    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 Fishers ill fated designs, but its really quite nice!

    Juicy 7s 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 XCs!

    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".

    08 paragon's

    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.

    In the "smiles per miles" ranking I'd put my F4 at the top of the list. Back in the day that thing was unbeatable in terms of price, took a pounding like no other bike before or after and offered a relatively (at the time) decent suspension (the rear lockout helped).

    Here are some pics of my dinosaur:

    2007 TGary Fisher Opie

    2007 Fisher Opie

    Sette Edge o/s stem
    Sette Duo o/s handlebar
    Sette lockdown grips
    Bontrager 400mm seatpost
    Bontrager crz+ sport saddle
    Crank Brother Acid pedals

    Everything else stock.

    I like my bike. I really like my bike. However, im trying to LOVE my bike. im upgrading little by little. next i wanna upgrage cranks, cassete and chain. Forks i wont upgrade until the stock ones break down. wanna upgrade to disc brakes as well (even though i dont really think i need them). i dont have the luxury (or money) of upgrading to top of the line components so i try to upgrade to to the best i can afford. Hopefully i can upgrade bike in a couple of years and give this one to my son.
    If i knew how much fun i'd be having i would have started mtb'ing LOOOONG time ago

    Upset 08 Tassajara

    My new 08 Tass, been riding it hard for 3 weeks, apparently to hard... its in the shop waiting for replacement parts...

    This is an old picture, I changed out the seat, b/c the stock one was less comfortable than an iron maiden, and I put a nice set of DK bmx pedals on it for more grip.

    Already wanting a soft tail tho... its my second GF if you count the old Mullet 20" that I used to race, easily the heaviest bike at the track but it never broke and I still won sometimes..

    This is my 08 Marlin, still stock.

    During the next 2 weeks I'll put some egg-beater pedals and a new saddle (the Bontrager is just killing me). I'm not sure wich one to pick though... Probably will go for a Selle Italia.

    Until the end of the year I'll go for a XT group, and hopefully a FOX 32 F100 RLC.

    Some more Fishers

    Here are some of my Fishers, the old Sugar is going to get rebuilt for fun this summer. How 'bout the old Procaliber? Got it back from my brother a few weeks ago. Bit different from the new one.

    Mi HiFi

    I finally brought my HiFi home. It has been in the shop since day two with rear brake problems that still aren't fixed but I just have to ride.
    I wanted to post its first photo in its natural environment, dirty and in the woods. 1 out of 2 isn't bad.
    It is last years model and they were giving it away so I had to adopt it.

    You can see that I have already started down-grading it. Gel seat, pump, plastic pedals and a couple of cages .

    Without the ugly bike and ........

    Here's the river and mountains on a relatively smoky day without the bike and bridge rail. Second is the bike at the foot of a cottonwood, with the runout zone of an old avalanche just behind and the Eklutna Glacier in the background.

    Thanks

    I can confirm it is 25.1lbs in it's current setup with 130mm forks. Im actually 100kg so its not a full racey setup just light

    However im wanting a new SID for it and a few other bits which by my maths will take it down to 23.4lbs Not bad for a frame that design that's 4 years old, just shows how good a frame it really is IMO.

    Good job! My 2008 GF Wahoo Disc.

    Here's my first bike in over 45yrs. Just had it a couple of weeks and loving it. I think though that my 58yr old body is telling me to purchase a Thudbuster seatpost.

    how do you like those Mountain King (2.2?) Supersonics btw? What type of terrain do you ride them on? how's the puncture resistance?


    thnx

    The MK Supersonics are hard to judge really.

    Off Road they grip like crazzy - in fact for me it was a little "Too" grippy but im strange like that They don't roll very well on road either.

    I've mounted them with Stans and sealant - had them mounted a few months and haven't punctured once - ride on fairly nice smooth tracks no sharp rocks etc.


    Just worked out with the future upgrade my Cake will be into the 22lb range Who need's a HIFI XC!

    '08 Big Sur. Mods(most just added today) FSA 0s-99 csi stem, FSA K-force carbon flatbar, FSA sl-k carbon seatpost, clear oury gips, E13 bashgaurd, and crank bros candy sl pedals. The bashguard might not stay on. I don't really need it, but it gives me more ground clearance and I don't generally use my largest ring. I had a '98 Schwinn moab2 before this and it was ok, but this bike is a huge improvement. I love Fisher's Genesis Geometry. The bike climbs effortlessly, is very light weight, and is silent on the trails. I looked at the Big Sur, a Stumpjumper, and the Scott Scale 40 and I think I made the right choice.

    Fisher Fishin'

    Just wanted to coment on the bikes here. You guys have some great bikes and a lot of knowledge. I am new here and just started riding again. I am currently waiting on my 2009 Marlin Disc. I know some folks were asking about 2009 bike info and there is not much out there. I did find a GF pitchbook at http://www.treknology3.com/download/...-evolution.pdf I know the 2009's are priced up about 15-20 % and are said to be out in july.
    Again I am new and am enjoying everyones knowledge and bikes,

    Hi all, this is my first post here; I'm not new to mountain biking (been riding since 1994 when I was twelve and have worked in a bike shop since high school, now finishing up college) and I've been a lurker here on and off over the years. Figured this would be a good way to introduce myself...

    <a href="https://picasaweb.google.com/e.grootveld/IdahoPhotos/photo#5201746799166418818"><img src="https://lh6.ggpht.com/e.grootveld/SDBRJ1_W74I/AAAAAAAAAJE/eSJ61B8_P-4/s800/DSC_6472-01.jpg" /></a>

    It's an 08 HiFi Pro, with a bunch of upgrades... I'm really happy with how it turned out; just need to settle on some tires now. I'm thinking maybe some Conti MK's. I'll get it cleaned up and take some better photos of it, but for now here it is loving life in Idaho.

    I'm originally from central IA, but have an internship in Hailey, ID (just south of SV) and am loving the riding out here! There's more mountain biking in IA than most people think, but nowhere near what it is out here!

    latest... upgraded the X7 shifters to X9, installed 11-34 SRAM 990 cassette (much better ratio spread for the trails I ride, plus the red anodized goes well with my black w/ red accent theme) ... oh and Kenda Nevegals DTC 2.35 front/2.1 rear... waaay better than the Jones XR's...
















    next upgrade will be a red Chris King headset - just need to install... [EDIT: installed!]






    cheers

    Probably because the front rim is a Sun Rims MTX.

    Not a great picture...also not a great bike compared to some of these, lol, but here's my '06 Kaitai.

    Right now it's got the same wheel that's on the front on the rear also...they're horrible. Wienmann or something like that...I'm going back to all black as soon as I have the money or I might try the Ryhthms since I like that graphite color. Also going to go with some wider tires and a new front fork...although none of that will probably happen any time soon :/. I just hope I don't have a major breakdown, I wouldn't know what to do if I couldn't ride.

    I'm back on a Fisher

    I know I posted this in another thread but figured I'd show the 09 Marlin Disc where I can.
    It's been over six years since I've been able to ride. Had a bunch of surgeries on my foot and a lot of hardware added to it as well.

    Here is my old (but new to me) Supercaliber.
    Not original, and needs some work (which I have planned). Not sure of the year. bought it as a '92, but think it may be a '90. Can anybody confirm?

    Here are my rides.

    <a href="https://picasaweb.google.com/capnkurtor/GaryFishers2008/photo?authkey=ww9kwzz-ZAk#5232304977364884354"><img src="https://lh3.ggpht.com/capnkurtor/SJzhp6xXm4I/AAAAAAAAAEk/9A1cJv9JB0Y/s800/IMG_0531.JPG" /></a>
    The HiFi is completely stock, other than running it tubeless and the grips. It weighs in right at 24lbs even with the pedals.
    <a href="https://picasaweb.google.com/capnkurtor/GaryFishers2008/photo?authkey=ww9kwzz-ZAk#5232304497451808770"><img src="https://lh3.ggpht.com/capnkurtor/SJzhN-9LOAI/AAAAAAAAAEY/fdvv3W2hGjE/s800/IMG_0526.JPG" /></a>
    The Sugar is a warranty frame rebuild of my 2001 Sugar 2. I figured since I was getting a new frame that I might as well upgrade other components on the bike at the same time. They painted it silver for me since I had already been using the Sid fork on the old Sugar and thought it would be better if it matched. It weighs in at 23.5lbs right now, but I'm going to try and drop that to 22ish with some other mods.

    Bob!! Your bike is a such a pig. Just wondering if your sealant sealed up that XDX?

    At least it's not a Puple Pig , haven't tried to seal it yet. Still have a tube in it, but I took it out to Nine Mile tonight and it seemed to hook really good plus it's crazy fast!! Thanks.

    Bdundee,
    That looks like a pretty good build, nice components also.

    I think my 03 Big Sur comes in around 26# but that's with Crank Brother's Mallet C's, Sun Rhyno Lite Wheels, Avid BB7 disc brakes, WTB 26x2.4 Mutano Raptors on standard tubes with tire liners, .5# Black Spire Big Ring bash guard, WTB Speed V saddle, Performance oversized bar ends, JandD seatbag with spare tube, wireless computer and two bottle cages. Large frame and all the rest of the parts are stock.

    Everything I change seems to adds weight.

    On the other hand, my bud's 02 HKEK is a pig by comparison.
    He has puncture resistant Specialized DH tubes with sealant installed in WTB 26x2.4 MotoRaptors. A NitroPro suspension seatpost supports a massive Serfas gel saddle. and the stock pedals have been replaced with Shimano M545 clipless with aluminum cages.
    His is also a large but with Gold instead of Platinum frame and he still has the rim brakes.

    for $4,300 that carbon fiber superfly should come with 2 free T-F's from Pamela Anderson. Seems pretty overpriced, especially now that they're made in China. Gary Fisher must be making HOO-KOO-E-KOO MONEY.


    That Joshua looks pretty sweet, looks like some nice 3-spoke spin wheels too.

    I'm not sure where the fly is made, but I do know it is kinda rude to knock someones ride whether it's high end or low end. I think the fly is fly

    All I know now is that its easy to rack the dough up in a bike really quick! Whether its built or bought, you'll always have something to show for it!




    I just peeled back just over 1800 smackers on the hifi, so of course i have to whore it out to mtbr for winks and stinks!

    Stans ZTR 355 / 2.0/1.7 3x / AC hub'd

    KMC X9 Chain (temp)
    Hayes Rotors
    Easton SL CNT Bars
    Ritchey WCS 4AX Stem
    Fire XC rubbas
    bonty grip tape

    ..like a fat kid in fat camp, except there's no where to hide the cupcakes now biotch! Seriously though, the weight drop is insane. I'll have to get a number out of it soon.





    I ride faster than I should.

    P.S. I can't wait till the day I can ride the Kettles

    I like that!

    any report about how the talas made the bike handle before and after?

    G2 vs non-G2

    I built up the bike from the frame up so never really tried it with a real G2 fork. I bought the frame from someone that got it as a warranty replacement.

    My friend did end up getting an 08 HiFi pro with the fox f120 G2 fork and when I tried his bike, I could notice a slight improvement on slow speed handling but the difference felt very subtle to me. I tried to compare the two bikes by doing a track stand on both bikes and it did feel a bit easier on his bike. But once again, the difference was pretty subtle, you really have to pay attention to notice it.

    All in all, I'm very happy with my TALAS and my Hi-Fi.

    I'll throw my hat into the ring with my hifi. I already added this pic to the hifi owners thread, so I figure I'll share with the rest of the class too.

    This is the best shot I have of my 02 Marlin right now. It's blown up and fuzzy but I haven't seen any other 02 Marlins so I felt a responsibility .

    Here's the short upgrade list: Pictured as stock

    TIME XS pedals
    Ergon GC2 Grips - Oh so comfy going downhill

    Wish list:

    Lighter everything if/when it breaks
    Disc brakes - BB7s
    Stem
    Headset
    Bars
    Seatpost
    SEAT
    Wheelset
    Maybe better components along the way

    Took a few pics of my 91 Aquila. Not a bad ride for what little money I have in it. Light years better than the Walmart pos I was riding for a while. Still needs some upgrading since a few things had to come off my the walmart bike to meet my budget. I took it through the Vortex trail at Santos a few times so it's still pretty sturdy for a somewhat vintage bike. A new seat and front derailleur are next on the list.
    Components so far are XT brifters, Deore 9 speed cassette, LX rear derailluer and some cheap 110mm quill stem to replace the 140mm stock stem.

    What a bike! Standard except for carbon riser and tubeless, soon to add XTR cranks (almost bought Raceface Deus to keep it non shimano).
