Your Next Generation
Disc brakes and touring bikes make a natural combination. Disc brakes dramatically improve wet braking while reducing wear and tear on rims and tires. Add these brakes to our popular Grand Tour, and touring moves to a whole new level.
The Grand Disc comes with our strongest tubesets, giving you a solid ride and confidence even with the heavy loads of unsupported touring. We designed the fit for long distance travel with long chainstays for pannier clearance. We added lots of creature features, from stainless steel double eyelet rear dropouts to rack mounts and triple water bottle bosses.
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. With our Made to Measure service, you can also order horizontal dropouts for single speed riding, with either 120mm (fixed gear) or 135mm (single speed) rear dropout spacing. You can also order Paragon’s Slider or Rocker dropouts, which make it easy to convert your frame to disc brakes, single speed, hub-transmission, and a host of other possibilities. We also offer a convertible package, where we add braze-ons for derailleur drive trains to go with the slider/rocker dropouts. Finally, you can order a version designed for the Rohloff 14-speed rear hub.
The matching steel fork comes with rugged uni-crown construction with disc mounts and single eyelets for fenders.
