It’s always great to find out about new American mountain bike frame builders. What is doubly great, is when you find out they aren’t just making another standard hardtail. The guys and girl at Guerrilla Gravity are actually making a full on race spec 8″ travel downhill bike handmade in Colorado. Vital MTB has photos of their GG/DH bike including an interview with head honcho Will Montague.
