  • How would you fit 29er to rear fisher as its a 26 frame, or is clearance ok? but then wouldn't Geo be all over the shop?

    • I wouldn't, a 69er has a 26" rear and a 29" front. The fisher has very 90's xc geo (71.5 degree head angle) so raising the front a little will just make it feel more modern.

      Nice triple butted steel frame

          Trek even had one in production for a while

          I might even singlespeed it to confuse you further

            My Moab was singlespeed, 16t back, with 32 up front, with a Surley tensioner and Salsa ring, nice and simple, tried it for at least 10 rides, then thought what's the point in this, I want to go faster, or easier up a hill. It went in the bin

            • You binned the SS kit? Shame.....I might have been interested lol

              In all honesty my experiment with SS is done, I loved how simple it was but didn't like always being in the wrong gear

              • SS for me saved in weight, changing gears intra-ride, and setting up indexing.


                The saving in weight, was offset by the pure inefficiency for 90% of the ride and being in the wrong gear, trashing all kinds of kneecap cartilage due to excess torque action.

                Saving in faff? Well yes initially it saved the hour or so of fettle gear tune on stand, but i'm quite fond of fettling gears

                Save of changing gears intra-ride, i quite like changing gears!

                          • She'd be covered in that proper rubbish dirty snow, like when someone speeds past in the slush and sprays a white car. TOTAL RUINATION.

                              So that's tomorrow morning sorted after I drop the kids off ................

                              Haribo didn't last long enough to get snapped

                              They also included a free sample of THESE which I may give a test run of over the weekend

                              I also discovered I had some Amazon vouchers from work I didn't know I had, so treated myself to some new shoes, top and shorts - cost me nowt !

                                I can't wait to hear how your first cassette change goes.
                                When I changed cassette and chain together I was amazed how awesome my bike felt afterwards. I have a feeling you are going to get that nice new bike feeling and come back with a grin from ear to ear
