New year, new gravel bike?
We sure think so.
Gravel bikes are here to stay. From wide open tarmac to technical singletrack, the modern gravel bike is the ultimate Swiss army tool for the adventurous cyclist.
As the category has matured, we’ve definitely noticed somewhat of a great divide begin to open. On one hand, we have go-fast gravel race machines that wouldn’t look out of place at the start line of top road races like the Giro. On the other hand, we have seen a crop of “gravel explorers” or “bike-packing” bikes. The former are solely focused on gaining every ounce of competitive advantage over the competition, while the latter are focused on efficiency and comfort, kilometre after kilometre.
we’ve got stock of some great gravel bikes for this upcoming exploration and race season. If there’s anything we don’t have, we can special order, or better yet, custom build something for you.
If 2023 is your year of gravel races, check out these super slick, fast gravel bikes:
Or, if 2023 is your year of exploring far and wide, check these out:
If a custom build is more your style,
we’ll get along quite well.
Options for custom build are primarily from Rodeo Labs with their Flaanimal 5.0 as the superior steel or titanium gravel bike. Or consider the Trail Donkey 4.0 for a light, carbon metre (cause we’re metric) muncher. New for 2023 is a ground-up redesign of the Trail Donkey, making the 4.0 the best yet.
Other frame options we provide for custom builds are Cannondale Supersix EVO SE framesets.
