As we bid goodbye to the frigid days of San Francisco’s summer and move closer to fall, bike shops around the Bay Area are starting to hear more and more about cyclocross season. One name that goes hand and hand with this time of year is Rick Hunter. For years Hunter’s framebuilding expertise has contributed to some of the lightest, fastest and, indeed, most alluring cyclocross bikes on the course.
Utilizing unquestionably high quality steel tubing with self-styled techniques, Hunter continues to produce some of the most sought-after frames on the market. Often times the wait for a custom frame can be considerable, but Rick has been good enough to provide the Freewheel with a few frames in popular sizes.Distinguishing features of the frames are immediately noticeable in the wishbone stay pattern and clean tig welds. Hunter cyclocross forks are also available and can be cut to size in the shop. Feel free to swing by or give us a call if you have any questions.
