Gravel Bikes

Are you partial to exploring the roads less traveled? Does a perfect weekend ride involve rolling down dirt and gravel roads? If the answer is yes, then you want to consider a gravel bike. Gravel bikes are designed for longer rides and generally accept wider tires than a road bike which improves traction and comfort on less-than-pristine surfaces. Gravel bikes are extremely versatile. Often cyclists will have two wheel-sets, one for gravel and the other for riding smoother, paved surfaces.

Touring Bikes

Touring bikes are specifically built to handle multiple types of terrains from smooth pavement to dusty trails.  Tour bike geometry is slightly more relaxed than a standard road bike which helps to enhance comfort during those the long hours in the saddle synonymous with travelling long distances.
