Hey!
Got this (presumably) '95-'97 Gary Fisher Montare for free. Not Sure what I should so with it yet. I'm thinking of turning it into my daily driver/touring-capable bike as I only have very impractical bikes right now. What do you know about this model/frame and general build quality? Is it worth preserving? Haven't had a Gary Fisher so far and when it comes to vintage bikes, I generally try to avoid aluminum frames even though I do not ride them hard. Maybe that's just irrational prejudice. What do you think?
Here's a pic of the bike

And here are some detailed pictures of the exact same frame:

Thanks!

Looks like an ideal bike for the job: add Schwalbe Marathons, mudguards, rack and bar-ends and you have a robust tourer or commuter.
