    is it decaled as a Gary Fisher or a Fisher? That would tell us if its pre or post 91 (or so). If its a Montare its probably from the 80s i would guess.

    try first flight bikes website and look up the fishers but I think he's only got older ones than you have. if you cant post pics we're gonna need lots of words describing it.

    thanks, i believe ive been there before and couldnt find it. but ill try again.

    in the meantime ill try to come up with some descriptive terms for the frame build.....

    edit: i looked at firstflight and it must be around a '91 or in that timeframe. the paint on mine is certainly more plain in comparison. the frame is the same configuration.

    i bought this bike as a "winter beater" for trail riding but am finding myself riding it in favor or my kona or cannondale (which is a dog).

    never thought id go from full suspension to hardtail to fully rigid in ten years. guess i must be a dinosaur of sorts.....

    thanks for your help!!!

    Here´s a pic from ´92 catalogue, mine is just like this one.
