While we never got a formal announcement directly from the company, it appears that Guerrilla Gravity is officially closed for business. Rumors had been swirling since September, but the latest (and surprising) announcement from Canfield Bikes confirms it. After ceasing operations in September, 2023, no new GG bikes will be sold.
However, if you already own a GG bike it appears you’ll have a source for replacement parts in the near term. Not only is Canfied Bikes offering replacement GG parts through their website, they’ve also hired a former GG employee to manage sales and customer service for Canfield Bikes, though Tyler’s knowledge of the GG bike brand will be an asset to those looking for replacement GG parts.
Currently, you’ll see nearly all the parts to make a complete frame listed on the Canfied Bikes website from front triangles, to chain and seat stays, rocker links, and bearing and hardware kits. Those will all be sold through Canfield Bikes while supplies last. If you order now, products are expected to begin shipping mid-December 2023.
It’s sad to see Guerrilla Gravity no longer in business, but kudos to Canfield for picking up the pieces to help existing riders.
From Canfield Bikes:
FRUITA, CO (November 17, 2023) – Canfield Bikes, a Colorado mountain bike manufacturer, today announces it will make official Guerrilla Gravity service parts inventory available to owners of GG bikes and frames. Denver-based Guerrilla Gravity ceased operations in September, 2023, leaving many customers wondering if there would be any continued support for recently purchased bikes.
“Like the rest of the mountain bike community, we were saddened by the news of GG’s departure from the industry,” said Lance Canfield, Canfield Bikes owner and designer. “I’ve enjoyed watching their innovations and contributions as they grew from a new brand to a major player over the past decade. Our sport will be a little less rad without them, but I hope we can offer a small silver lining by keeping their riders rolling a little longer.”
Canfield will offer the remaining Guerrilla Gravity inventory of frame and service parts as well as select merchandise through CanfieldBikes.com while supplies last. No new GG bikes will be sold.
“I’m glad our customers will be in good hands with a fellow Colorado bike company,” said Guerrilla Gravity president and co-founder Will Montague. “Creating and growing GG alongside our amazing team has been the experience of a lifetime. I’m eternally grateful to all the riders, employees and everyone else who supported us along the way. Having a great group like Canfield on board to provide riders with continued support provides peace of mind as we conclude our journey.”
Tyler, a former GG employee, joined the Canfield Bikes team in September to manage sales and customer service. In addition to assisting Canfield customers, his product knowledge will help guarantee that GG customers continue to receive the level of care and customer service they’ve come to know and expect.
“We couldn’t do this without him,” said Lance Canfield.
Guerrilla Gravity customers can contact RideGG@CanfieldBikes.com for service and support.
Select GG inventory is available for purchase now at CanfieldBikes.com with an estimated mid-December ship date.
More parts are expected to be available soon.
