Guerilla Gravity Updates USA Made Pedalhead Hardtail Mountain Bike Frame
The folks at Guerrilla Gravity have made a name for themselves with USA-made mountain bike frames that have all the competitive advantages with a smaller environmental footprint. Their beloved 29-inch Pedalhead steel hardtail is back and better than ever, with updated angles and interchangeable dropouts.
These latter bikes will be single-speed, thanks to their modular legs that allow easy chain tensioning. The 12x148mm axle retains its position when the rear wheel is removed, so there is no need to reset the chain tension after removing and replacing the wheel. For riders who like to ride between gear options, this system should work smoothly.
The Pedalhead retains its square steel tube which GG says will give riders all the stiffness where they need it while maintaining the tolerance of the steel where it needs it most. Apart from a few centimeters of dropper cable, the housing and the pipes are all external and quickly accessible.
The Pedalhead 2022 is only available in size 3, with a 460mm reach and 430mm seat tube which GG says will fit riders between 5’9 “and 6”. The head tube angle averages 65 Â° for a length of 115mm, and the company did not share the seat tube angle in its press release. Behind the BB, chainstays measure 435mm with the fixed dropouts installed, or 428-437mm with the axle mounted between the sliding dropouts.
The GG versions are all customizable, starting at $ 3,495 with a Pike Select fork and SRAM NX drivetrain, $ 4,095 with Pike Select + and GX drivetrain, and up to $ 4,795 to include Pike Ultimate and X01 drivetrain.
