Any reviews on these guys? Don't see much about them but seems like a good hardtail option.

These se are the details;

Frame- Rock Hound 19"
True Temper XO Platinum steel
USA Made frame!!
Fork- Fox F-29 100mm CTD

loved my 2001 26" Rockhound, just retired for an Advocate Hayduke. Geo was dialed and rode well can't imagine they've screwed it up by updating it. Great bike Have fun

Seems expensive, Gunnars don't hold their value particularly well. Frame only, it's worth maybe $500. And with every Gunnar, expect:

- the paint will chip very easily
- the seat post will slip
- tire clearance is just so-so

They can ride very nicely, depending on the size. I've had four Gunnars, and the smaller sized one rode great, but the larger frames were too stiff (they use size specific tubing) (the fourth was a cross bike, which also rode very well)

Thanks for the info, that helps.

What number would you put on it?

There are three currently listed on eBay, though i think they all are 26ers. One claims to be never ridden.

I have a Gunnar Street Dog. I picked up the frame/fork and a few parts for $45 I think. It was very street, as in it took me a month and a torch to get the seat post out. But I gathered up the needed parts and had the frame and fork powder coated and now it is a great bike.
