 Post subject: OS2 Gunnar Sport!
PostPosted: Thu Apr 14, 2005 4:07 pm 
Howdy All,

At long last, the new OS2 Gunnar Sport! Geometry details will be on the website within the next few days. As well as a photo.

The response has been excellent and orders are already moving! The OS2
Sport enhancements officially effective today:

Same OS2 tube set as the Roadie
1 1/8" headtube
57mm brake application
Same handling geometry as OS1
Will accept our 1 1/8" steel straight fork or the composite IRD Mosaic 57
Pricing same as Roadie

The OS2 Sport head tube is 2cm taller than the OS1 and has a net height
of 1cm over the OS2 Roadie. The semi-compact design is necessary to maintain the proper standover height.

Thanks to all of you who provided feedback to make these enhancements!

Please call or e-mail with any questions.

All the best,

Hi, what will tire clearance w/ fenders be like on the new Sport? Some bikes take really good advantage of longer reach brakes (Rivendell Ramboulliet, Heron, Kogswell), while others offer less clearance (Surly Pacer)...would love a sport that could take 700x35 with fenders!

The Sport uses the same brake location as the Heron (we build them, too). Hence; the clearance will be the same. We anticipate the typical user running 28 or 32c with fenders.

Since there is no size standardization among tire manufacturers, it is always difficult to know what maximum, under whose label, will fit.

I might throw out there that if 35c tires and fenders are a requirement the Crosshairs would be a worthwhile look. It is a road bike disguised as a cross bike.

I'll also refer you to the tire size discussion a little further back for some other suggestions from other posters.

Have a great day!

Straight steel fork????

Whatinell happened to the lovely curved steel fork blades, as per my 03 Sport? It's the first thing on a steel-framed bike that defines a steel frame.
