Is this bike for show or to be ridden? Its pretty sweet either way. Seems like a shame to buy NOS and ride it. Also seems like a shame to build such a nice bike and let it sit...

It's basicly a showbike but will be ridden... a bit. no real mtb riding but it's not a pure garage queen.

Great frame and buildup.

I really like the Gary Fisher label version of these OCLV frames as well, the pro and supercalibers in green and black with gold decals...very understated.

Thanks guys,

The blue and white one was bought by me, but I didn't have the time and money to do something with it and my brother needed a frame so I uses it now.

I do have to agree that the GF OCLV series (calibers) are very nice indeed.

Both 9900 look lovely in real life. The 9900 of Sniperworks is really that nice made but its to much to ride it. The 9900 white/blue is a nice rider and weighs nothing... (ok ok some jealeousness spotted on here......)

Talking about the GFishers......still get wet pants when I see the Golden series on which Pezzo did the Olympics bitd.....
