This old school Fisher has been in the bike room at work lately. With the Biopace chainrings, under chainstay mounted U-Brake and top mount shifters - mid '80s vintage. Biopace and chainstay brakes proved to be a dumb idea that faded quick. The old Fisher logos look cool though. They were forced to name their bikes "Gary Fisher" after pressure from the Fischer ski company later on. A little fun fact to bore your friends with at parties. The ladies will be impressed.
It's great to see these old bikes put to good use - especially commuting. The woman who rides it borrowed the bike from a friend to take part in the commuter challenge last month. The event is over and she's still riding it - very cool to see.
I get a kick out of seeing it in the bike room. It could be hanging in a garage somewhere collecting dust - instead of getting a new bike commuter to work and back. A noble use for an old mountain bike.
