Gravel grinder bikes are built to ride in nasty condition for long periods of time. Most cyclists have a desire to explore and gravel bikes fit that need perfectly. With wider, knobier tires, a more touring geometry, and a beefier frame than a road bike they are perfect for long expeditions or for short dirt trail rides. We stay true to our US manufacturing wherever possible for our builds unless the customer requests a custom build kit. These gravel frames are hand made from either True Temper OxPlatinum steel or 7005 aluminum for lightweight strength and long life. Look at what we offer and you'll see this may be the last gravel bike you'll ever want to buy.
