Gary Fisher Bodega 2011 Hybrid Bike

The Gary Fisher Bodega comes from a respected brand that produces bikes for riders with different budgets. This particular model is aimed at those who do not want to remortgage their property to pay for a bike but still want to enjoy hybrid capabilities and speedy performance for any situation across multiple surfaces. It definitely lives up to its promise and as a versatile, multipurpose cycle it is difficult to beat in this price bracket. The fact that it has an SR Suntour NFX front fork with suspension means that it can surpass its rivals and give riders a sportier experience than other hybrid options.

Gary Fisher Bodega Overview

The Gary Fisher Bodega shares several features which appear on much more expensive bikes in this range, including the alloy frame and the aforementioned front fork with 63mm of travel and adjustable pre-load. The seven speed gear set up may offer a little less flexibility than the costlier models and the bike lacks disc brakes but you cannot ask for more at this price point. Performance is assured given the presence of components from Bontrager and Tektro. The prevalence of aluminium makes the bike a lightweight option that can make weaving through traffic or heading out across dirt tracks enjoyable and easy. Ultimately it will be the price that seals the success of the Bodega in the crowded hybrid market, as it packs in standout features for a cost that is affordable.

The Gary Fisher Bodega has a relatively plain black and grey style on its frame and components. Unobtrusive branding from the various contributing manufacturers means that it is not a particularly showy bike. As a hybrid model, it is purposefully aiming to be a reliable, unfussy travel companion rather than a hardcore mountain bike with an extreme design or a fashionable runaround with limited performance. What you can appreciate from looking at the Bodega is its overall quality which is several steps beyond what is offered by the basic, generic bikes.
