At home in the city, but built to handle off-road adventures - the Original Gravel bike is an all-rounder that packs speed, comfort and durability into one affordable bike.
The boom in Cyclocross and Gravel racing has led innovation into a new class of machine - fast, tough and comfortable on rough roads. All characteristics for the perfect commuter bike and off-road adventurer.
The Original Gravel bike is built around a tough steel frame with carefully chosen parts to give you an affordable entry into this exciting new way to ride. Steel is a strong, flexible material that gives top performance for the money. It soaks up the bumps and gives improved flex for responsiveness and comfort on those long days in the saddle.
True to the versatile nature of this gravel grinder bike, the steel frame features all the mounts you’ll need for front and rear pannier racks and other attachments to suit the daily grind or touring adventures.
Shimano Tourney 2x7 gearing is a proven workhorse for light and reliable every-day operation. This configuration keeps it simple but gives you all the range you’ll need.
Made to get dirty, this bike features Alloy Cantilever Brakes for trusted stopping power and control in the mud. With 32C Kenda tyres on double-wall alloy rims, quick release hubs and a comfortable All-Road saddle - this bike is ready to roll.
- Durable and flexible Hi-Ten steel All-Road frame with front and rear pannier rack mounts so you can set the bike up any way you like.
- Shimano Tourney A070 front and rear derailleurs (2x7) with Shimano 7-speed freewheel (14-28t) for simple, wide-ranging operation.
- Alloy cantilever brakes for reliable stopping and control in mud and wet.
- Kenda Trax K1053 700 x 32C Tyres
- Lifetime frame warranty, 2 years warranty on parts and 12 months of free servicing to guarantee you get a great deal.
FAQ - Gravel & Cyclocross
WHAT IS A GRAVEL GRINDER?
Think of it as similar to a CX bike built for Endurance riding that is also perfect for all-conditions commuting over distance.
Gravel bikes typically run a 32-35mm wide tyre (as opposed to your standard Road bike at 23-25mm). Depending on the intended purpose of the bike, these tyres can often feature a small tread for traction in the dirt. These larger tyres help protect the rim against damage, reduces punctures, improves comfort in the saddle and they’ll also leave you less fatigued after riding along bumpy surfaces all day.
Gravel creates more rolling resistance so these bikes get a little more emphasis at the lower end of the range. Durability of moving parts is also key for Gravel bikes given the rough conditions they are made to ride in - our gearing choices reflect this consideration.
Both Gravel and CX bikes have strong frames and forks that are built tough for harsh treatment. The bikes feature clearance for the bigger tyres and any mud, and plenty of front/rear rack mounts for bikepacking, touring and fully loaded commuting.
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 or long regular commutes.
Most quality gravel bikes 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 reliable power and control translates to a safer commute.

This is the first time I’ve bought a bike as an adult (24) and this thing out performs any bike I’ve ever ridden and I would 💯 recommend to people interested in a value for money bike! Just don’t pedal really hard when trying to change gears. I had it for a year before some asshole cut my lock and stole it and that was that.
