Just to the south of us here in St. Paul, there lies a vast land of gravel roads. 68,000 miles of virtually car free riding nirvana known to the wider world as Iowa. Having spent many years wandering along these paths and highways, we finally decided to design a bike that we felt would do these roads justice. Our new Framed Gravier Carbon features a lower bottom bracket to enhance stability in loose corners, and a longer wheelbase to help keep you comfortable and in control over the long haul. We built it tough to handle abuse, but added enough forgiveness to allow you to get up and ride again the next day.
