    Gary Fisher Prometheus

    I have a Gary Fisher Prometheus I'm thinking about selling and am looking for information on their remaining popularity and a price level I could expect, or ask for.

    I have rarely ridden it over the past 4 years and last upgrades were early 2000's with Shocks and Brakes. All other components the same as when I bought it from Pullins Cyclery in Chico. It is a tall frame at 21 inches to the seat post. Overall, a regularly used bike in the 1990's and limited use there after. No damage or excessive wear. # 20017 noted on bottom bracket.

    Anyone know what market levels are for these old titanium bikes?

    Thanks

    History Class

    supposedly this bike is why Gary came up with Evolution. He wanted to make a ti fork to go with this frame but felt a 1" steerer was too flimsy.

    I don't know much of the history, but I saw on "The Gary Fisher Story" website that it got some notoriety in 1988.

    "Bicycle Guide Magazine names the titanium Fisher Prometheus the "Best of 88". "

    That is interesting. I notice that the above bike has a threadless A-TAC stem, something I've never seen before, an Evolution only option?
    5 is the old new black; 6 is the new new black...

    Threadless A-Tac was a regular option available in a variety of sizes starting in 1993
    Based on the fork, the stem in the photo is 1 1/8.

    Wow, I've really never, ever even seen a picture of one before, I was running a quill A-TAC on my bike in 1992/1993 - love those stems. Something new to hunt for!
    5 is the old new black; 6 is the new new black...

    Just scanned the May 1988 Bicycle Guide article about the Fisher proto Ti for the www.mombat.org site.

    Beautiful bike can't belive you are selling.....

    That is a 1 1/4 threadless stem. I was with him when he bought it. I sold one on email awhile back. I don't think I got anything for it.
