2006 Gary Fisher Utopia

A friend gifted me his 2006 Gary Fisher Utopia earlier this fall. I've been riding it a little and have decided to hang on to it for a while. Deore equipped

Ready to go.

As received.



with Avid BB5 disc brakes, it seems to ride nicely. With a new set of Continental Top Contact Winter tires it will become my rider for this winter (only on nice days of course!). It feels more trail oriented than other hybrids I have owned and ridden.

It is a good bike, and the price is certainly right.

Enjoy!

Nice. What do you think of the suspension seat post?

I'm not normally a fan of suspension posts, but this one came with the bike and I have been happy with the feel so far. Most of my bikes have Brooks leather saddles, some sprung (Flyer and B67) and a suspension post would be redundant. For the intended purpose for this bike, it is working well a provides a stable feel and a cushy ride.
