Do you have a link to this news? Both of my Fishers broke last year.

Mooch said...

The post title is the link buc!

I thought you worked with computers or something like that...

bucsexy said...

What's a link?

Mooch said...

a delicious pork sausage product.

My understanding is that Trek was to offer "Gary Fisher Line" of bikes; now distributed thru trek dealerships; rather than an exclusive line. IE: Sold thru In-Gear; etc.; rather than exclusively thru Holmes. Gary Fisher even made news comments about this recent change in marketing his bikes. But perhaps the story has changed over the last few weeks!

bucsexy said...

Mmmm...pork sausage links.

This is like Datsun...to Datsun by Nissan...and now it's just Nissan. The Fisher name will fade away. Whatever. Just so I can get a new frame when mine breaks.

Nevada said...

What no bacon comments?

clownbike said...

Buckcheese as much as you've been riding lately those frames will last a long time.

bucsexy said...

Tru dat, Clown! For some reason I just can't get into it this year. I've been thinking about selling my bikes.

Mooch said...

Now that the Fisher brand is dead you can label them as'vintage' and sell them for a HUGE profit.

prophet said...

Buc! Sell your bikes???!!! say it aint so! Just back it down a notch and come ride with the Tuesday crowd. All the bacon and more BS!

Nevada said...

Bucsexy - I am with prohpet. Say it aint so! The more sarcasm on the trial the better.

prophet said...

and you don't even have to be able to spell........apparently

Nevada said...

In my despair over the news that bucsexy is considering retirement I lost my ability to spel. See!

I have a greg lemond road bike who trek dropped in 2008.

I was told my warrent issues are covered for life by trek now.

Hope with the GF warrenties trek will replace them for owners. I'm pretty sure they will. But if i owned one i asked my LBS about it.

Wonder if trek drop Gary klein now as well.

I'm not sure what to do. Biking hasn't been fun in a while. I can't even get excited about doing the Michaux races. I find myself staying up late at night eating chocolate covered bacon.

camps said...

Bucchucky,
before you give up on biking, go ride Raystown. If that doesn't return the stoke, then you truly are over it.

bucsexy said...

Joel and I talked about going to Raystown. I'd like to give it a try. I'm not someone who gives up easily.

dah said...

I'm up for a Raystown 'Trek'

brett said...

Mixing up riding locations definitely helps keep the fire burning.

I tried mixing things up yesterday. I wanted to ride with someone with limited bike skills so I emailed Mooch.

Mooch said...

Yeah, thanks for the email buc - but I didn't feel like riding that slow.

bucsexy said...

Haha. I will try to get faster so I can keep up. ROTFLMAO!

bucsexy said...

I'll try to keep riding. I don't want to give up. Does anybody want to ride tomorrow? Post here or send me an email. I replied to an old riding buddy but haven't heard back.

Nevada said...

Bucsexy - I emailed you. If we can work something out please do not bring the guy with the limited skills.

bucsexy said...

Johnny Utah and I are riding somewhere tomorrow after 3:30. I'll post the info when we decide.

Mooch said...

Just remember which one is the front brake Utah. And keep your weight back... :)

bucsexy said...

Mooch - You need to keep your weight forward to maximize braking on desents.

Utah can't ride. He chipped a nail. If anybody wants to ride (road or mtn) please post something here.

Who gives up riding a bike? Seriously? Go traveling for new trails!

drw said...

Alright.
So can I just make it official that I agree with Bucky.
Get rid of the stupid anonymous posts.
They are stupid.
Seriously.
If cheezy wants to take a little time off the bike he's allowed to -- it's probably healthy. As if an anonymous with a "shake it, shake it" posting should really have any say in the matter.
Seriously stupid.

If you dont feel like riding then dont ride. The urge will come back. Just don't get too fat and out of shape. It's tougher to drop pounds and regain fitness as you age.

Nevada said...

Mooch - if I was as skilled as bucsexy at the acronyms I would put something about laughing, but seeing as how I had to look up what his acronym meant I will not be doing that.

I need non-chipped nails to be able to ride. Hopefully next time.

Anonymous said...

DRW, I see you lack humor in a thread that means has no meaning. No one is holding a gun to the Buc's head and telling him to ride if he doesn't want to.

Let's not turn this into another "who should post" argument because that would be the 3rd time the thread goes off topic.

Anonymous said...

Damnit... I made a typo... DRW will now have the upper hand in why I fail. Damn this INTERNET!

bucsexy said...

Take it easy on drw. He's a little on edge because his Cosmo is late. Somebody get him another Zima!

drw said...

See?
Once again: it just adds so much substance to the conversation.
Yeah, buc, it's late again.
I've tried home-brewed zima. Just not the same.

Mooch said...

If you say "Zima" with a lisp while you are drinking it supposedly it tastes better. Supposedly. I wouldn't know. I swear. Yeah. Never touch the stuff. But it is fun to say. "Zima".

How's that for off topic, bitches.
