on it

    Here is my L Superfly

    She is so quick and so snappy I guess the word would be. Couldn't be happier.

    Man I forgot how good looking that bike is. Almost got one of those but frame was small and just over my price range. Will get a pic of my stock 08 Wahoo up soon.
