Gary Fisher Simple City 8

2008



Description 

Simple City began the way most Fisher bikes begin: Gary went for a ride. He pedaled a Dutch shopping bike, complete with basket, rack, chainguard, and kickstand, through the streets of Amsterdam. He loved the bike so much he brought it home — and in typical Gary fashion, he made it better. He stayed true to the bike's honest commuter roots, but made it faster, lighter, more beautiful. In other words, he made it a Fisher.

Riding with the dog trailer seems to reduce hostility even though I take up more lane space!
