November 29, 2011

Now that steel is getting the recognition it deserves as an ideal bicycle framebuilding material, we keep getting asked, “You build with chromoly, don’t you?” Indeed we do – but not on Gunnar bike frames.

Internal Hubs with Verticals?

October 30, 2011

This all started when Gunnar owner Steve Haynes sent in photos of his recent build – a Fastlane with a SRAM i-Drive hub. No, it doesn’t have horizontal dropouts. It doesn’t have the Paragons.
