Just been given a Gary Fisher Frame? I think its a 2007. Is it any good?

Remember Gary Fisher being good from bitd, but I've no idea what the new(er) stuff is like or where the Wahoo fits in to the range.

It looks in ok condition - just needs a decent clean up I think. Is it worth building up? My other mtb ride atm is a '05 Claud Butler Stone river - would it be worth switching the running gear from the CB over to the Fisher? The CB is this one - http://www.falconcycles.co.uk/CORP/cb05/stoneriver.html The forks are completly and totally rubbish.

Found some great pics of a Wahoo on flickr - its in much better condition than the one I now have and it looks lovely: http://www.flickr.com/photos/one9us/set ... 419842604/

I take it from the lack of replies that its:

a) not a very exciting frame
b) a really stupid question
or
c) a really stupid question about a not very exciting frame

:D

I'm going for c :)

Might have a go a building it up any way. Got learn how to some when, might as well be on a karma frame. To bloody cold to work in the garage at the moment though - you loose the feeling in your fingers after 10 mins! :(

The Wahoo is at the budget end of the range, so I wouldn't spend too much money on parts if I was you, unless you plan to upgrade the frame at a later date. You've nothing to lose by swapping the parts from your CB - you will learn a lot, and you may find that you prefer the Gary Fisher when you ride it.

If you look in the Gallery & Archive section you will find some Gary Fisher catalogues in there, plus Bikepedia is always useful.

Regards

I looked at the photo then at my gentlemen's trouser area and definitely no excitement so you were correct with assumption a).

Still a good frame.

Enjoy it.
