Out of the Box and into the Snow: Gary Fisher Rumblefish

Hey, you might have heard,  we are buried in snow. Just in time for my new test bike to arrive. I might have been able to get in just slightly snowy ride in before this last big storm, but a few little things kept me off the new technical trail bike from Fisher, the Rumblefish. Little things my friendly neighborhood Fisher dealer would have handled for me, had I bought this locally. Instead I dusted off my mechanic’s skills with front and rear brake bleeds and installation of a new rear shock that didn’t leak oil from the control knob cluster.

So you want some ride impressions? Ummm, it sure is slippery on the way to the coffee shop.

If you want some real ride impressions, check out my blog from the Fisher press camp in Park City , UT in the fall. I know it won’t be snowy forever here, and pictures like this keep me going:

What else to say? How about a list of noteworthy attributes? E2 tapered head tube and fork, Fox 32 F29 1200 fork with 15mm thru-axle, and FIT damper, RP23 DRCV rear shock with ProPedal and Boost Valve, ABP rear end, BB92 bottom bracket shell, hydroformed tubes, 36t cassette cog, etc. More info at the Fisher website.

I won’t be waiting for the snow to melt, stay tuned for a snow ride report.
