Their fisrt full sus was called RS 1 .

Gary Fisher is typical of a great builder fallen into darkness following its buyout by a bigger brand .
Like Klein and so many others . :(

I test rode 1 of those frames for MBi in 97. mega stiff from memory :)

klein would have gone under in 95 if trek hadnt bought them out. As it is klein arent imported into the UK for 06 due to lack of sales.. so some might say it was gonna happen sooner or later?

Same in france , no Klein for quite a while now .

Klein are still doing good frames, but Gary Fisher seem to have lost a lot , or is it just me ?
