Mountain biking can be fun with a reliable machine like the Gary Fisher X-Caliber 29er. This mountain bike takes pride in its first-class components, an intelligently put up frame, proper geometry and a simple blue and white color scheme.

Designed with an aluminum frame, the butted and hydroformed tubing adds to the stiffness and weight efficiency of the bike. 100mm of travel is provided by the RockShox Reba range fork. Particularly for this model, an exquisite touch was added by modifying the custom geometry.

On the front and rear seat, Avid provides hydraulically operated mechanisms integrated on the large perforated disc brakes. Moreover, the Bontrager tires and rims along with the front fork offer exposed suspension that adds to the excellent performance of the 2011 Gary Fisher X-Caliber 29er mountain bike….
