    Guss

    Nope, just the same older Easton alloy frame for 26" wheels ( before the SISS came out ) it uses an ENO hub and ENO freewheel. Suggested retail is about $ 1,200. But from the catalog pics, it looks like its disc only (sweet!) G is for goldenrod.
    that rug really tied the room together.

    Eno ?

    Forgive me for the stupid question but. Why does this bike need a ENO hub when it has horizontal dropouts? Is there a eno hub that is not ecentric? Or is it just to add adjustability to help alignment with the disks?

    Eno

    There are two ENO hubs, the eccentric, and the regular. I'd assume the GUSS uses the latter.

    Gene-o.U.S.S.?

    Appears to me that the "G" in G.U.S.S. comes from
    "some whiney racer-type named Gene-o"

    Makes more sense to me now than goldenrod.

    Text from http://www.bianchiusa.com/593.html :

    "G.U.S.S. joins S.A.S.S. in the long line of mutant single-speeds. Some whiney racer-types wanted a lighter frame and suspension and who are we to question their manliness. So G.U.S.S. got all the cool, expensive stuff like an Easton frame and a RockShox Reba Team fork and the ultra bling White ENO rear hub and ENO single-speed freewheel. G.U.S.S. is light and fast and you can count on attracting the wrong crowd if you leave this thing parked outside a bar. This means you, Gene-o."
