Gary Fisher Sugar 3. Full sus rear air shock, Ferrari Red, light and Fast.

Had one as well, damn it as fast. That was, until I broke the rear triangle. Riding a Roscoe 3 now, thanks to a warranty replacement.

Just bumped into a like new 2007 Gary Fisher Big Sur hardtail that was bought by previous owner in Korea. Got it for $375 on eBay. Not "Old School," as that would be my 1988 Panasonic Mountain Cat 7500, but old school as compared to the techno, light year leaps in bikes to 2015...

Had a bum rear Hayes 9 brake, so replaced both with new Shimano XT M8000's and 180mm rotors. Otherwise, as pictured...

I recently bought a Gary Fisher King Fisher 1 frame here on Pink bike ( it is really kind of worn out but it will do for a while).

I just finished building it up last night. It's not pretty but it works.

Just finished slapping it together. there is still a lot of fine tuning to do and then I have to make it pretty.

This winter I will take it apart and repaint it and put everything where it belongs (cables etc.) Still need to tune the derailleur though.

I recently bought the same bike locally, so far I love the bike. Upgrading to dual crown forks soon though I hope. Currently running Manitou Travis triple single crowns.

I have 2 myself, both fairly retro since they are both about 20 years old. I have a 1998 Paragon hard tail and a 1996 Joshua Y full suspension, love riding them both depending on what terrain I'm hitting. I'm in the process of converting both to 1x drivetrains.

The pics are a little older and I've changed some of the components (You may notice the same fork on both bikes, I have a Manitou fork on the Paragon now) but you can get the idea. I'll have updated pics once the upgrades/conversions are complete.

Scored a used 2010 piranha for 100$ that I'm working to upgrade. Such a beautiful ride.

I just bought a G Fisher Tarpon can any body tell me how to decode the serial numbers stamped in the Frame under the Bottom Bracket ? And the bikes all original which means out dated and I'm only looking to do some small upgrades starting with changing out the cheapist RST front shock they make with something high Quality! Thanks for any information in advance

Here's my old 09 Gary Fisher HiFi pro receiving a little love,

I've just upgraded the rear shock from a old 2009 fox rp23 to a 2016 rockshox monarch debonair rt3

Shimano slx brakes

Shimano Slx 10spd shifter and rear mech with a sunrace 11-42 cassette and 10spd chain (needed a wolf tooth goatlink)

Burgtec Bars and stem

Next upgrade is going to be some forks which will probably be some 2016 rockshox revelations and a dropper post.

Gonna bump this thread! Hopefully there's still someone watching. Big Grin

I still ride a 2003 Sugar 3+, which I bought new. Ride it literally just about daily (5+ times a week). It came new with all XT compliments, and has remained so since I bought it new. It seems every time I think it's time to retire it, I remember just how much fun it is to ride. It's snappy, agile, and fast. Sure, it doesn't have the plushness and geometry of new stuff, but it is, after all, a true XC bike. With its 110 mm rear and 120 front travel, it climbs like a flippin' billy goat and lives for rocky/rooty stuff. And although it's a bit rough on fast rocky descents, it remains stable and upright. Tire width is limited, but manage a 2.35 up front, and a 2.1 in the rear (Kenda Nevegal's, which run wider than average). That's been a great combo for the Sugar. It's been through upgrades/updates/replacements over the years, most recently a new Mavic wheelset and fresh XT calipers and triggers with Ice-Tech rotors, as well as a new fork (Rockshox). It's transmission is still a 3x9, but have been eyeing a 1x11 update using e*thirteen's TRS cassette for more range than a SRAM 12 speed.

Any other Sugar riders out there?
