I like to go yard saleing. I must have been to over 300 the last 12 months. I've found and purchased a few bikes, but this Gary Fisher Tassahara is one of those special finds. It is incredibly clean having been ridden only a few miles. The chain shows almost no wear. I counted four scratch marks on the entire frame. The only real damage is a 1 inch cut in the original Gary Fisher seat, otherwise, this bike is nearly perfect.
Unfortunately, it has a rigid fork so taking it on a technical MTB trail is not an option. Besides, IMHO, this bike belongs in a museum.
What I don't know is, what year is this thing? It's an alloy frame, 21 speed with V brakes. The mix of components combined with the rigid front fork tells me this is an early to mid 90s bike. If anyone knows the year or has an educated guess please let me know. I know most posts like this are on the classic/vintage forum but I wanted to try the fifty plus forum first. Thanks for any input.
