Guerrilla Gravity, the carbon bike manufacture from Denver, CO, has turned up the heat and droped its first limited edition build – the Trail Pistol Race SL. This release truly is limited edition as they only have enough components to build 25 of these blue plaid beauties…

Guerrilla Gravity (GG) built the Trail Pistol Race SL with its lightest kit yet, shaving 3lbs off previous builds. Tipping the scale at 26.15lbs for size 2, it should hopefully cut a few seconds off your local segments… or at least make the uphills easier and the downhills more fun.

Sure, nothing stops you from building up a regular Trail Pistol with these high-end parts, but you won’t find that blue plaid anywhere else! The custom decals are found in all the usual places, only they complement the blue RockShox SID fork and SIDLuxe Ultimate shock unlike any decal they’ve offered before.

The limited-edition Trail Pistol Race SL is priced at $7,895 and available in their full size run. Shipping time may vary based on your size but is expected at least 5 weeks out.

About the Trail Pistol

At its core, the Trail Pistol Race SL is built on the same Modular Frame Platform as the rest of GG’s offerings. Meaning, all you need to turn the Trail Pistol into a Megatrail are some components and a seatstay kit. And just like their other offerings, it’s built on a Revved carbon frame that’s 300% more impact resistant than the usual carbon layup. It can be tuned to Crush Mode for added mid-stroke support or Plush mode for a softer top stroke.

Frame specifics include:

  • 65.9° Head Angle
  • 78.1° Effective Seat Angle
  • 74° Actual Seat Angle
  • 340mm BB Height
  • 426mm Chainstay Length

Other geometry details vary since your riding style and height play a role in which size and length you get. Additional geometry details can be found past the link, here.

“In lieu” or “in view”?

could have gone under 26lb just by foregoing the 35mm stem&bars, which seem like a really mismatched choice for a sid ultimate fork in the first place.

35mm bars can actually typically be built lighter than 31.8mm, because the wider diameter allows for a thinner wall thickness at the same stiffness.

well, in this case, that’s not true. that’s a heavy ass stem and a heavy ass handlebar and neither make sense on a build that’s supposed to be about “look how light we made this bike, even though it has a tank of a frame.”

the bars aren’t wide enough to neeeeeed 35mm diameter, it would seem the stem is spec’d just to have another I9 part on the bike.

all talking points considered: could have gone under 26lb just by foregoing the 35mm stem&bars, which seem like a really mismatched choice for a sid ultimate fork in the first place.

Not necessarily. Depends on if you want—or can— make your house payment. There’s a point where cost is an issue.

I doubt someone concerned about being able to make their house payment is shopping in the $8-$10k MTB bracket.
