The Granite 1.0 is the most affordable gravel bike in our Granite series. Find your way to work each day and then get lost on the weekend, this is the perfect entry-level gravel grinder bike!

\n

Simply put, Gravel-grinders (AKA All-Road, Adventure Road or Dirt-Road-Racers) are like a Cylcocross bike built for Endurance and all-terrain riding. The features that make these bikes perfect for dirty distance racing across varied terrain also make them perfect for all-conditions commuting.

\n

The Granite 1.0 features an 6061 Hydroformed Alloy Frame and fork with front/rear rack plus extra clearance for up to 40C wide tyres. All this makes the bike not only suited for dirt road riding, but also perfect for the rigors of a daily commute (with the option of a bit of fun on the weekends thrown in). Believe the hype - gravel grinder bikes are true all-rounders.

\n

Our range of quality gravel grinder bikes also come with the industry leading Reid Lifetime frame warranty, 2 years warranty on parts and 12 months of free servicing to guarantee you get a great deal.

FAQ

\n

The bike looks great… but what exactly is a Gravel Grinder?

\n

Think of it as similar to a CX (Cylcocross) bike built for Endurance riding that is also perfect for all-conditions commuting over distance.

\n

TYRES

\n

Gravel bikes run around a 35mm wide tyre (as opposed to your standard Road bike at 23-25mm). This helps protect against punctures, improves comfort in the saddle and they’ll also leave you less fatigued after riding along bumpy surfaces all day.

\n

GEARING

\n

Gravel creates more rolling resistance so these bikes get more emphasis at the lower end of the range. For the Granite we’ve chosen the latest Shimano 14 Speed A070 gearing with a 50/34 chainset and 12-32 cassette for solid all round performance.

\n

FRAME

\n

Both Gravel bikes and CX are built tough for harsh treatment, and feature clearance for the bigger tyres and front/rear rack mounts for bike trekking and loaded commuting.

\n

Although similar to Cyclocross bikes, Gravel-grinders feature more relaxed geometry with a slacker head tube angle, a lower centre of gravity and longer tube lengths for a more comfortable ride over longer distances. Cyclocross bikes are designed to accelerate fast and corner quickly at lower speeds, but this can feel a bit ‘twitchy’ on endurance rides along wide open gravel roads.

\n

If you’re looking for the ultimate commuting bike, the question you need to ask yourself is: Do I punch out lots of straight miles or do I ride shorter trips fast while dodging lots of traffic..? If the former, you’re in the right place. If the latter, check out our CX.

\n

BRAKES

\n

Most quality gravel-grinders feature disc brakes as they perform better in all conditions. If you’ve ever ridden to work in the wet, you’ll understand how this translates to a safer commute.
