What model is this?

Cant find any pics of this bike. It's a Fisher (Gary?) Ballistic front and rear suspension and Artek brakes. Note the motorcycle type front suspension mount

You haven't provided much to go on here, so I doubt anyone can be of much help.

Can you post photos?

We could still use some more information. What components are on it? Is it steel or aluminums?

I don't think it a Fisher.

Neither classic nor vintage. Honestly looks like a department store model to me. Providing names of the major components will help. Shifters, brakes, derailers, etc.

That type of fork is called a dual crown fork. that one is very cheap, however, with those spindly stanchions and flimsy looking lower triple clamp.

Ballistic actually made OK forks for a little while but then seemed to concentrate on supplying lowend OEMs before disappearing.

Definitely not a Gary Fisher frame.

Probably trying to mimic a mid-to-late-90s Foes monocoque design.
