30 July 2007 - 21:06Fisher’s New Hi-Fi
This model is the entry level Hi-Fi Plus. It has Avid Juicy 3 hydraulic brakes, SRAM X7 shifters and rear derailleur and the new Rock Shox Reba with G2 crown. G2 is Fisher’s new geometry, which is intended to increase slow speed handling without giving up high speed stability. One of the key factors is to extend the crown of the fork, the stock Reba is 38mm, the G2 is 51.
Those that have ridden it off road, say it lives up to the hype.
Following this model, is the Hi-Fi Deluxe, and the Pro. I hope to have some of these in stock in the coming weeks.
Fisher has some rather exciting hardtails on the way too, most notably the redesigned Paragon, and the OCLV Super Fly.
I can’t wait for that one….
I also took delivery of the elusive Fisher Ferrous. This bike has been very hard to get. Besides having really cool paint, it also has an eccentric BB, putting it in the ranks with the Niner SIR9. It too can be set up either geared or singlespeed. It comes with all of it’s gears, but with the supplied derailleur hanger chip, can be made into a clean looking singlespeed.
When Mandy popped into the shop today, it was in the stand, and she said “Ooh!!!! What does that one do?” Fortunately for me, she already has a sick hardtail, and she is a girl that likes her gears…
Whew! Dodged that one…
It’s an eye catcher for sure.
