Here are -- FINALLY -- the pictures of my new custom Gunnar Rock Tour. My "test" ride ended up being a tour around Lake Simcoe (700+KM)

Niiiice ride, it has that 'just right' balanced look to it.

Isn't it great getting a quainted with a new bike, kind of like that initial 'honeymoon' period in a relationship when you're discovering each other's quirks.

What a unique looking bike! Its got that mixte style, combined with 26" wheels (right?), and drop bars and road brifters. Thats whats great about custom, you get it exactly the way you like it.

And what a test ride, too! Your test took more miles than most people's entire life with their bike!

peace,
sam

Yup. 26 inch wheels with 105 on the front, LX on the back (eventually upgrade to XT) and nice Bike Planet fenders (good at fending off all the gravel I had to deal with).

It looks so...tasty...

Nice effort on the "Test" ride, if it feels as good as it looks I can surely understand why you went so far!

Very nice... enjoy!

Now a quick question... when you say 105 up front does that mean you are running a 52-42-30 or simular? Sounds like a grreat mix of road and MTB... !

Yup.

Actually Waterford did (their sister/cousin manufacturing company). When ordering I can specify Gunnar colours or I can go with a custom paint job from Waterford. Nice to have options.

The paint job and white trim tires are FAB. You are quite the photog with those cool shots of the CN tower, especially the one in the clouds. Keep pushing for those wide bike lanes
