2000. 2000 Gary Fisher Mt. Tam - BikePedia

I guess they replaced the Manitou with a Rock Shox SID?

I remember the Mt. Tam I knew was fillet brazed and looked very Ritchey.
Great light blue metallic too.

Bikes: a few classic Ritcheys, a Mt. Tam, and a "modern" Klein mtb ('99)

Not exactly sure but...

If I had to guess I would say '99 or 2000. I was shopping for a new bike back then and looked at lots of GF hard tails. This looks very familiar. Sorry but I can't w/ the serial number. I ended up buying a '00 Klein Attitude Comp.

Does your Tam have the Manitou SX-R fork? My Klein was spec'd with it, and I think the '-R' was new for that year vice the plain 'SX'.
