One hard look at Gary Fisher's 2010 lineup and it's easy to see one common theme, utility. The line is littered with do all bikes that accomplish what you need and just a little bit more. The first bike is the flagship CX bike the Presido. This smooth riding steel steed arose from the ashes of the Lemond Poprad, a bike I've enjoyed for the past couple years.
Named after the site of the national CX event in San Francisco back in the late '90's, the Presidio stays close to it's roots as a high performance steel CX bike. New for 2010 are rear sliding dropouts allowing for an SS setup. The steel seatstays and chainstays have been highly manipulated to allow for the use of 29x1.8 tires and the all new Bontrager Race Lite CX fork will accomodate the same. The new fork also includes the Fisher's new hidden fender mounts, a big plus for those of us in climate challenged regions. Big wheels, big rubber, steel frame, smooth ride. If you follow the Bummer Life, you'll notice the SF lads like tearing into the singletrack on their various CX bikes. Adventure/Backcountry CX, coming to a local shop near you this (r)October.
