    My Orange Crush.....Pretty much standard at the moment.. I have made a rear mech protector and chain stay protector in carbon for it. I just need to use it more then make a few more changes as I get used to it more and more.. I also have Speedplay Frog Clips for it and I use them for less demading rides when I dont need to worry about loose terrain and steep climbs. Loose OR steep I am OK with but still getting used to the Speedplays so use platforms from time to time too..

    it does have an asthetically pleasing frame, and as you say, the new minimalistic logo tone seems to work well with Marin's badging. The black paint certainly doesn't hurt it either...IMO of course. Thanks again for the compliment

    2011 Scott Scale Elite. Threw on a 50mm stem, oury grips, new saddle, easton EA70 seat post, Kenda Nevegal up front…

    All things considered, I'm really impressed with this bike. In the running for the best 29er geometry I've tried. I ride pretty aggressively, and this frame loves it. Just wish I had a 2x or 1x drivetrain.

    Kind of funny to see the chain on the big ring. I'd been playing around with the front derailleur before these were taken. For some reason can't get that last picture to rotate correctly, sorry.

    It is relatively simple to go 1x. Buy shorter bolts, and a new ring (bash guard is optional), remove the fd and shifters and voila, you have 1x.

    True. I guess I'm just wanting for the SRAM X01 in particular…but I really can't justify it.

    I wanted to try X01, but it is $1000, and I realized that I should just add a new rear derailleur and convert to 1x10. One more gear shouldn't be a $1000 improvement.

    Totally agree on the $. I already have 10 in the back (with a 36t), so it's definitely doable. My hesitation is more due to the crankset…but who knows if that's legitimate or just me coming up with excuses not to spend the time and money.

    Is it you want a new crank? If so, then there are many out there that cost less than an X01 but are 1x specific.

    2004 Gary Fisher Tassajara

    2004 Gary Fisher Tassajara. It's my first quality bike, I love the thing. It was barely ever ridden and like new when I bought it. Since this pic I replaced the pedals and grips, other than that it's all stock. I'm planning to upgrade the fork this spring to something better. My only regret is not getting into mountain biking years ago, I'm hooked!

    New Gary Fishers not real?

    Aren't the Garys real anymore? Did they start making them in a Walmart plant in China now or something? . Now you have me curious!

    Now days the Gary Fisher name is owned by Trek and added to a few Trek 29ers (the hardtails and the Superfly FS), now Gary Fisher is but a name with little meaning.

    You and Cannondalef9 are persuasive with your cheaper alternatives, haha. Yes, just looking to simplify. I don't need the big ring, and spend the vast majority of my time in the middle. I just saw an x01 system the other day after hearing so much about it and it was beautiful. I'll have to investigate these cheaper alternatives and use the search function a lot…I have heard good things about these wolf tooth front chainrings you posted...

    I got ya. I knew that Gary Fisher was a line made by Trek but I just read about how Trek just kind of rolled his stuff in with their normal line now and call them Gary Fisher Collection. Sounds like something Farberware would do with Paula Deen or that little raspy voiced chick Rachel whats-her-name.

    I've read quite a few interviews with Gary, he seems like a really cool guy. I bet somewhere down deep Mr. Fisher wishes he was still welding bikes together in a small shop located in Nowhere, USA. You know, when he thinks about stuff like that when he takes a smoke break from counting his money.

    Thanks for the info CannondaleF9! I learned something today.

    No, but I think that Raceface is better, as they were the first to come out with a narrow-wide chainring, correct?

    No. I believe sram was first with their xx1 rings, then wolf tooth, then race face

    I don't care who was first (other then for curiosities sake). I have the wolf tooth it works great and is very nicely milled and very stout. That said i also have a race face ring on order. I think the secret is the narrow wide spacing and it seems had to eff that up.

    Re: Post your Hardtail



    New to MTB. Picked this up as an entry level bike while I learn what I like/where I want to go with it.

    Current plans for upgrading are too go tubeless and put a more all around tie on the front (currently has AKAs on it which work week on the rest tire but the front ships out in deep gravelly sand on corners unless I am weighted perfectly).

    After that want to get and adjustable seat.

    Then it will be to convert to 1x10.

    Isn't the photo at the top of this page HUGE for you? BTW, hate to ruin anything for anyone, but Gary Fisher Bikes haven't been "real" Gary Fisher bikes for a lot longer than 2004. I had a 96' Paragon (awesome bike) that was made by Trek even back then. I think you have to go all the back to 93 or something like that for Gary Fisher stand alone bikes.

    No... Maybe my browser is the **** and rescaled it?

    Its more of a Gary fisher than the current "Gary fisher collection"

    Like Gary fisher has anything to do with the new bikes in any fashion.

    Besides, the geo in 1993 isn't ideal...

    Need to get me a new browser. Wasn't referencing your post of the Fisher either...... addressing CannondaleF9's assertion that 2004 models were "real fishers" not owned by Trek.
