Thanks guys, subtle and logical was the aim of the build. I have always liked the look that Fisher got with this model - others were a bit too blingy or boring for my tastes but for me they got this right. I remember weeks or months before i purchased this bike back in 1996 i would look at a catalogue and magazines every night and this model just stuck out. I liked the contrast of the yellow Quadra 21R and the white aluminium frame.
I do have the 1996 catalogue so was going for a catalogue build and then i thought why not upgrade the parts to what the top Fisher model had back in 1996. The top aluminium model was called the Supercaliber and had all XT so i thought i would go will full XT and have spent that last three months or so tracking it all down in as close to NOS condition as possible. I just coudnt get the wheelset to complete it so stuck with the LX ones - which i am happy with.
The Montare had Sugino crankset orginally and i wanted to stick with Sugino as i personally prefer the look over the XT so went with an XT equivalent spec hence the Mighty 900.
As for subtle i wanted it to look as though on first glance it was just like the catalogue picture but when you took a closer look you could see that those yellow shocks were not Q21R but Judy SL, and those components where not STX/LX but XT etc
