Guerrilla Gravity Looks Back on Ten Years of Making Mountain Bikes in the USA

Words: Guerrilla Gravity


The Prelude

It all started when three passionate mountain bikers bonded over a love for goin’ fast.

The trio’s backgrounds meshed perfectly. All three were lifelong mountain bikers and amateur racers: Will, a born entrepreneur, Matt, a race car and aerospace engineer, and Kristy, a community builder.

Over long road trips down to Angel Fire, NM, they discovered their individual dreams of racing and engineering better mountain bikes, backed by a company with a focus on the community. About 297 miles later, the idea for Guerrilla Gravity was born.

Then: Kristy, Matt, and Will in 2013 (L -> R)

Now: Kristy, Matt, and Will in 2021 with their future riders (L -> R)


2011: The Inception

Sitting around a dining room table, with white knuckles and a beer in hand, the paperwork for Guerrilla Gravity was signed. From that moment onward, GG officially went from a passion-fueled idea to a full-fledged LLC.

From the start, the fundamentals of the company were outlined:

-Made in the USA
-Rider Direct
-Community Driven

All of these were designed to contribute to GG’s mission to “make mountain biking more awesome.”

2012: Humble Beginnings

Like so many great companies, GG started in a garage. Specifically, Chief Engineer, Matt’s garage, the birthplace of the first-ever Guerrilla Gravity bike.

With limited resources but a lot of ambition, they took the chop saws and hand tools to begin working on the very first GG bike. After multiple design iterations, lots of manufacturing prep (which included hand-filing seat tubes, as pictured below), and many long nights, they created their first raw aluminum downhill mountain bike: The GG/DH Alpha prototype.

Will reaming the first seat tube. It took 3 hours.

Chief Engineer, Matt, standing in front of the first fully built Guerrilla Gravity bike.

With 200mm of travel and a new high performance/low complexity combination, the GG/DH set the precedent for the company’s forthright motto: “I like Goin’ Fast.” Shortly after, the first frame received its powdercoat. Initially, the decals were spray painted onto the frame using stencils. As you can see below, it didn’t work out great.



They decided vinyl decals were a better starting point.

The original packaging for the GG/DH, putting the leftover spray paint to good use.

The GG/DH traveled far and wide, racing the desert-painted rocks of the Southwest to the moss-lined forests of British Columbia. Today, the GG/DH lives out its retirement at the Shredquarters, hanging out by the kegerator and telling the stories of its glory days.

2013: New Lease On Bikes

As the GG/DH gained traction, they quickly outgrew Matt’s garage. The following 20 bikes were created in a makeshift manufacturing area in a buddy’s workshop, but it was obvious that GG needed a more permanent solution. A few months later, the lease on the first Shredquarters was signed.

Handmade frames and hand-painted signs. The grassroots team worked day and night to get the showroom ready to open.

Situated in the shadow of Mile High Stadium in Denver, the new Shredquarters allowed GG to combine a showroom with bike assembly and provided a larger capacity for its first true in-house manufacturing setup. It was a one-stop-shop for all things mountain bikes, and it allowed GG to expand both the team and vision.

The original builder wall showcased the customization options on GG bikes.

It was all hands on deck (and paws too).

The beginnings of the manufacturing space.

2014/2015: The Formative Years

Move over GG/DH, there’s a new bike in the family. In 2014 GG took a big step forward when its second bike was created: the Megatrail. Dubbed “The Big Mountain Liberator,” the 150/160mm travel bike certainly lived up to its name. The Megatrail was one of the first bikes on the market with a modern length, and was the catalyst to GG’s diverse and complete bike lineup that would come out only a few short years later.


Pictured above is the first-ever sketch of the Megatrail, which soon became the tangible frame you see below.



This time was a turning point for GG, when they received both the Chase for Business Grant and the City of Denver’s Jumpstart Biz Competition. These awards helped to fund the company's next phase of growth. With this, they expanded into the neighboring space, increasing production capacity.


The original "Crush Bus" that toured the U.S. Will was onboard the bus in Oregon when he got the call about receiving the Chase grant.

With these newfound resources, they took to the drafting board to continue to build out the GG lineup that we know today.

2016: Short On Travel, Long on Fun

The GG lineup doubled in size in 2016 with the debut of two new bikes, the Trail Pistol and the Pedalhead. The Trail Pistol was the shortest bike in the full suspension lineup, with geometry from 5 years in the future that blew up the norm (77º STA and 1200+mm wheelbase). This bike had everybody asking how to ride a bike with such a steep seat tube angle and long wheelbase…until they rode one. In the present day, this is referred to as modern geometry.

The Pedalhead was built as an adventure hardtail on a unique platform that featured a squared custom steel tubeset. The poppy, fun, and dynamic ride quality earned it the nickname of the “adventure hardtail.”

2017: The Beginning of the Modular Frame Platform

Matt’s early days engineering race cars inspired a new idea for the company. Race cars were built with a modular approach, where the vehicle features interchangeable components to be optimized for each track. He thought to himself, “wait a minute, can’t we apply that to mountain bikes?” And they could. With this, the current full suspension lineup (Megatrail, Trail Pistol, The Smash, and Shred Dogg) was built out with long and short travel modes on both 27.5” and 29” wheels, revolutionizing the industry standard of a “one-bike-quiver.”

This was also the year that The Smash was launched. As a 29er with 140mm of travel, The Smash was the middle child of the lineup. One that ensures you won’t forget about it. Over the next year, The Smash became GG’s best-selling bike.

2018: Revving up...

In the preceding years, carbon fiber was quickly becoming riders’ preference in the mountain bike industry. While industry trends hold influence, GG is known for doing things differently. The 11 person company went back to their original mission of making mountain biking more awesome and figured out a way to apply it to manufacturing carbon bikes.

To start, Chief Engineer, Matt, and the newly-hired Director of Composites, Ben, built up the first R&D area and began testing proprietary manufacturing methods for a new type of impact-resistant carbon fiber material just recently commercialized in the aerospace industry. After a few years of research, testing, and iterations, the new type of carbon was ready to be implemented in the manufacturing of GG bikes in 2018.

2019: One Small Step for GG, One Big Leap for Bicycle-Kind

2019 was a revolutionary year. Scientists released the first-ever image of a black hole and GG launched Revved Carbon.

The Revved Carbon manufacturing was a patented technological breakthrough. This material allowed GG to begin manufacturing carbon frames without sacrificing durability, cost, and domestic manufacturing. After extensive testing, Revved proved to be 300% more impact-resistant than traditional carbon for mountain bike frames. The measured durability had a lot of positive implications for GG’s transition to carbon. With this, the lifespan of the bike outpaced your average carbon ride. It also rendered new levels of efficiency, reducing labor time sufficiently to continue building its domestic manufacturing operations.

Boiled down, all this engineering jargon means you get on the trail faster, your bike lasts longer, and the trails you love are less impacted.

One of the first Revved Carbon Frames in its mold

Don’t be fooled by these black frames, in reality, they are much “greener.” Revved Frames can be fused in approximately 30 minutes right here in the US, which means less energy wasted and more bikes built. The material is US-sourced and easily powder coated, which eliminates Volatile Compounds (VOC’s) being put into the air from the standard use of wet paint.

2020: Pandemic Pandemonium

In 2020, things slowed down for a lot of the world, but in the mountain bike industry they sped up. GG was growing rapidly, so they bid adieu to their beloved Mile High location. Looking to not only increase output but also their team, the search for a new Shredquarters began. A new spot, just south of downtown, was identified, securing a 5x larger space to keep the momentum growing.

Farewell Bryant Street, one of the CNC machines starts its journey down I-25.

2021: A look Towards the Future

2021 kicked off with a bang, signing Yoann Barelli to join the team. A passionate rider with mutual values and a constant mission to push the limits of possibility.

Meanwhile, the build out of the new facility continued, increasing capacity and efficiencies with a vision to become a beacon for the reshoring movement in the cycling industry.



It was all hands on deck to bring the showroom to what you see today.

Powder coating was brought in-house at the new facility.

A frame going into the new Fusing Machine (a.k.a The Frame Maker 10K).

Current water slide decals are a significant improvement from the days of spray painted and vinyl cut decals.

It’s hard to pack the last ten years of bikes, sweat, and beers into a few pages. At the end of the day, however, it all comes down to this:

-Thousands of bikes made in the USA
-Countless design iterations culminating in the patented Revved carbon line of bikes today
-65 team members focused on building the next generation of mountain bikes
-A supportive and diverse community of riders

So, when you pass another GG rider on the trail, throw your horns high, and know that you are a part of “making mountain biking more awesome.”

 Great success story. Shows what can be done without starting off with huge amounts of cash, so long as you are willing to put the time and dedication in. I wonder how long it will be until they expand to the point the are making frames for the likes of Evil and Niner, now that would be awesome. I know the pain of sharing an 'office' with several cnc machines too, bluetooth ear defenders make it bearable.

 Best story in mountain biking. I've got a 2014 Megatrail (26" no less) with 5,000 miles on it that I still ride on occasion, sold my alloy 2018 Trail Pistol to a friend who'll be riding it this weekend, ride my Revved Smash like its stolen (but its not one of the bikes that snatched a few weeks ago!) and a 2014 GG/DH is still really effing capable:

 What an awesome retrospective. I'm glad we (MRP) have been along for the journey. I still remember getting a call from Will, and him showing me the move to Revved frames. I was like "whaaaaaaaa?!" So incredible to see how they've grown – very organic, but every evolutionary step a big one.

The coolest part of the GG story is that the company was born out of product, not marketing. That they've controlled their manufacturing from the get-go is a major differentiator from the competition.

 I wish you growth and success, but not in the way that makes you growth that much and that fast that makes you forget about your mission and pushes you to move your production to Taiwan and then you become another brand that does the same. So stay true to your principles please!!
  • 14 1
 Taiwan... hopefully. It's Vietnam where most frames form the big names are made today. a worker in Taiwan wants past 1800 $ net a month and they have rights, insurance and stuff. You manage with 250 $ and the occasional pat in the back in Vietnam.

Big bicycle companies are into racing only as long as it's racing to the bottom.

 @Vindiu: 100% agree. This is why it's so important to support companies with good ethics. It's easy to talk the talk, but then when it comes time to make a purchase consumers easily forget the talk, price shop, and usually opt for the cheaper option without regard to where, how, and whom made the thing. Conscious consumerism is not easy, but when it comes to luxury items like mountain bikes it shouldn't be that hard.
  • 6 0
 @Vindiu: good point, with Taiwan as en example I was trying to define outsourced manufacturing as a whole, but is true that if you look in particular at the different countries each of them tell a whole different story. We are never going to see a return to handmade and "Made in USA" " Made in Germany" sort of scenario but at least I would like to see the projects that are born with that principle to stick to it and make it work on the long term. Not to turn the way Intense did, hand building with alloy in the USA to end as (IMO) an irrelevant brand that produces in the same place as everyone else with carbon. Stick to your ideals and make them work.

 @not-really: Yes, I see my comment might be seen as harsh but I completely see and share your point. fortunately, groups like Accel (Lapierre, Ghost, etc.) are now making carbon frames in Hungary. Closer to where most of them will be sold and under stronger environmental and labour regulations. It's not the regulations in them selves but the fact that there's clear standards at least so people is earning a decent salary under reasonable working conditions and are not getting poisoned. It feels better riding a bicycle made like that. Now we would need to make the components made closer home too. GG and others are showing that's actually possible to do it.

 @Vindiu: have you seen the salaries in Hungary? There is a reason why big businesses wanted to extend the European Union of 15 to the 10 eastern countries: cheaper labour.
  • 1 0
 @zoobab2: Definitely cheaper than Central Europe, but nowadays Hungary for example has 4 timeas higher salaries in average than Vietnam. Th health an safety and environmental regulations are those of the UE, not that you can expect the same level of compliance than that of Western Europe, but they're closing the gap.

 DUDE YES. I have seen their bikes a LOT when i lived in Colorado. Everyone i talked to really liked riding them. This is one of the companies i have loved watching their story and the fact that the owners and other employees are truly passionate about all aspects of the sport is wonderful and really hard to find nowadays. These are some great dudes and gals. I am glad to see them sticking to their roots and turning out some good stuff! keep killin it folks, i love this story
  • 11 1
 I remember 1st seeing these guys at the very 1st Sedona MTB Fest. I thought that they were a joke in their big school bus and silly name and font. They had a contest to 'assemble' a bike with a partner but each of you had to hold a beer. My gf volunteered me and I was partnered with a young teen so he had to hold a water. We won the contest and a GG T shirt. I told my gf that I bet the company won't be around in another 5 years. I was wrong and I'm glad that I'm so wrong. GG is really doing some rad stuff. End story.

GG has certainly stayed true to the Community Driven value as they grew, kudos.

 Ridiculously cool story. I grew up on the front range and rode with some folks that had the first generation trail pistols that the article discussed. I remember thinking how crazy the geo sounded and wasn't enamored with aluminum. Seems like I was the idiot haha. Bought the revved smash right after they released it to make up for not being an early adopter of this company. Bike is amazing. Good stuff GG and keep up the hard work!
  • 3 0
 Early adopter of a fully revved Trail pistol.

I have to say that my experience with GG as a whole has been really positive. I decided to go with them due to the bikes being made in the USA and all the great things I heard about their customer service. My Trail Pistol is extremely capable but I do with I knew about the Pistola option at first. I definitely would have went with that instead. I ended up getting a new shock myself and bumping my pike up to 150. The bike is great for my current riding conditions and checks all the boxes.

There have been a few bumps in the road but GG has always stepped in eventually to sort things out. I do believe that they are a company that will make things right if the fault is their own. Also I just got an email that they are fulfilling orders in 1-2 weeks....which is kind of absurd considering the current market.

Final note: I am anxiously waiting for a fully revved gnarvana so I can get some new seatstays and finally utilize the modular platform.

 I remember running into these guys at a "Duthie Days" in like... 2013 maybe? After talking machining with one of their boys for an hour I'd have bought one on the spot if I had the money. How knowledgeable and stoked they were on domestic manufacturing stuck in my head until a couple years ago when I was finally making grown up money and could buy myself one. Never looked back either, you guys made a life long customer because of a 30 minute conversation.

 GG are great bikes and great people, riding their bikes for a few years now, still thin fondly of my aluminum Smash, but the carbon/aluminum frame is a much better product.

 I don't mind championing Made In USA but it feels hollow when all the other components on a bike are Made in Taiwan. Is there a Mostly Made In USA bike company?

And on and on.

 @halljam: No doubt, gotta start somewhere. From my research (same in-depth research as anti-vaxxers perform) I've found that you can get pretty close to a full American build, but the drivetrain components seem to be difficult to find American made. Carbon components can be sourced, for the most part, but it falls apart when you get to the more intricate components.
  • 3 0
 @singletrackslayer: I believe the only American made parts available are frame, coil rear shock (push), hubs, and stem (i9). If you include Canada you can get rims and seatpost.

There are no suspension forks, brakes, derailleurs, chains, cassettes, handlebars, seats, tires, spokes, cranks (unless you want profile BMX) made in the US or Canada.

 I bought a Trail Pistol a few months ago and absolutely love it. The geometry fits like a glove, the suspension is buttery smooth and it pedals great. Very predictable and fun. I had a small QC issue at first and GG took care of it immediately. In fact they shipped out a new part immediately using 2-day air to get me back up and riding. With these bikes being modular I can play around with different setups but that’s just the icing on the cake. Also, I’m stoked to support a small business making great stuff.

 The powder coat finish on GG is massively more durable than the wet paint on any other carbon bike I’ve owned.

 Agree. I had never heard of them until I was in Denver for a couple months. They are all over out there. I have one now and people are always asking what it is, they’ve never heard of them.

They always have! Plus on the new Revved ones, I think an extra set of bosses for a wb-Mount-type tool kit or similar

 My revved Trail Pistol arrived this week (size 4), and it has room for _two_ bottles in the front triangle.

 I have a size 3 Smash with dh shock and size 3 trail pistol with inline air. They both fit one standard bottle and one smaller 500ml bottle.
