Gary Fisher MTN Bike ID...

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...

Anyone know?

EDIT - I've looked on the site with the models they had there and nothing matched up...

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.

Did the skull and cross bones look like this?

If yes then this 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.

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.
