Any value in these vintage gusset frame Fishers ? Can't find any info online ?
Neat that it is a single speed.
For $ 25 and an hour drive I'm thinking of skipping my cable bill until next month and go pick this thing up ? I would like to know about what year it is ?
Sorry I can't help on the year , but that is a bargain!
It's in one of those one stop light towns in the middle of nowhere .
Actually it's in the middle of the Ocala National forest .
My first thought is that those don't look like Gary Fisher dropouts. Could it be a modified frame?
All the reviews on this Trek Gritty (Gary Fisher) were written about 9 years ago.
"One of the most interesting models is the bargain basement Gritty, which carries a price tag of just US$399.99 (approx £250). Though built around 700c wheels, the steel frame is more akin to a BMX bike with heavily gusseted head tube and seat cluster areas plus rear-facing horizontal dropouts. A BMX-style stem and brake levers are used too, and there’s even a three-piece steel crank."
Nice job @Wildcat !
Single speeds are weird: every couple of years, a big manufacturer will build one. People will buy them because of the hype and then realize that it's a lot of work. The used market will be filled up, new models won't sell, and the model gets discontinued. And the cycle repeats.
Thank You Wildcat .
