Gary Fisher Superfly 29er

The Gary Fisher Superfly 29er is a mountain bike, which has a set up that is designed for serious racing and borrows much from the professional grade Superfly Elite. However, the price is down to a level that is a little more affordable than the next step up in this range. It is still an expensive bike designed for enthusiasts and the market is packed with comparable bikes so it is necessary to take a closer look at the Superfly 29er in order to determine whether it is suitable for you.

Gary Fisher Superfly 29er Overview

The Gary Fisher Superfly 29er has an all carbon frame and a front fork from Fox that offers custom geometry and 100mm of travel. The Avid Elixir disc brakes on the front and rear offer excellent stopping power and the whole bike is intended to give the rider real confidence as a result of superior handling. Speed is important for this grade of bike and the Superfly 29er does not disappoint, with its lightweight build and intelligent set up allowing the rider to transfer as much power as possible from their piston-like legs to the rear wheel. With tyres, rims and a saddle from Bontrager along with Shimano and SRAM components, there is a lot of experience visible in the spec sheet of this bike, most of which works harmoniously together.

The frame of the Gary Fisher Superfly 29er is predominantly white with sections of black and smaller flashes of silver and blue. This is a firm that is consistent with its style across bikes of all kinds, so this will not look entirely different to those that are much cheaper or considerably more expensive. Depending on your point of view, this will be viewed as a positive feature for many people.
