Gunnar Rocktour

Here’s a few pictures of the recently completed Gunnar Rocktour which was built up for backroads/dirt road touring. We built this beauty up with Shimano 9spd bar end shifters, Shimano brake levers running the Avid BB7 Road calipers, Shimano XT crankset, cassette, f.derailleur and a smoking hot XTR shadow on the rear. The wheelset is a handbuilt set of DT 7.1d rims laced to Dt-Swiss 340 hubs using Dt Swiss Comp spokes and brass nipples. Tires are 700 X 44 WTB Mutanoraptors. Stem and seatpost are both Thomson. The handlebar option, which is always the most fun part of the bike to choose is a set of the new tiawanese made WTB dirt drops. The saddle is the ultra comfy B17 Brooks which should be standard equipment for touring bikes. Pedals are MKS touring and we’ve mounted a set of the Bruce Gordon ti. toeclips just for the sake of it.
