Reviews

"On the whole, I think that this is a corking bike for the price, thoughtfully put together with room for some home upgrades too. Hopefully reasonably priced, yet still very capable bikes like this will be a catalyst for more riders trying out gravel riding as an entry point to cycling. Call it whatever you like, but there’s no denying that this little bike is a lot of fun."

"This is a mountain biker's gravel bike, 100%. A great all-around bike."
