Well...the time had finally come and I just bought my bike. Had to spend about 7.5 hours driving to get it and get home. I bought a real nice Gary Fisher King Fisher with some real nice upgrades on it. Now its time to eat and get situated and go do a lil riding and try to tune it to my size and weight!

That's a lot of bike. What sort of upgrades were made to it?
From what I can tell that does not come equipped on this bike :

Rock Shox Totem Forks
Truvativ chain guide
Shimano 424 pedals (which are getting dropped for something different)
Titec El-Norte bars with lock on grips

Then was told these also, but so far they all seem to be stock with this model:

Fox DHX 4.0 coil rear shock
Sram X-9 rear der. X-7 shifter
Bontrager Big Earl wheelset, stem, tires, and Crankset
Hayes HFX Mag hydraulic disc brakes 8" front 6" rear
Cane Creek double X headset

And honestly, I dont know if there is anymore from looking at it, since I am still new with this.

Very nice what a beauty with sweet upgrades. :rockon:

Love the obstacle course, over the head clearing the sock up the sandal with a ball roller across another sandal. :drumroll: :D
Thank you dogonfr, still need to get it tuned and tweeked to my likings and size though. I think I am expierencing the famous pedal bob that everyone is talking about on here. So I have been playing around with some of the suspension adjustments. But I think I may need to take it to the LBS and have it tuned for me.

Havent tried anything crazy with it yetl. Just some asphalt paths and minor rock paths with some decent steep uphills. But once I have it adjusted to me, then will come the jumps and cool stuff!:thumbsup:

There is some grease on the seat post I need to clean off, had to adjust the seat from where it was.
Is the "Anti-Rollback" flipflop optional or standard?

:D

Hey, don't knock the silver...I prefer it to the blue myself!

It looks so frickin' industrial!

I'm developing a love for Gary Fisher's PhD and with Knolly frames.

Knolly



PhD


This looks like the offspring of both!

Cool Beans!

I am going to start to market the red with white design flip flop as anti-roll back mechanisms that can be worn as well for leisure riding around the park! LOL! Get yours for only 3 installments of 19.99. And if you call in the next hour we will give you a weatherbeaten baseball for free!

I LOVE that knolly frame!

Do you accept PayPal? LOL!

KNOLLY! Yeah, I know! I had to get some Kleenex to wipe down my screen the first time I saw a Knolly frame.

BMW's are hot too (Brooklyn Machine Works)...
