This is my first, real, bike. A '91 Gary Fisher Procaliber. It was the Team Fisher bike at the time, competing in the World Cup. Paola Pezzo also ran there, who then won the Olympics in '93. In my small way, I have done some Gran Fondo and many excursions. Over the years I have made several upgrades, and from the initial 11.5 kg (which was still very little for a bike of the time), it now weighs about 10.5 kg. The frame is built with Tange Prestige Ultralight double butted tubing to Gary Fisher specifications with Supersize design. The head tube is 1" 1/4 "Evolution" and the bottom bracket (88 mm) is press-fit (only two sealed bearings inserted by pressure, without caps and an axle that I have replaced with a titanium FRM). The wheels are very light, made with DT Swiss 240s hubs, Mavic XC717 rims and double butted DT spokes with ergal nipples. The fork is a Manitou Spyder R, which also used John Tomac in the World Cup. The crankset is a Middleburn RS3, with FSA chainrings. The groupset is a SRAM X-9 3x9 with Twist levers. Cane Creek S-5 headset that converts from 1 "1/4 to 1" 1/8. Ritchey WCS stem with WR Compositi carbon handlebar (one of the first in carbon). Salsa seat post with Italia Flite saddle (an icon).

In the box I also found these touch-up paints.

As soon as it was bought it was like that.
