In case you're considering a Gunnar Sport don't let me scare you away. It's a great bike. My reasons for getting rid of it were all highly personal and subjective, for instance:
- The geometry isn't well suited to a front load and I've decided that I really like using a handlebar bag for randonneuring. But if you prefer to carry stuff in a saddle bag, trunk bag or jersey pockets, it will handle the load just fine.
- The handling was a bit twitchier than what I like in a distance bike. It's still more stable than most racing bikes and a lot of people would love the way it handles.
- The biggest tires I could fit on it with fenders were 25mm and I really prefer 28mm tires. If you're okay with 25mm or 28mm without fenders, then it's not a problem.
- The frame was a bit small for me. Really my fault for buying it with more of a racing fit in mind.
- Aesthetically I prefer the classic look of a level top tube and lugs. The Gunnar definitely has a more modern look.
- This one's entirely subjective, but the bike always felt a little bland under me. It had no personality. Many would probably say that's a good thing. For me, it just didn't offer any inspiration.
