It was a fun ride on Saturday, Jakob and me rode our cross bikes over in Rockville, CA. It was a blast! He turned his Surly into a ss cross bike. We rode over streams, puddles, etc. and we wished to have had a camera. Oh well.

But yesterday, like on Xmas day, I went to the quarry over by Cache Creek, west of Woodland, to enjoy some mud. My Gunnar is my friend. My good friend. Mud is good.

...this is what I saw. A mullet based truck bogged down in the creek. I am anti-car, so see what happens when you get some redneck kids ridin' in the mud and trying to cross Cache Creek?

Truck's been there for about a week.

How do you like the ride of your Crosshair. I was close to getting one, in fact I just neeeded to okay the submittal then backed out at the last moment, undecided between the crosshair and the roadie. Can you comment on the quality of the Gunnar bike in general (i.e. welds, tubing, craftsmanship). Also, where did you get your front cable hanger, I've been looking around for one of them. Sorry for so many ?'s.

it's actually a badass bike! I got it in October and didn't get to fully enjoy it until last month. Anyway, aside from versatility, I have used it in mtb style single track and very rough stuff. The top mounted brake levers help a lot with that.

Welds are well done, craftmanship top notch, and the tubing, good o'l Reynolds.

I also have a Gunnar Rock Hound mountain bike, but by far, the Crosshairs is my favorite now.

Next up, a Gunnar single speed.

As for the cable hanger, I got it almost 10 years ago from Softride. Works much better than the ones that go on the steerer tube.

Cheers!

man I remember driving over that after a rain. That creek goes from dry bed to torrent in no time flat. I'm sure with all the rain and Clear Lake full it's flowing quite well. Nice bike. Big props on the Bar Ends! we are a dying breed of cheapscapes!!! If you ever redo your cables, have the shifter cables leave the bar before the bend. It's the straightest and shortest line and seems to offer the smoothest shifting
