    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

    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.

    Nice study in grey, Nuker

    I can spot the WTB saddle and XT cranks (though in '04 those may have been stock), but is it stock other than that?

    Nice.

    Mine is in to the shop for shock and fork service and for a once over of the pivots (things my home garage are just not set up for yet). Though I'm getting the headset swapped while I'm at it (blue King no-threadset).

    One example of Gary Fisher’s ill fated designs, but it’s really quite nice!

    Juicy 7’s will replace the Magnesiums, Totem Solo Air will replace the Travis Intrinsic, and maybe some Truvativ stuff will replace some of the Bontragers.

    Still, I like being ‘‘different’’ in the freeriding community; not a common bike amongst them.

    Keep up the XC’s!

    Oh...I should post now that I've weighed it....My Cake, as shown above, is 30.08 lbs. Not bad at all, considering how much I've tuned it from long travel XC toward trail / light AM. (BTW, that weight includes the mud on it from the last few days of riding before I took it in for a fork and shock service...I'll have to weigh it clean as it will likely be just a hair under 30).

    Edit: I pegged it...got it on to the scale when clean and it is 29.95 lbs. That be some sweetness for a 5x5 clyde ride

    x-post(photos) from the 29er forum, i've had a rig and a monkey for a while now. used the monkey while up in alaska in feb as a snow bike with 26x3" tires in her. never dawned on me to check the fit in the rig. i just assumed they wouldn't. turns out they do. i don't know if tire clearance changed from 06/07 to 08, but in my 07, there's plenty of room. the advantages of the 26 x 3" tire are better flotation and less trail damage. for snow, sand, mud, and soft early spring trails they are incredible. pressure can be dropped to less than ten psi on snow and sand, and can easily be ridden in the mid teens without bottoming out. on really gnarly terrain they over better shock absorbtion, more traction, and more stability. outside diameter is around 27.5".

    froth19 - did you buy your paragon as a complete or frame? why not the superfly? and what was the stock weight? sick looking bike, and pretty darn light.

    KCK, bought the bike as a complete, but had parts from my scalpel that I had inteded on swapping. The original build was probably about 27lbs. I originally planned on a superfly, but when I called to buy one, they were out of them and apparently they aren't producing anymore until the 09 model. With that build, hung from a superfly, I might be sub 20lbs. Oh, well...I'm loving the paragon!

    Here's a blast from the past. I originally purchased a joshua z1 somewhere between 96-97. I cracked the frame at 99 and had it replaced with a joshua f3. It's not the prettiest of bikes but it is a Fisher to say the least.
