It's my summer joke. I have bought 2 RS1 and I decided to join them.
RS1 ?
RS1 for Rock Shox 1, for me, one of the more mythic fork, not the best but so cool !
RS1 for Gary Fisher RS1, the first bike which seems to be a modern bike
:lol:

So, picture of the joke :

:lol: :lol: :lol:

This bike, like modern bike is full suspension and disc brake.
But, on contrary with modern bikes, it's still look like a bicycle :D

The ride is fine, very confortable. The elastomers are quite dead (too soft) but the bike is still stiff and the suspension still work with precision.

Wow, love this.
An early Manitou disc fork would really finish it.

I try to do a replica of the "Gary Fisher's prototyp : so, RS1 for the fork, and a full campy groupo.
If I would want to put a disc brake fork, I would need a Mert Lawill :D

Or a Suspenders :). Great bike, a real speciality & apiece of history.

This bike is just awesome mate, I've been looking at the one on ebay (far too small) and did a search and found yours!

The cranks are Sugino right? Do you know the model? I've been looking for those ones for a long time!
