Gravel Bikes


      Gravel bikes are a new flavour in the world of cycling, a bit like a CX (cyclocross) bike they’re best described as a cross between a road bike and a mountain bike although they lean more towards the road bike design and aesthetic.

      As the name implies they’re designed for service roads (or fire roads as we call them around here in Cumbria) constructed with a smooth gravel surface, this surface doesn’t need suspension so a slightly wider set of knobbly tyres will suffice which saves weight and drag resulting in a faster, lighter bike - also very popular with the Bike Packers as usually the frames are designed with a full set of mounts for panniers.
