FS: Gunnar Rockhound MTB Frame, XL

Discussion in 'rec.bicycles.marketplace' started by [email protected], Jan 5, 2005.

  1. Gunnar Rockhound MTB frame, size XL, Reynolds 853 steel, built and
    ridden twice, then parted out. This frame has a paint defect on the
    back of the seat tube, but otherwise is in like new condition. Photos
    are available, as well as touch up paint. Cover the defect with a
    sticker, repaint it, live with it as is -- your choice. Take it now
    for $325 shipped in the US before it goes to the powder coater and the
    price goes up. Retails for $750.

    Get Waterford quality and that great steel ride!

    Info from www.gunnarbikes.com:

    Geometry: Our Rockit TM geometry means just point and shoot! The
    Rockhound's long top tube, short rear end, and lower bottom bracket
    height place the rider in an ideal cross country position, for
    climbing, nimble technical work and descents. Front end geometry is
    optimized for 80mm travel front forks. Rear disc brake option.

    Tubing: Waterford exclusive butted tube sets, featuring True Temper OX
    Platinum and Reynolds 853 air-hardening steel alloys, custom drawn to
    our rigorous specs. Toptube and downtube are flared at the head tube
    for greater surface contact and rigidity. Tubeset specifications vary
    by frame size to offer riders of all sizes the strength and stiffness
    they need.

    Tires: Clearance for 2.1 inchers.

    Cable Routing: Triple tube cable stops make braking and shifting
    responsive as well as portage easy.

    Braze-Ons: 2 sets of water bottle bosses, triple stops on top tube for
    brake and derailleurs, canti studs.

    Dropouts: Ritchey forged vertical dropouts.
    Seatpost: Fits a standard 27.2 mm seatpost.
