Gunnar Rockhound 17" frame, brought 3 years ago partialy built then been in storage since, I then built up the bike the other week and took for 1 ride of less than 2 hours on the local footpaths, the frame is definitely too big for me so needs to go.

These are stunning hand made in the USA steel frames using the finest American steel.

There are a few marks / chips from storage all of which I have pictured, otherwise pretty much as new condition, currently retails at £795. Just looked on Gunnar site and the frame now cost £885 for frame only !!

Asking £165 delivered UK. Contact for overseas costs.

Would be interested in swapping / trading for 16" frame or a cheap 16" complete bike.

interested in the forks... but I'm confused as to how a 445mm A-C fork can be 80mm suspension corrected. Is it something to do with the rake? Most other 80mm suspension replacements are 410-420mm A-C

Hi,
I have someone who is said they are taking them but just pointed out the length so they may be available again unless he is happy with that.

To answer your question I have no idea, I do know from measuring these are the 445 version, and the rest of the info is on the Salsa site.

Sorry to not be of much use.

Cheers,

Andrew

Massively reduced price of £165 delivered, absolute bargain as frame retails for £885 now in the UK.
