Been sorting out my bikes today, thought I'd posted this up

Here's a 2007 NOS frame Gary Fisher Supercaliber which I built up not so long ago. Wanted a light XC specific full susser and this appeared on my doorstep :)

Apart from the Hope Brakes everything else is brand new

There is a bit of flexiness in the rear BUT it all depends what you want this bike do. For full-on XC it's perfect, put some tight turning single track and rocks in to the mix then it's not really the best choice. Got other bikes for that :wink:

thats a shame really as if they could've strengthened the rear end, im sure it've sold a lot better....thats why i prefer oranges design in the box section patriot etc.

looks nice though and i bet its super fast on the long draining rides
