88 Fisher CR-7
Trek 8300

Both with extremely low miles:::....fun !!
the PO of the CR-7 broke off the fork droppout when the bike was new, sat for 12 years unused. Added the Answer fork, still didn't ride it.













Mike Kloser::::: LOL !!
1988 Introduction of the Fisher CR-7, a collaboration combining Gary's renowned frame design and Richard Cunningham's expertise at joining aluminum and chrome-moly. Fisher racers, Mike Kloser and Sara Ballantyne win the Iditabike 200 Mile Snow Race in Alaska and the European World Off-road Championships. Bicycle Guide Magazine names the titanium Fisher Prometheus the "Best of 88". Gary is inducted at the inaugural Mountain Bike Hall of Fame in Crested Butte. Riding a tandem with Sara Ballantyne, Gary and Sara win the tandem category and place 13th overall in the 150mile Desert to the Sea race.

I know what everyone here thinks of Treks (and for the most part I agree) but I always thought those carbon tubed/aluminum stayed bikes were sharp.

Warning! Suntour cassette cogs are a known failure!

Great parts bikes the both, if you're planning on riding either make sure your life insurance is paid up. 8300 had similar lateral stiffness to a large bowl of jello and the tubes are glued into the lugs with hot French semen (possibly). the CR7's failings are detailed in another thread, but that looks like a nice fresh XT group on there.

i had a 8700. hmmm... talk about a dead feeling bike.:eek:
it just gave me an extra respect for steel.
other than that i liked the paint, the tange ultra light fork and the trek rims.

Hello mechagouki,

this sounds interesting, so I registered and searched the forums. Couldn't find the thread you are speaking of, though :-(

Do you remember where, or have a link for me? Thx, Andrs
