This build was a 'from the ground, up' restoration of a former mountain bike I had raced and ridden from 1990 - '95. The iconic Fisher CR-7 was a ground breaker in combining two dissimilar metals using the vertically compliant steel for the rear triangle and the front fork, with a laterally stiff aluminum main triangle. The rear is bolted onto the main frame. This bike was voted one of the top ten innovative mountain bikes of the first generation, 1985 - '95.
