We ride Gunnar!
Our store has been a long time fan of Gunnar Cycles. We really enjoy the process of helping select a Gunnar to fit the needs of our customers. We can assemble custom bikes using Gunnar frames and components of your choosing. Gunnar Cycles produces many types of frames while offering a wide variety of sizes and styles. We have built many custom Gunnar bikes including cyclocross, road, sport and travel. Travel "Roadies" are our favorite Gunnar bike. Gunnar travel bike frames are built using a special stainless steel coupling system which allows the frame to be separated into two parts. The entire bike can then be packed in a standard hard-sided case for airline travel and checked as regular luggage with no extra bike fee. These travel bikes ride just like their standard versions and with no loss of performance. Ask us how Gunnar travel bikes have changed where and how we ride!
Gunnar Cycles relies on heat treated air-hardening steels for every Gunnar – mainly True Temper OX Platinum. “Air-hardening” refers to how after TIG welding the steel becomes super-heat treated and avoids brittleness in the weld zone. The diameter and wall thickness of each tube is selected to provide the right balance of strength, light weight, durability and performance.
It’s not just a great tubeset that makes a Gunnar. Every Gunnar is hand-built at Waterford Precision Cycles in Waterford, Wisconsin. Precision fixturing, aligning tools and fabrication protocols ensure your Gunnar is straight and true.
Innovation – and Common Sense
For Gunnar Cycles, innovation means helping you develop new ways to enjoy cycling by continuing to add models and improvements that move forward the practice of cycling in its many forms. Gunnar provides common sense design – avoiding gimics and focusing on giving you exactly what you want.
There’s something about a hand-made steel bike. It has soul. It speaks to you. It begs to be ridden. Like a faithful canine pal, your Gunnar will be a friend for life, and it’ll always be ready to go out and play. Let us help you find that perfect companion!
