Bicycles and dogs – what could be better?! From Gunnar Cycles:

Construction

It’s not just a great tubeset that makes a Gunnar. Every Gunnar is hand-built at Waterford Precision Cycles in Waterford, Wisconsin. We machine each frame with close-tolerance milling equipment to make sure each weld is clean and consistent. We use precision fixturing, aligning tools and fabrication protocols to insure that your Gunnar is straight and true, and we are blessed with talented craftspeople who are proud to build you your dream bike.

Gunnar History

We keep thinking of Gunnar as new and fresh, because of all the new products and the product evolution. Yet, it’s a brand that’s been around for over a dozen years. So here goes:

1998 – Initial development – CrossHairs was the first product developed. The initial catalog included four models:

CrossHairs – Cyclocross.
TireBiter – Road Race

Street Dog – Fixed gear ‘Cross

Rock Hound – Off-Road

The concept was developed with the help of Chris Dimmick and Diane Lees over dinner. The idea was to introduce a lower cost (than Waterford) to take advantage of the new generation of steel technology – air hardening steels. Reynolds 853 had proved itself in three years of Waterford designs and we wanted to take advantage of its TIG-weldability. Gunnar was a great dog who represented all the qualities we wanted in our new line of bikes. Friendly, smart and tough.
