• I am looking to get a gravel bike and pretty new to the drop bar bike world. Never owned a road bike and have owned one other gravel bike but it was a 59 cm with a long top tube and short head tube. Felt too stretched out so I never was able to get real comfortable on it but I really enjoyed riding it.

    My budget is around 3500. I mainly ride gravel roads, fire lanes and blacktop. Not planning on riding any single track with it. I think I would rather be on my Tallboy for any real trail riding. Would like something comfortable enough to ride some 40-60 mile rides.

    Pretty much looking for a do all bike with main focus on gravel road riding.

    I am 6'1 so I am looking at a size large or 58 cm.


  • Get a bike fit done and ask the fitter to help you chose a frame that will work for your proportions and your intended use.

  • Get a Pinnacle Arkose for like £800. It'll do your 60 mile rides, no problems. Save the rest of your money for holibobs.

    Comes in 4 sizes. You can pop into evans and try it before you choose one. It has trendy tanwalls.
