Hunter "Classic" Cross

This one's an old friend that's got new life. I had Rick whip this up for me ~7 years ago or so, but broke a fork blade last season and took it back to Bonny Doon for a full refresh. New brazed Supercrown fork, new seat tube, new braze-ons for 1x, and new paint in a killer ice blue color. It was my favorite bike before the fork broke and nothing has changed — this thing still rips.

The steel is all brazed, skinny tubes, 1" steerer, canti mounts, wishbone stays — a "classic" Hunter.

Build is SRAM 1x, Paul MiniMotos, SimWorks cockpit, HED Belgium+ laced to i9 Torch hubs.



Some more photos up on Bolinas Ridge. Hot one yesterday...

When you get some time, could you add more pics?

This is exactly what I would like to have one of these days.

All business but good looks as well.

Good God that's a beauty. Classic and looks like it would be a ton of fun to rip around on. Are those Nanos?

Thanks dudes! Rick does amazing work and is a super cool guy on top of it. A real pleasure to work with both for the initial build and the refresh. I'll do my best to grab some more photos this afternoon — it's that standard sort of misty grey day here in San Francisco that should make the paint a little easier to see.

I'm actually not sure of when the initial break happened, which was a bit scary at the time. The original fork was a TIG unicrown, and it split right along the seam and spiderwebbed down into the left blade. Only really noticed it when I was washing it up after a ride. Still counting my lucky stars on that one.

Yep, Nanos. Want to try some Riddlers once the rain stops — I think they'll have a bit more bite once it starts to get dry and dusty — but the Nanos are killer for the tacky dirt I ride in the winter and spring.
