I recently finished a new project bike. The frame is from an ’02 Fisher Mamba, but I rebuilt it with new parts since all the old stuff was pretty much trashed. The frame is an over-built steel model with zero rust, which is pretty surprising, considering the condition I got it in. It’s a couple sizes too large for me, personally, so I’ll keep it around to loan out to buddies who want to ride but don’t have a bike.
The fork is an aluminum version of the Carbon Cycles eXotic carbon fiber fork I bought for my own bike last year. It cost half a much, and is only a couple ounces heavier than the carbon version. I won’t be able to do a review on it since I won’t be the one riding it, but I’ll report back on how well it holds up in the long run, or if any problems crop up.
I posted all the photos of the build in my photos section: http://gearinches.com/…/2002-gary-fisher-mamba
