The New Roadie Disc Frame from Gunnar Cycles

The New Roadie Disc Frame from Gunnar Cycles
Gunnar Cycles (USA) – Press Release: Hot Discs for the Road.

The new Gunnar Roadie disc is bred for speed and total performance, yet it represents a common-sense approach to performance design:
  • Nice, tight handling with responsive steering
  • An efficient fit for road racing
  • A tubeset that exploits the advances in steel technology while retaining great road feel, efficient pedaling, solid sprinting and confident descending

We’ve honed the design down to everything that helps you go faster.

Flat mount disc technology opens a whole new dimension of road riding.

Disc brakes have now been refined to a point where they make sense on performance road bikes:
  • Flat mount caliper technology on the chainstay results in a cleaner and lighter weight design than earlier disc designs at weights comparable to caliper brake models
  • Clearance for up to 32C tires, which offer improved handling an lower rolling resistance
  • There’s less wear and tear on rims, allowing lighter wheel builds than is needed for earlier disc builds and even caliper brake builds
  • Improved braking in wet conditions
  • The smallest geometry fits 650B wheels

Have special needs and interests? Gunnar offers a wide range of paint and frame options. When the need for custom fit is called for, you can take advantage of our “Made to Measure” version.
