Guerrilla Gravity Launches V2 Gnarvana Modular Frame Kit

Nov 16, 2022 at 13:27
by Guerrilla Gravity  
The V2 Gnarvana has been Yoann Barelli's go-to setup for 2 years. He redefines the limits when it comes to product testing.

Press Release: Guerrilla Gravity

We are excited to announce the launch of the V2 Gnarvana Modular Frame Kit. These kits continue to build out our unique Modular Frame Platform. The updated Gnarvana is a new model on the V2 rear triangle, complementing the fully Revved Rear Triangle kits for the Trail Pistol that came out late last year.

The kits feature a mixed-material rear triangle, with a Revved Carbon chainstay and Alloy seatstay. This combo is our strongest and stiffest available.

The Modular Frame Platform was developed in 2016 to make the idea of “n+1” a lot more attainable. Unique to GG, the platform allows you to transform your existing GG into a completely different model with a Modular Frame Kit and a handful of components.

Further, the Modular Frame Kits lengthen the lifespan of your GG bike. Reflecting on our sustainable priorities of: reduce, reuse, recycle, we hope riders see the value in riding their current bike longer, with this new ability to keep it fresh and modern with a smaller carbon footprint. When the time comes to retire your ride, our Revved Carbon material is recyclable at the end of its life.

Current Gnarvana owners now have the option to update their ride to the V2 platform. By using the Revved swingarm, riders benefit from increased stiffness and a smoother ride quality. Additionally, the V2 uses SRAM’s Universal Derailleur Hanger and a 0 mm rear wheel dish.


For riders on the V1 rear triangle with alloy swingarms, full rear triangle kits for the Gnarvana and Trail Pistol are available.

For riders on the fully Revved Trail Pistol, all you need is a seatstay kit and a few components to convert it into the V2 Gnarvana.

Both the Rear Triangle and Seatstay Kits only require a few simple tools and basic know-how to swap. We have step-by-step guides available in our Owner’s Area to make the DIY conversion easier than assembling an IKEA nightstand.

Here's first hand feedback from a rider performing the swap:

bigquotesEssentially, you can take a 120mm Trail Pistol that you ride most of the time, and, with the right parts, minimal tools, and a bit of mechanical know-how, convert it into a 160mm Gnarvana… The process is pretty straightforward, and you only need some allen keys and a torque wrench.Locke H

Current GG owners and the GG-curious alike now have even more options to transform their rides. This option expands the lifetime of your bike, not only due to the durability of our Revved Carbon material but also the versatility that the platform provides. You have a bike that can grow with your riding and accommodate the limitless possibilities of terrain.

You can see all the Modular Frame Kits at RideGG.com.

 I thought my Spire was the best bike I had to date until I bought the V2 Gnarvana. Similar kinematics with the gnarvana pedaling better and being easier to tune for big hits. What sold me on gg was the domestic manufacturing, price, and external cable routing.

 Also came from a spire, but went to a smash. Absolutely love it

 My Criteria when I was buying a bike back in 2019 was: #1 geometry; #2 threaded bb; #3 external cable routing; #4 aluminum rear stays; #5 made in USA. When GG came out with this bike that year, it was like they where building it specifically for me. I went with the Smash and absolutely love the bike. Nice work GG!

 +1 for the Smash
Pretty impressed with my super Smash (160mm fork, 62.5mm rear shock) after only 5 rides.

Converted from a Megatrail MX and the geo is perfect. More efficient, able to tackle 95% of what the MT could, blasts over chunk, and still whippy despite the 29er rear wheel. (Really similar geo to a Ripmo or SB140 LR) Keeping the MT rear end for park days.

I actually didn't like the V1 Gnarvana because of the long rear center. It felt very "eerily forward" to me. But I tend to like to ride off the back... old habits. The Gnarvana wanted to GO though, FAST. Very stable at speed. A bit understeery, more effort in the turns. And pedaled uphill surprisingly well. The V1's progressiveness meant some tire buzz every ride. Sounds like the V2 sorted that out. If I raced it would be the right GG config I think.

 @chrod: horses for courses. I run the Gnar seatstays with a 60mm shock and 160mm fork. Specifically for the long rear end. I am on a size 4 and it feels great to me compared to the Smash stays.
  • 2 0
 @jdejace: Yeah that ratio FC:RC is important, the shorter stays are better fit for the smaller sizes, Gnar is better balanced on the size 4, and on the size 4 I could see the 435-440mm stay length feeling too short

 @chrod @jdejace interesting takes appreciate the insight. I'm on a size 3 front triangle in "long" w/ the Smash stays and 170mm fork (which reduces reach and slacks HTA to about 63.5 based on my iPhone measurement). I discovered when I built it up with parts off my previous bike, 170/170 Capra, I could get away with running my 65mm DVO Jade, just barely but no real issues over the course of a year riding. I just got the email today that my Gnar V2 rear triangle is ready for pickup, stoked for the revved chainstays and being able to run a non-dished wheel. I also just picked up at their warehouse sale a 60mm stroke Kitsuma Air, that now I'm thinking I might remove the spacer to make it 65.
I do have to shout out GG, Will and Matt are great, very down to earth and approachable. Chatted with Will for a bit at the warehouse sale the other week. (also picked up some amazing deals)
  • 2 1
 @chacou: Can confirm, GG's customer service is stellar, great folks.

I also can get away with a 65mm RS SD Ultimate on the Smash, that shock is so progressive it never comes within 10mm of bottom (0 tokens, 215psi). It looks like knobbies should hit seat tube at ~62-63mm. (2.6" Butcher)

How did the (ultrasmash?) 170mm front end climb up tech stuff? And do you feel the BB is still low enough?

Really interested to hear your impressions of the V2 stays when you've given them a thrashing.
  • 2 0
 @chrod: I haven’t noticed any issues with BB height, what I have had an internal struggle with is the “floppy” front end on slow tech climbs, even to the point where I have a 160 air spring on my bench that I’ve been meaning to put in. However I ride a lot of pretty steep, “natural” trails, so I do like the higher front end, thus haven’t done the swap to the 160. Smash is great platform! Looking forward to trying the Gnarvana out

 When Facebook lets go over 10k and Twitter halves in size, and even Amazon lets white collar jobs go ahead of holidays why would this seem like a surprise or a source of outrage?

Losing your gig sucks and it happens to everyone, been there. But you’re missing the forest for the trees. A few less articles is a drop in the bucket to 30k probably the better part or over $100k jobs going bye bye. Lot less people who just stopped buying for the holidays and probably 3x more spooked to pull back.

Online advertising is going through a huge shift. Maybe they had to lose three at cycling tips to save twenty.

 Does anyone that owns one of these actually take it apart and go back and forth from a trail to an enduro bike? Seams like you’d need a big pile of parts to do it right.
  • 3 0
 A few people but the minority for sure. Folks will run the pistola as a trail bike and have a gnarvana setup for park season. You can do it with just a shock and an airspring change (with the right fork), 2 sets of wheels is nice though.

 I've had my GG for a little over a year now and have swapped it over 3 times now, between a shred dogg and Megatrail. Got it in the fall and built it up as a 140mm bike for the fall/winter riding, swapped to a 165/180mm bike for summer, and just switched it back to 140mm. Only parts I change are the shock and seatstay, fork I change the travel with the spacers (Mezzer), but with other forks you can swap a different air spring. Chain needs an extra couple links on long travel which I just do with a master link, whole process is ~1.5 hours. Wheels, tires, cockpit, brakes, etc all stay the same. For me it's definitely been worth having the ability to switch and I like having the two different bikes.

 I run mine as a Shred Dogg mullet most of the time at 150/130. I have an air shock that lowers travel to 120 and I can run full 29 for when I'm doing an adventure race or something that I want better rolling. I also have the Megatrail kit so I can swap to something plusher for the occasional park day or more challenging trails. I have Helm up front that's adjustable for any of these setups. I probably change 2 or 3 times each season. Not something I would do weekly, but for my purposes a lot more practical than 2 more bikes.

 Back when I had mine I swapped between the Trail Pistol and Smash any time I'd head out west or on trips to bike parks in the south east. It's really not that big of a hassle!

 Not often, but I did swap my Smash to a Trail Pistol for the Firecracker 50 race this year. My hardtail frame broke so I used the parts I had laying around to turn the GG into as much of an XC machine as it can be. Spoiler alert, it's an awesome trail bike but it's a heavy XC bike. I did beat my buddy on their SB115 so that I was nice Smile

Overall I've changed the rear stays back and forth 4 times in three years.
  • 2 1
 More than you’d think actually.

I’m a travel nurse and travel the country in a 5th wheel. I only have room for one bike. GG let’s me have two for the space of one. I run it as a Gnarvana and Pistola. Only change the shock, stays and fork. I also have a couple sets of tires depending on location.

Luckily they are amazing bikes. I like the Pistola but the Gnarvana is the best riding bike I’ve ever put a leg over.

 @txcx166 I have a prior generation aluminum Shred Dogg with the MRP (travel adjust) fork. I have 2 shocks, a 57mm (I think) fox and a 65mm RS Coil. I can set it up 135/140, 145/150 (using the fox shock) and 155/160 or 165/170 using the RS Coil. To answer your question, yes I keep it in 135/140 most of the time, and switch to 165/170 for trips to big places/parks. I do this 2-3 times/year. It's like having two bikes, but with identical touchpoints and other particulars like reach and spread. I really like it. The biggest "problem" is that i'm on year 5 with it and have no way to justify buying a new bike!

 Maybe they meant to say alloy seatstay, not chainstay? I would have thought the 'swingarm' and chainstay was the same thing.

 It’s a mistype. Chain stays are carbon, seat stays are alloy.

 @brianpark: V1 gnarvana was a full alloy rear end. The V2 they tweaked the seat stay a bit to add some progression (from what I’ve heard) and then made the chain stay carbon.

 @davemays: Im not 100% sure but these chainstays are really beefy. Like, maybe even solid in some spots, and really thick layup in others.

And because they aren’t stranded carbon, gashes don’t impact their structure like other types of Carbon.

Since the Gnarvana 2 and Trail pistol will now share the same carbon swing arm (chainstay) the statement above tells me that they didn't even re-tool the Gnarvana seat stay. I think all the did was change the hardware and spacers (went to bushings) to make the existing Gnarvana seat stays fit the carbon swing arm.
  • 2 1
 @davemays: They are ridiculously overbuilt and are protected in the areas where your chain will drop or rocks would normally hit. The Revved carbon is more like injected molded plastic and debris just deflects off of it. Also, they're powder coated so the paint doesn't crack off like other carbon frames. They really covered all the bases.

 @stubs179: Thanks for confirming Stubs. The statement doesn't exactly make it clear the seat stay is a totally new design as it only talks about the Revved swingarm. It would be interesting seeing how the old V1 seat stay compares the V2 seat stay. The Revved swingarm from the TP is already zero dish so I assumed they just needed different spacers to align SS's. Oh well!

 @dirtdiggler: ya, they talked more about the differences when they released the v2 frame. I swapped from the v1 to v2 gnarvana when it came out. I was very surprised at how much stiffer the revved chain stays are. Other than that, its about the same. I think they tweaked the progression because Yoann wanted it?
  • 1 0
 @stubs179: Can you see a difference in where the holes are located on the V2 seat stay compared to V1? Just curious. I did hear about small changes to the progression but when I asked GG directly they said it was more or less the same curve as the old one.
  • 1 0
 @dirtdiggler: No, i sold the V1 the day after i got the V2. But i would guess its moved by a millimeter or so? I believe it just has a little bit more progression. Like V1 was 21% and V2 is 23ish%? They were just going for a little more coil friendly i think?

 I do like having different options in a frame like adjustable travel and/or geometry. However, always the limiting factor is you have to buy another fork and shock to change the full travel of the bike.
  • 14 1
 Or as GG put it "a few components".
  • 5 2
 Most forks are adjustable enough via air spring change to cover their entire lineup. Lots of shocks can be internally adjusted. However, just changing fork travel and a new rear shock along with the seat stay is a ton cheaper than buying a whole new frame+components
  • 4 0
 @Keegansamonster: while that's true, i think most forks are adjustable 120-150mm and then 150-180mm

this is a rear change of 120-160mm so youre crossing a common divide where you'd need to upgrade the fork to a burlier one, think pike (120-150) to lyrik (150 up).
  • 4 0
 @blackjack88: those are the newer generation forks, yeah. The charger 2.1’s have more overlap. But it’s more about what the frames were made for. Even the pistol can take up to a 150. So with a lyrik you could easily have a pistol, smash, and gnarvana.
As for the rear, the smash, gnarvana, and mega trail can all be done on the same shock since it’s either a 230x60 or 230x65. So with both air and coil it’s easy to have one shock to fit both. You’d only have to get a new rear shock if you planned on going to the shred dog or pistol
  • 1 0
 @Keegansamonster: I have an Intense Primer that is 130/140. I can increase rear travel to 140 with different linkage, however, the rear RS Monarch needs to be .25" longer stroke and RS says it is not possible, so got to buy new shock. Also, I have a RS 140 Pike on the front, but still unsure if I can increase to 150 with new air spring shaft because the sag marks on the stanchion is only 130 and 140. I have to try to contact RS. I'd probably make the change to a 140/150 bike if I don't have to buy a new fork.

 We Are One Arrivals do the same, with fewer parts and more options. Arrivals will be 120, 152, and 170 by swapping JUST LINKS, not triangle parts. You need need to change shock stroke for travel, and fork travel as desired. CAD designed and laid, local parts, and an amazing company that prioritizes customers service and sustainability. Love the GG peeps, but WAO really nailed this idea.
  • 2 0
 Well, the WAO is a dual link design with a solid triangle so no other way really. Neither is perfect. For instance not everyone wants the same (low) stack on their enduro as their short travel trail bike.
  • 2 0
 Same amount of parts (left/right) seat stay vs 2 links and basically same price ($495 vs $475). Eventually all GG bikes will use the revvd chainstays (I think?) so you could swap between all their bikes. Plus the GG bikes have the dropouts incorporated into the seatstay so your rear center length changes with the different bikes but rear center length is subjective I suppose.

Both companies are doing it right : ) and I wish more had a similar focus on modularity, sustainability and the consumer.
  • 2 0
 Both probably suffer from the same fault of modularity at the shorter end of travel ranges - you end up with a really heavy 120mm bike.

Owning a GG Trail Pistol, I think I’d rather have a lightweight lineup that span 100-130mm rear travel, then a heavier front triangle for the longer travel bikes 140-165mm. I

 As an owner, this is probably my biggest complaint. (followed by weight and lack of internal storage). I wish the front triangle was a little more open - ala Last Tarvo or Reeb SST. The GGs have killer stand over, but remind me of DH bikes where all the space inside the front triangle is occupied by the shock.

Bottle Cage selection is crucial and many owners like Fidlock options.

 I'm 5'9 run a size 2 gnarvana. 445mm reach in long position, It's a perfect fit because of the long rear end. I also run it as a trail pistol. The reach jumps to 458-468mm I run it in the long position with a 40mm stem for 458mm reach. This feels good because the reach is longer and the rear shorter. Had I bought a size 3 I wouldn't be able to ride it as a trail pistol because the reach goes to 483-493mm.
