I was at my local bike store this afternoon looking a new set up to replace my old 01' 4300. I was looking at a certain Gary Fisher bike when I got distracted by a friend. I meant to go back and look at the bike before i left to catch the model so I would be able to do more research online about it, but i forgot.
The bike was XC Hardtail, White with red accents of "pixelated" Skull n' Crossbones on the front. It looked to be pretty solid frame. I pretty sure it was a Gary Fisher bike, but I have no clue on what model...
EDIT - I've looked on the site with the models they had there and nothing matched up...
I never pictured Gary as a "skull and crossbones" sorta hippie.

Not a Fisher or an XC bike, but the only thing i could think of that's white and had skulls on it. This look familiar at all? It's an '07 Specialized P2 Cromo.
Its a gary fisher opie i looked at the same bike 2 days ago http://trekdg.com/nobots/zoom/item_zoom.cfm?LibId=49130 http://trekdg.com/itemdetails.cfm?LibId=49130
Did the skull and cross bones look like this (http://files.colonies.com/userdata/3282345/mugshot/434458/170x170_5_0_1.jpg)?
If yes then this (http://www.covebike.com/index.html) is probably the brand of the bike as they have that skull and cross bones logo on the front of the bike.

I'm 100% sure it was a Gary Fisher. The skull and crossbones art is called "rasterbation". The frame of the Opie actually looks like the correct bike. I'm going to the shop in a few, so I'll take a picture for you guys see.
Duce nailed it. Its the Opie. I thought your link you posted was broken, but I didn't realize it was two different ones. The frame is a white and red instead. I'll still get a picture for all to see.
^^ Too bad. Would've been nice if it was a Cove. Deep Cove Bike Shop rocks.
The Mullet has white paint, the Opie has black paint.

I almost bought the opie but would have been a bit much for what i do on a bike , the guy at my shop told me it was more built for jumping and stuff. It had some fat tires on it thats for sure.
