2008 Gary Fisher Ferrous -- a classic with a lot of cache. 2008 was the last year Gary Fisher had bikes built in the U.S. This bike is handbuilt using True Temper OX Platinum steel. Gary Fisher was one of the first builders to look to 29 inch wheels. Although it's a small frame (15.5"), I have never had toe overlap, which is pretty amazing and speaks to the well thought out geometry. It's an "eccentric" bottom bracket which makes for an easier convert to singlespeed though I have it currently geared. I love this bike but just don't reach for it enough. Condition is good: minor scratching and paint chips here and there, some rust wear around the lugs on the top tube and in a few other places. No damage to tubing. There are many upgrades -- carbon handlebars and cranks, Chris King headset, etc. Feel free to reach out with questions.
