Searching at Gravel / Adventure Bike

Hello all, I have been busy with my job. Working 50+ hours a week on average to building my comp “vacation” time up. So I might be able to do a trip to get a gravel bike.

I am in process of getting a gravel bike within the next month or so. So this way I can ride in 4 (mud, spring, summer, and fall) of the 5 seasons of Vermont life. As some of the roads no way I want to ride my 23 road bike tires on as that would be silly. Also going to be riding the long way to work on those gravel roads.

I have a list of 6+ or so bikes.In no order, here is a list of some of bikes I am looking at:

Bianchi Allroad

Jamis Renegade

Trek Crossrip

I won’t be getting anything until March but it is great reading the reviews of the bikes.  All the bikes I would get from a LBS that I trust and know. So that is why I have a big list of bikes on here. This would be my first new bike since my entry level mtb. As my road bike I got used. I want to see how the bike feels when I am riding it.  Something I wished I did on my road bike at times but it is fun.

Thank you for reading and happy training.

  1. Like your blog. What bike did you go for in the end? I’m currently pondering the Jamis Renegade.
