Straggler is a bikepacking-inspired road/gravel bike mostly at home on pavement but ready for trail duty when called. Born on Gravel. Raised on Pavement Straggler is tuned for cross-over exploration on a wide variety of terrain conditions. It's a day-tripper and a weekender. It's a "rough road" road bike, a cyclocross bike with no pretense about racing, a utilitarian townie, a light-duty touring bike and an all-weather commuter. It's a steel gravel bicycle that thrives on the road. Think of it as a "mountain biker's road bike." If you only have room for one bike in your life, Straggler can (and should) be your one and only. Straggler's capabilities go well beyond asphalt. It also lends itself well to light touring setups. We're talking frame bags, seat bags, and "credit card touring" rather than full-blown touring. Straggler also handles our 8- and 24-Pack Racks well, so you have some heavier-duty loading options. - Accommodations for racks and fenders - Forward-exiting horizontal dropouts for singlespeed compatibility and wheelbase adjustability - Clearance for 700c x 41mm tires with fenders!

What it's built for Shaving off seconds, making quick decisions, serious mud clearance. Highlights - Lightweight, durable carbon frameset with ample tire clearance - SRAM Force 1 11-speed drivetrain / Lightweight Cannondale One crank - SRAM Force 1 hydraulic disc brakes / HollowGram KNØT carbon seatpost
Flat Out. That's how Aspero debuted under the characters of the Wednesday Night Rough Club two years ago, and that's how it's stayed. And because at Cervelo we know that flat out doesn't stay flat out for long without a little help from science, we've come back from the drawing board with a new Aspero. A faster Aspero, a lighter Aspero, and—dare we say it—an even better-looking Aspero. Our engineers like to say, "If it looks fast, it probably is"—but there's some truth to it, and Aspero-5 looks fast standing still. No cables in the wind, tubes derived from our library of aerodynamically proven shapes, and just a hint of a cut out in the seat tube to squeak out just a bit more tire clearance, add up to a bike that proves the adage. Lightweight Speed Some might say aero doesn't matter on a gravel bike, but if you've battled a headwind across an open prairie, the thirty-two grams of drag you'll save with the Aspero-5 come as a welcome respite. Most gravel racing is done without the benefit of a World Tour peloton—or World Tour tactics—and when it's your nose in the wind all day, it's nice to know your bike's shouldering a bit of the load. Two-Position Adjustment "Trail", or front wheel response to rider input, is the most critical factor in high-velocity handling. The ability to adjust trail with the two-position "Trail Mixer" to compensate for the extreme range of tire sizes ensures a uniform ride experience. Multiple Configurations We engineered the bike to fit most 700x42 or 650x49 tire/wheel combos, comfortably. Of course, there are variables—rim width, tire casing/tread depth—which will affect final clearance. IMPORTANT NOTE: We always recommend there to be 4mm of clearance around whichever tire/wheel combo is installed on the bike.

Mixing design elements of traditional road and off-road frame specs, the GT-2 features Mosaic's straight gauge tubeset for comfort and compliance for a long day in the saddle. It is built on a flat mount disc brake platform for all-terrain stopping force and also creates clearance for a 45c tire. Titanium can take the abuse of riding all year, in any climate, without worry of corrosion or denting with minimal care. This base level model offers riders an opportunity to build their frame to their specification at an a la carte pricing model. Upgrades offered include fender and rack mounts, internal brake routing, routing for Di2 or EPS and upgraded finish options.

With the WI.DE., the Swiss two-man-gravel-brand presents a very powerful bike. The balanced handling, huge tire clearance, and numerous mounting points for mudguards, drinking bottles and bags make it the ideal platform. The high level of comfort and safety will appeal to gravel fans of all skill levels. This frameset could be a very solid base for your next multi-day adventure bike or sporty after-work fun-rig for technical terrain. And yes, bigger is better indeed!
We think by now, most of you get what Straggler is. It’s a madly versatile bike that can be used for most types of riding and riding surfaces. Better still is that you now have the option of 650b wheel size. 650b wheels were popular for a long time many years ago on ‘Constructeur’ style bicycles and we all know how real stuff was back in the day…650b wheels strike a nice balance between the benefits of both 26” and 700c sizes. The smaller wheel allows smaller riders to fit well on smaller frames, produces a stronger wheel, makes fitting big-ass tires easier and are more agile than their larger counterparts. Straggler has disc caliper mounts instead of rim brake studs. It’ll accept rotors up to 160mm. The rear dropouts are unique, too. They’re a partially closed horizontal design that accommodates singlespeed or geared drivetrains. They feature stop screws that thread in from the rear to further secure the wheel and to position the rear wheel for optimal shifting, plus a forward-mounted stop screw on the drive side to keep the wheel from slipping forward under the force of your gargantuan legs. The rear dropouts are spaced 135mm instead of 132.5mm like the Cross-Check simply because there are far more options for disc hubs in this spacing. Straggler 650b has braze-ons for fenders, racks and bottle cages. The geometry is slightly different, with angles and tube lengths very close but not identical to the Cross-Check, but like the Cross-Check it’s ready to take you just about anywhere. It’s a day tripper and a weekender. It’s a ‘rough road’ road bike. It’s a cyclocross bike with no pretense about racing. It’s a utilitarian townie. It’s a light-duty touring bike. It’s an all-weather commuter. And when you get tired of one set up, you can swap parts around and turn it into something else. We think that’s pretty neat.
As more riders seek adventure on back roads they are finding the need for better brakes and bigger tires increasingly evident. The first solution is disc brakes, the second is clearance for wider tires. OPEN Cycles provides both of these and more with their unique Unbeaten Path (U.P.) gravel plus frame and fork. This new brand has approached the design process from the ground up to offer something unique to the industry, a disc-equipped road bike that can be ridden with 650b knobbies or 700c cyclecross tires. Ride where the road ends, ride the unbeaten path, ride the OPEN U.P. Unbeaten Path Gravel Frameset, the world’s first gravel plus road bike. You know you need a new cyclocross bike, and a disc-equipped road bike or fat-tired drop-bar rig are on the list of needs as well. OPEN Cycles offers all of these options from one OPEN frame. Renowned bike engineer Gerard Vroomen, responsible for the Cervelo road and tri-bikes, looked closely at the fact that 27.5×2.2 (650b) mountain bike tires and 700×40 cross tires are only millimeters apart in total diameter. This being true he must be able to design a frame that would work well with either wheel size; all he had to do was invent something totally new. The result is the revolutionary OPEN U.P. frameset. U.P. stands for Unbeaten Path which is exactly where this bike can be ridden without holding back. With through-axles front and back and consistent disc-rotor sizes the U.P. frame and fork can accept numerous wheel and tire combinations. The frame geometry has the nimble feel of a road racer which also lends itself well to the cyclocross course. Riding this frame with a 700c wheelset and 37mm tires gives you the smoothest feel on rough pavement you’ll ever experience. When a 27.5 wheelset, with up to 2.1 tires is mounted, the bottom-bracket sits slightly closer to the ground but the geometry and responsive handling go unchanged. The U.P. can be used with more conventional 25mm road tires or cyclocross rubber up to 40mm wide – never before has a bike had this ability. All you have to do is decide where you will ride it next, install the appropriate wheels and tires, then let the OPEN Cycles U.P. take you there. The OPEN U.P. Unbeaten Path Gravel Frameset features a few advancements over that of its predecessor . Thanks to a new carbon layup this frame is weighing in 70 grams lighter than the old U.P. frameset. The new U-Turn fork, also featured on their U.P.P.E.R. Frameset, saves another 65 grams. The New U.P. has also been further upgraded to accept flat-mount disc brakes on the fork and rear triangle. Lastly this frame features new dedicated hardware including superlight Carbon-Ti axles to help keep the overall weight extremely low. The original U.P. will also remain available for those who prefer post-mount disc brakes.
