Guerrilla Gravity’s line of USA-made bikes are most intriguing. Recently they rebooted their line up, introducing a new modular frame platform based on a carbon front triangle that’s manufactured in Colorado. Unlike other brands that introduced new platforms recycling their front triangle mold, they’ve successfully pitched it as a desirable selling feature instead of a band aid go-around.
Using the headset cup flipchip system, one can swap out seatstay tuning kits, select components and rear shock, to effectively transform their frame into a completely different bike. It could be the most versatile quiver-killer available today.
Though we’ve spotted alloy models on the trails here and there, it wasn’t until Sea Otter that we spotted our first model in the wild: the 140mm/160mm 29″ wheeled model designated “the Smash”. Discovered at the MRP booth, it was equipped with a smattering of USA-Made componentry that included MRP suspension and Enve carbon wheels.
It was also our first time getting a close look at the unique headtube and the GeoAdjust Headset. The innovative headset cup flipchip systems allows one to adjust the reach, wheelbase and headtube angle — this frame is a bike nerd’s dream.
The model designation is listed on the seatstay; each tuning kit includes the seatstays, bearing, and derailleur hanger and bolt. This all comes with an amazing price tag for something so boutique and USA-made — a frameset price of $2195. Complete builds start at $3795.
Guerrilla Gravity certainly has our attention – I can’t think of a bike I’d like to test ride more right now. Especially taking into account their extremely long reach measurements. For a Shred Dogg, according to their recommendations, (based on my height and riding style) they recommend a #2 Frame size in the long orientation, which features a reach of 468mm. (holy cow!)
