So, I was all ready to get on my bike, ride the snot out of it, and get back to you on how awesome I rode the snot out of my bike. Then, the laundry fairy came, and I had to fold a shit-ton of laundry (7% of it mine), which put me at opening time for the shop.
While I was turning on the lights and getting everything ready for business, the big brown clown came, unexpectedly early. I got a letter. A UPS letter?
The nuts and bolts of it are, that Fisher is going the way of Lemond and Klein, with all sorts of language that corporate d-bags came up with. The short story: small time Fisher dealers are screwed. See, the Fisher brand will now be a “collection” within the Trek brand. But if you are not a Trek dealer, then you will not be able to get the “Gary Fisher Edition Treks” to sell. So sorry.
