I don't have a Rockhound, but my road bike is a Gunnar, and I'm building up a Gunnar Ruffian (singlespeed version of the Rockhound, basically). Gunnar makes a good product and is an excellent company when it comes to customer support. I haven't heard anything bad from anyone who rides a Gunnar. Check out their forums at http://www.gunnarbikes.com

Once I finally get the nerve up to ask my wife permission I will be getting an IF steel deluxe. I've been wanting one of those for years, it is my second choice. My first choice would be a Fat Chance "Yo Eddy" but that won't be happening.

Just buy it, its much easier to get forgiveness than permission.

how did i miss this thread?

to the OP, i plan on getting a Soma Groove. if you get one, you might want to make sure it is made from Tange steel. they switched recently....or there is nothing wrong with the Reynolds either. i am looking forward to geeting mine. from what i have researched, they seem like a great frame for the price. i want to get a Soma Juice too!!
