This is my new Fast Lane build-up. It turned out really nice with the black & white panels on the pearl in black paint scheme. The pearl in black paint is stunning in person. You can just make out the black lines around the panels, which turned out better than I thought it would. Took it out for a quick 20 miles today and it rides beautifully w/ a relatively relaxed geometry. Handles my 210lbs body frame quite well. I have it set up as a 1x10 with a 46t up front and a 11-36 in the rear which gives me all the gearing I really need.
Sram Force crank and shifters w/ XX cassette and XX rear derailleur. Chris King headset and BB. Thompson Elite post w/ some 3T throw in to the mix. Mavic TN-719 rims laced to DT Swiss 240's running 28c RibMO's

You actually caught some of the black pearl in the photo. The panels with smaller "Gunnar" decals looks great.

My buddies laughed at me when I suggested all I needed was a 44 or 46 up front and a 12-27 in the rear. The fact you have a 11-36 makes it better.

Solid ride with solid parts pick. It's nice to see someone who knows their riding and picks a bike that is best for them and not some fad.

Enjoy.

Just picked up a beat up Roadie and it's quickly becoming my favorite project. Don't know the year; I'm guessing '03 - '04? Winwood carbon fork. Full Ultegra Componentry. Shimano M520 pedals. Mavic Open Pros wrapped with Bontrager RXL. Thompson Elite seatpost. Chicks dig the color scheme. I get compliments all the time. Recently dubbed "The Incredible Hulk". The name is apt not only for its looks but for its climbing prowess.Image

I had this Crosshairs about 10 years after buying it used. I liked the ride, but was never really comfortable on it. I finally realized it was too small (60cm), and I replaced it with a 62cm Crosscheck.

Image

A few years back, I bought a used Rockhound. It rode wonderfully, but it was also too small. And ugly green. I sold it and recently bought the next size bigger Rockhound. It fits better, but doesn't ride as well. I think this is due to the bigger/thicker tubing used (it's about 0.4 pounds heavier).

Memo to Richard: 100mm is too short for a headtube on a 20" frame.

Here is my Rockhound on Maybury's singletrack last weekend. I love this frame. This bike makes me a faster rider if that can be believed... I enjoy it so much I left my roadie home for the last Critical Mass in dowtown Detroit and rode this.

Hi folks. A Gunnar rider for ten years, but I'm finally getting around to joining the forum.

Here is my Street Dog, which I have been riding now for ten years.

Image

Built by: Harris Cyclery, West Newton MA.

Miles ridden: Hard to say. I'm something of a grouch, and I refuse to use a cycle computer.
Lets say, a lot of miles. Bike rides like a dream.

The past few springs around the Boston area have been very rainy. So, I simply put the fender on and left them on. This also provides a handy place to put red reflective material.
I frequently ride in the evening hours. I generally try to ride until the snow/ice/freezing rain start to fly.

Glad to be here! :lol:
