    Possible Gary Fisher sighting, not bikes, the MAN

    During my ride with friends today, I saw a man who resembles Gary Fisher. It was just a glance as he passed me on a black single speed. Roughly same height, build, age, glasses, and goatee.

    I asked my riding friends if he looked familiar to them. Their response...

    Friends, "nope"
    me, "He looks like Gary Fisher."
    Friends, "Who is Gary Fisher."
    me, "Gary Fisher bicycles."
    Friends, "never heard of that brand."
    me, "seriously? Gary Fisher, father of mountain biking."

    Then it hit me, these friends started mtb 2004. I started in 1990.

    Later, I got a better look at him as he was descending...I was still climbing.

    Does any know which city Gary Fisher resides in? I'm in a suburb of Los Angeles.

    Doubt it was him.

    I think he makes his home in Nor Cal - but according to his twitter feed he is in Europe for all of the big bike shows going on over there.

    Not sure what suburb of LA you are in - but the owner of Michaels Bikes in Newbury Park looks like Gary as well.
