Best gravel bikes in Santa Rosa
These gravel bikes from top brands like BMC and Cervélo are perfect for elite gravel races and backroad explorations.
HAUL ASS, NOT CARGO A new breed of rider is emerging-one who loves the freedom and exploration that gravel culture was founded upon but who has a hunger to ride hard, to go all out, and to explore not just geography but personal limits. This frontier requires a new kind of gravel machine, one engineered not to roam the trails, but to race them. For these athletes, we engineered Aspero for pure, unapologetic speed, ready to take down finish lines, KOMs, PRs, and FKTs. A bike built without limits, for the riders looking to test them. It's stiff, Classics-racing stiff, and performs like you'd want a road bike to perform off-road. We think that makes sense, and it's what we were trying to do when we were stuffing bigger tires into our existing frames and swapping in aftermarket forks to get a 40mm tire up front. The flip-chip in the fork-we call it the Trail Mixer-keeps the trail measurement consistent whether you choose 700c or 650b tires. This maintains the bike's personality and handling characteristics when you switch from mid-fats to full-fat. There are as many different ways to do gravel as there are gravel bikes these days, but if you're toeing the start line, looking to stay with the lead group, and contend for the victory, Aspero is the bike to get you there.
The all-new Addict Gravel 30 is light, can handle rough terrain, fits chunky tires, and has enough mounts to carry all the liquids and freeze-dried chicken curry you want. What's really important, though, is what this bike allows you to do. Now, perhaps more than ever, the Addict Gravel 30 is your ticket to adventure when you need it most. Find yourself, get lost. Key Features - Addict Gravel Disc HMF Carbon Frame - Addict Gravel Disc HMF Fork - Shimano GRX RX810/600 Disc 22 Speed - Syncros RP2.0 Disc Wheels - Schwalbe G-ONE Bite Tires Comfort Features To guarantee a controlled and smooth riding experience, we increased the tire clearance to 45mm, lowered the seat stays, and came up with a carbon layering which guarantees both optimal pedaling efficiency and enough comfort when it gets rough. Mounts The new Addict Gravel comes with smart mounts for gear and accessories that make it ready for serious adventure rides. You will find a mounting option for bolt-on top-tube bags and accessories, an extra mount on the down tube for an additional bottle cage or toolbox, and two different bottle cage positions for better access when riding with a frame bag. Aero Tube Shapes Gravel and aero can also go hand in hand. SCOTT's patented airfoil design has been applied to the bike's main tubes (down tube, head tube, seat tube, seat post, seat stays) with the goal of optimizing the airflow and reducing the overall drag without any compromise on comfort and compliance. 1- or 2-By Drivetrain Perfectly compatible with 1 and 2-by drivetrains. For 1-by, the front derailleur plate can be replaced with a bike-specific chain guide or closing plate. Fender Mounts The Addict Gravel comes with well-hidden mounts for Syncros-specific fenders, making it a perfect commuter bike as well. The tire clearance with fenders is 40mm. Evo-Lap Technology With the proper selection of materials, eighty percent of the work to create a frame is done. But the remaining twenty percent requires most of our efforts. For this reason, our choice of the most advanced carbon fibers in the market is followed by intensive use of specific tools, like FEA (finite element analysis) software, to map out the carbon lay-up. With FEA software, we can simulate different forces on a virtual model of the frame and adjust the frame construction accordingly. FEA software enables us to create complete virtual prototypes incorporating all the physical phenomena that exist in real-world environments. With our Evo-Lap technology we model the frame to optimize the surface area, simulate tube structures with different ply orientations, observe the results of using different configurations, and test the stress distribution in different areas of the frame. Thanks to this extensive computer modeling, we've optimized the carbon layers in all the parts of our frame. When the parts were bonded together in the first prototypes, the result was a super light and compact frame without sacrificing the stiffness, comfort, or impact resistance. The entire range benefitted from our Evo-Lap technology.
WELCOME TO THE ERA OF SPEED IN GRAVEL. A new breed of rider is emerging—one who loves the freedom and exploration that gravel culture was founded upon but who has a hunger to ride wild, to go full bore, and to explore not just geography but personal limits. This frontier requires a new kind of gravel machine, one engineered not to roam the trails, but to slay them. For these athletes, we created a machine engineered for pure, unapologetic speed—ready to take down finish lines, KOM leaderboards, PR’s, and FKT’s. A single bike that first generates maximum speed, then controls that speed across the variable conditions gravel athletes must conquer. A machine built without limits, for the riders willing to test them. ROAD RACING INSPIRED. GRAVEL RACING REFINED. It’s time to change the paradigm of gravel bike design from hauling gear slowly to empowering athletes quickly. Leveraging vast knowledge from road racing, the Aspero frame is designed with world tour stiffness for greater pedal power transfer, using less and lighter material to aid climbing and accelerating, while maximizing speeds with aerodynamic shapes critical to efficiency at speed. The Aspero lets you choose the tire that best suits the terrain so you're always in control, with clearance for 700c x 42 or 650B x 49 combinations. Since different outside rolling diameters of various wheel and tire combinations affect the bike handling, the fork includes a "Trail Mixer" design that adjusts trail to lessen the impact on handling when swapping between most common tire sizes. - Aspero full carbon frame and fork - Shimano GRX 815 Di2 drivetrain - Reserve 32mm carbon rims / DT350 hubs - Easton EC70 carbon bars and seatpost
