    Is this a Sugar 4?

    Hey All,

    I've always been a Specialized Rider, but saw a pretty good deal on (what the seller claims to be) a Gary Fisher Sugar 4.

    I was having trouble matching it with anything on bikepedia and was hoping you Fisher enthusiests could give me a year and/or model?

    What would you guess this bike would be worth if it was in decent shape and didn't need any suspension work?

    Thanks,

    B

    I think I finally found it. It must be a 2005.
    BikePedia - 2005 Gary Fisher Sugar 4+ Complete Bicycle

    What would you estimate I should pay for this bike used?

    Really 65 views and no comments??

    How about, do you think this bike would be worth $350? Is that a good deal or about the going rate for a 2005 Gary Fisher Sugar 4?

    p.s. The rack over the rear tire isn't staying on it, if I buy it.

    ^^^ Perhaps, 65 people are more polite / tactful than I.
    Bought a 2005 Sugar 293 (29-er) new for $1500 rode it until it broke at the shock mount, got a WR Hi-Fi rode it until the carbon stays snapped, and am now on an ALU Hi-Fi. Yes, new parts were involved each time, yet I really have had 3 bikes now thanks to the warranty replacements (WR).

    For a 7 yr old 26" bike w/o discs, a history of frame failure, and old / out-dated suspension, and without a warranty, I would not even touch it. If that's your budget, a used hardtail FTW.

    The best is the one you want to ride most often..

    See that is the type of response I was looking for!

    I appreciate your honesty. I'm currently riding an 09 Specialized Hardrock, but saw this post and didn't know if it would be a steal or not...

    Is this a pretty common response for this bike/model? Do they really break THAT much?!

    Gary Fisher still rides his sugar and he can ride any bike he wants, the design may be outdated ,,,,but it works , the bike kicks but in tight single track XC as intended.
