Good Evening Everyone!
I’m new to the forum. Subscribed this year for trainerroad to improve my bike.
Can I please get an advice if you have ridden any gravel/adventure bike or cyclocross bike as I’m in the market for one as I have gravel event 130km in 4 months.
I have a tri bike that I train on the indoor and a rim brake road bike.
My goal for this bike are the following:
- endurance ride
- sportive events
- road and offroad riding like parks and discover areas where less cars are involved for safety reasons
- all year around bike
I have been doing my research and looking around the forum. I also have my numbers from my bike fitter regarding stack and reach.
Im looking at the following:
- trek checkpoint alr5 or domane sl5
- norco search xr alloy or carbon
- giant revolt
- canyon grail alloy version
I just realised that having a tri bike, road bike and adding a gravel adventure bike is not ideal for me. I would rather sell my road bike and get a gravel or cyclo cross bike. I hope this make sense.
Appreciate the feedback if you own the following bikes above and your experience from roadie to gravel riding or cyclo cross to do all your riding.
Many thanks again. I live in Sydney Australia by the way so cars are not a big fan of cyclists on the road.
