Let's here from all the Fisher owners...

I've got two of them...A 2000 Sugar3 and a 1999 HooKooEKoo....

Both bikes are going strong and I'm riding them 5-6 times a week no major incidents...

Calling all Fishers

I have a pair of gary fishers. My first Mtn Bike was a 2000 Big Sur, and I got a 2003 Sugar 2+ with Disks in December 2002. I love them both!! Genesis Geometry fits me very well, and both bikes have handled my lack of skill and finessewithout any trouble. I recently painted my old Big Sur black, and upgraded to avid disks, and a Marzocchi MX comp with ETA. I'll post some pics when I get a chance. Later, Sasquatch

Here's my 2k Sugar 4...

The first upgrade phase:



Then, a year later:



Then, a couple years after that:







Yup, still going strong. No major accidents here either. But then again, I don't ride as often as I'd like...

Fisher? I like 'em

Got an '01 Sugar 1 (now called the "Team") and two '00 X-Calibers. The Sugar is set up as a 7spd (34x11-32) with 195mm cranks. Let's see... does this new board support HTML?

Thanks for allowing me to use your post as a test. So multiple images that are attached can appear as photos in a round about way--edit the post after attaching.

Aaah, Double Barrels

Those look really good on your Sugar...but then again, they look good on every bike. Too bad they went out of business.

While on the subject of showing our bikes

Just testing out the picture upload. Here is a picture of my bike. I have not done much customizing yet but I plan to over the winter months.

the fork came off my other bike so i chucked it on as anything would be better than the RS judy that was on there. It's set up with loads of sag so it's not too chopper like plus you've got the ETA if you are climbing but i use this bike mostly for street, trialsy type stuff so it's sweet for that.

I had similar troubles with my Paragon. It also came with a judy which I realized I had to ditch after about two weeks of riding it. So I put a Black on it (I now have an 80 mm fork), but the 100 mm just messed up the steering too much and I didn't even need that much travel. I can't imagine using 125! But if it works for you, thats what counts. If I can bum a camera off of a friend, I'll post mine up here sometime.

I have 2 GF's

I have a 2000 Sugar 3 with lots of upgrades and is now my racing bike. I also have an old '92 Paragon...all rigid. I turned that into a somewhat road bike. No pics though. I'll take some soon and post them 'cuz the old Paragon is a sweet light-bright orange. So bright, I really don't need lights at night.

And my wife has an '01 Sugar 4.
