I’ve recently decided that I’d like to try some gravel grinders and maybe a CX race or two. Given that this is something I’m not sure I’ll enjoy cheap is key. Looking around online there are quite a few low budget options out there.
Obviously there’s bikesdirect with choices from Motobecane, Fuji & Gravity. I’ve also run across options from:
The Diamondback Haanjo looks like a pretty solid choice as does the Salsa Journeyman.
Definitely not ruling out used bikes either as I’m more than capable of repairing pretty much anything on a bike.
Does anyone have any experience with any of these cheaper brands?
