Gary Fisher Big Sur

Purchased this bike at a bike shop closure auction as a kid. This is the bike that really got me into cycling and helped me master the wheelie. It's a bit too small for me now but has too much sentimental value to sell, so I've converted it to SS, reserving it for snowy commuting.

Current Stage Info:

As much sentimental value that this has with me, I have finally accepted that it's just way to darn small for me. It was time for it to go. I really hope I come across another down the road in my size.

Haha, naw.. I just way outgrew this bike. At 190cm (I guess to some, that may be a considered gigantic :P), a medium frame no longer fits me like it did when I purchased it.

Ahaha, yeah! I needed the longest post I could find to get this bike to fit again. Glad you dig it! It definitely aids to the joy of winter commuting.
