I purchased this last year at Harris Cyclery in West Newton, Massachusetts - home of the inimitable Sheldon Brown, master of the fixed gear and all things cycling related. A few nicks/dings/scrapes, all of which are shown in the attached photos, are from shop wear. It turned out to be a bit long on the top tube for me so I built up a replacement. Still love the ride (light, quick and quiet) but need to make room for my next project.

Ridden only 500 fair weather miles (saddle only 50 miles) and never crashed. Water bottle cage, cyclo-computer and factory touch up paint included. Offered for $825 (frame and fork alone purchased new would cost $1,100) plus shipping (CONUS only).

This isn't worth much to you, but if I didn't already have a fixed gear bike for the road (converted my old CSi), I'd sure be interested. It may be price -- higher than the raft of new budget OTS fixed gear bikes, although you're offering way more bike -- but it may just be timing. You're past the early season rush, but too early for the hey-it's-fall thing.

$825 is very fair; now, if you lower it to the $700 range it'll be a steal. It may just be a case of timing, since LBS's are putting everything on sale right now, end of season, etc etc...

Does this have rear braze-ons for a rack? It only mentions the "2 sets of water bottle bosses" in its description on their website. Also what's the width of the handlebars (ctc)?

Keith,

Thanks for your questions. There are threaded holes in the rear dropout plates (see the detail in the second picture of the Street Dog model page on the website http://www.gunnarbikes.com/streetdog.php) and threaded braze-ons just behind the fork dropouts that came with and still have screws. The handlebars are 40cm ctc. Hope this helps.

Let me know if there are any other questions.

Thanks,

Dave

Dave,

Thanks for the information. Now one more question for you. The Gunnar website states that this has a 125mm headtube -- but looking at your bike, it looks taller than that to me. Would you mind measuring this for me and verify this length.

Got one

For what it is worth I have Gunnar Street Dog that is to small for me and yet remains one of my favorite bikes! And like many here I have a bunch. This bike is priced very reasonably - it is way more bike than any stock fixie.

If anybody has a 62 and needs a smaller one let me know!

Keith A,

I wouldn't mind measuring, however, the bike just sold. Thanks for your interest.

Bigman,

It is a terrifically fun ride. If mine were a bit small for me I would have mounted a longer stem and kept it but a bit big just gets uncomfortable after a short while. Anyway, I'm glad you enjoy yours and thanks for the comments.

Dave

Darren,

I used to play tennis at Grand Slam but now live on the Shoreline (other side of New Haven). I get to GW from time to time (test rode a Fierte IT behind Greenwich Hardware last weekend) but the Gunnar Street Dog has just sold. Thanks for your interest.

Dave

Dave -- Thanks for the update. BTW, if you still have the bike in hand, I would be interested to see if the actual head tube length matches their specs. Looking at your bike, it looks taller to me.
