Colorado, USA-based mountain bike manufacturer Guerrilla Gravity recently launched extensive Cane Creek customization options on every model in their line-up. We shared a digital coffee with Bobby Brown, Guerrilla Gravity Marketing Manager, to learn more about the manufacturer, it’s history with Cane Creek Cycling Components, and why a Cane Creek partnership just makes sense for Guerrilla Gravity.
There’s no doubt that Guerrilla Gravity is ultra-intriguing for mountain bike riders, from its name to its bikes. Their most common question: Where did that name come from?
Speaking of customization… Guerrilla Gravity announced the expansion of their Cane Creek OEM partnership at their 2019 Launch Event. Cane Creek Helm fork will be offered as an upgrade on every model in Guerrilla Gravity’s line up. Additionally, The Smash and Megatrail will have the DBAir CS as an upgrade, and the Shred Dogg and Trail Pistol will have the DBCoil IL as an upgrade option. “A lot of riders were really excited to see the new Helm up close, and there has been a lot of interest in trying it out for the ‘19 season. Most of our riders try to go out of their way to support domestic manufacturing and everyone was stoked to see The Smash set up with some made-in-America suspension!” Marketing Manager Bobby Brown recalls.
Guerrilla Gravity proclaims they’ve been big fans of the Cane Creek 40 and 110 headsets, as well as the Double Barrel shocks, since the very beginning, using them on the first GG/DH and Megatrail bikes: “The DBCoil IL was our go-to shock for hard-hitting Trail Pistol builds from 2017 onward, and it remains a great option for riders who want the snap of a short travel bike along with the traction and ride quality of a coil shock when speeds pick up.”
“We celebrate our short supply chain by aligning ourselves with other domestic manufacturers like Cane Creek. Like our bikes, suspension products like the Helm and Double Barrel are made for goin’ fast and offer a ton of adjustments so every rider can fine tune their bike for their trails. We’re really pumped to build on our history with Cane Creek… we’ve got a very special partnership project in the works that will be publicly launched at the beginning of March. We can’t wait!”
