Gunnar Crosshairs

I’ve owned this Gunnar Crosshairs since around April 2011. I just realized that I’ve never posted it, so here it is. I dug up some photos of prior set ups to post. The first two photos are the closest to it’s current set up, however it now rocks some 44cm Salsa Cowchippers. It’s a super versatile bike that can handle just about anything I can throw at it.

It looks good loaded, but that first picture of it unadorned, against the graffiti'ed wall looks so good. Such great lines, especially the rake in the front fork.

+1 for a silver headset and silver spokes, too.

Thanks! I've always been a fan of silver spokes. I've built up a few wheelsets over the years with black spokes, and always end up going back to tried and true silver. I feel that silver spokes kind of disappear, where black spokes just look so visually heavy.

Thanks! I Would definitely recommend picking one up if you have the opportunity. I usually run it with 32's in road duties, and Nano 40's for just about everything. The 40's are about as big of a tire that can fit in the back.
