    girlfriend ? no wait, Gary Fisher, which was an independent bike company that Trek bought a few years ago and folded into their lineup. I think the 'Gary Fisher' brand has been dropped, and now they are just models of trek mtn bikes.

    Nice conversion. I'd swap the seat, but that's me, the rest looks great. How do the brakes work out? Do you get enough power with those brakes and levers?

    Trek has actually owned Gary Fisher for quite a while (since 93 or 94). Recently, for the 2011 model year, Trek decided to eliminate Gary Fisher as a brand and introduced the Gary Fisher Collection by Trek. For the 2012 model year, they eliminated the Gary Fisher model names for the bike and followed suit with their other model nomenclatures. The bikes are now 8.x DS where "DS" stands for "dual sport." The bikes still have the "Gary Fisher Collection" label on them.

    I commute on a Specialized BG Toupe....which I also ride on my road bike. Comfortable seat (to me). It looks like you kept the standard brakes, what levers are you using?

    Badger when I converted to flat bar I used 105 calipers and shimano deore v brake levers as my bike shop recommended. I was ripped apart by the mechanic forum on here being told it's impossible BUT this combo worked perefectly for me. My brother though purchased shimano road specific flar bar levers which these days are very reasonably priced

    Good to know...I'll start researching again. I hate my brakes on the 7.9 FX, no power, and spongy, no matter how I adjust them. Thanks!

    I reverted the conversion back to road bike, and i swapped out the bartape. i will use the flat-bar conversion on another bike project of mine.

    Mate, I've got some new ideas for it (crazy ones) but I'm keeping it under my hat for the moment. Funds are the restrictions at the moment. The ideas may not come to fruition.

    I understand...yesterday the guys at my LBS asked me: "so, what are the plans for this one...?"
    I told them that I'm planning leave it as it is...they just laughed

    Thanks. It's sold as a dual sport hybrid. I love just about everything about the bike sans the paint job. I don't know why, but I feel like that shade of blue kind of cheapens the look. Maybe just me though...

    I've recently upgraded wheels to Shimano R500, from Cerchi Nisi T Due. Before;

    FmsL889l.jpg

    After;

    X7j8C8Cl.jpg

    WevusSEl.jpg

    They provided me a total weight loss off nearly 500 grams. Also they have obvious smoothness advantage over the old ones. Got the rims for 60$ as used. Compared to used wheels market, they can be count as free. I will never use any wheel, that is under the entry class (entry such as Shimano R500). They are useless, really.
