  1. Hi, I am looking getting a gravel bike and have been researching the interwebs for the last month or so. There seems to be very little choice available in South Africa wrt Gravel bikes. Also, most international sites (in fact ALL international sites I have looked at!) do not seem to ship full bikes, so sourcing from oversees also do not seem like an option. Let me also say, I am looking for a Gravel bike and not a cyclocross bike as I want the slightly more relaxed geometry a gravel bike offers, and I definitely want Hydraulic discs not mechanical or anything cantilever... I am looking to

  4. The flagship Checkpoint SL 6 arrives sporting a full Shimano Ultegra drivetrain with a 50/34 compact crank and an 11-34 cassette. Stopping power comes courtesy of flat-mounted Shimano Ultegra hydraulic disc brakes paired with Shimano RT800 Ice-Tech Freeze rotors, and finned brake pads for additional cooling and stopping power. Bontrager’s Paradigm Comp Disc wheels have been fitted with tubeless-ready Schwalbe G-One 35c tyres. The Checkpoint's geometry shares some numbers with Trek's Boone cyclocross bike but with strategic tweaks to better tailor it to gravel riding. According to Tr
  5. Rondo’s aim with the Ruut is to give customers a do-it-all adventure bike. Something a performance rider will appreciate racing on gravel, riding on trails, clocking training miles on the tar, touring through the countryside, or even as the daily commuter. Rondo the brand Rondo is a new brand originating from Poland but Rondo does come to the market claiming with many years of bike industry knowledge, albeit from mountain biking. The founder of Rondo is Szymon Kobylinski. He played in a relatively famous Polish rock band and he was also a decent downhill mountain bike racer. But more importan
  6. Photo credit: Ewald Sadie What is new? The Diverge falls into the booming gravel bike category, in which drop bars, and the ability to dominate both road and dirt surfaces are de rigueur. First launched in 2014, the Diverge has seen a makeover for 2018. The most notable changes are greater tyre and mud clearance, removing the Zertz inserts from the fork and seatstay, the addition of a version of the Future Shock suspension specifically adapted for the Diverge, and adjustments in geometry towards what Specialized call their Open Road Geometry.The tyre clearance has been increased to accommodat
  7. Canyon Inflite CF SLX 9.0 Pro Race Erik Kleinhans' eye-catching Canyon was his pick from their lineup for the event. It's a cyclo-cross race bike with more aggressive geometry than the other bikes on tour, but given the generally good condition of the Klein Karoo gravel and Erik's abilities it was well suited. This top end model was suitably kitted out with Reynolds Assault LS carbon wheels, SRAM Force CX1, and a beautifully integrated handlebar and stem.

  8. Erik Kleinhans's Canyon Exceed CF SLX Erik Kleinhans arrived with what must be one of the cleanest monster cross builds we've seen. Erik has fitted drop bars to his Canyon Exceed 29er carbon hardtail mountain bike. The drivetrain is also a mix and match with a SRAM XX1 Eagle crankset with a Force derailleur and brakeset. Erik retained the RockShoc RS-1 fork but custom fitted the remote lockout to the drop bars. The wheels are DT Swiss XMC 1200 Spline with Maxxis Icon 2.2 front and Aspen 2.1 rear.

  9. Frame The Momsen R355 Gravel is a full carbon frame resembling a road bike but shaped to accommodate a variety of wheel and tyres sizes to take the bike beyond the confines of tar. The frame comes with a number of practical touches to make long distance adventures somewhat easier. There is provision for three water bottle mounts. Two inside the front triangle and one on the outside of the downtube. There are also mounts for racks and bags on the seatpost and rear axle.The R355 gravel borrows technology from the mountain bike world. The axles size comes straight out of mountain biking
