    Looking to explore off the beaten track? Here is our Gravel Bike Top Picks.

    A Gravel bike is ideal for bike packing tours round Arran, commuting, and having the freedom to ride where ever you want.

    Firstly we have the Cervelo Aspero. The beast. Considering Mr Bilsland has chosen this as his gravel bike, it must be a weapon. The Aspero from Cervelo is all about going fast, equipped with full carbon frame and race focused geometry this is the bike you want to tackle the Dukes Weekender or Dirty Reiver. Due to the nature of this bike it does not take pannier racks or mudguards. However don’t be alarmed, it does have plenty of space for bike packing bags and water bottles (To view our range Apidura bags Click Here). The Aspero is most popular in two built kits, the ‘entry’ level model equipped with Sram Apex 1, Alex Rims 700c wheels and Mr Bilsland’s choice of model is equipped with Shimano GRX, Easton 650c wheels and dropper seat post. Both these models have built in flip chip technology allowing you to change the geometry of the bike depending on what kind of riding you’re planning on doing that day and/or if you are running either 650c or 700c wheels. The Apex 1 model is coming in at £2699 and the GRX model is coming in at £3699. The Cervelo Aspero is available in sixes 48cm through to 61cm.

    Secondly we have the bikes we use in our hire fleet, the Cannondale Topstone Aluminium 105. Here at the shop we love the Topstone so much that we have a blog dedicated to its full 2020 range, To View the 2020 Topstone Range Guide Click Here. This bike is more of a traditional set up with all the mounts for mudguards pannier racks water bottles etc. The Topstone 105 is equipped with 700c wheels (but can also fit 650c), hydraulic disc brakes to aid sopping in even the worst of conditions and 2x11 shift kit to offer a variety of gears to ensure that no hill is too much even while fully laden. This bike is available in a men’s and women’s option making the bike more comfortable for everyone on those long days in the saddle. The Topstone 105 men’s is available in sizes extra-small through to extra-large and the women’s model is available in sizes extra-small through to medium. Both models are coming in at £1499.

Equipped with lightweight aluminium frame, shimano gearing and disc brakes this bike has all the ingredients to be an exceptional gravel machine. The CDA from genesis has been built on the same technologies as their popular CDF range with the main difference being the Aluminium frame as opposed to steel.

Both the CDA 10 and 20 from Genesis are available in sizes extra-small through to extra-large. The CDA 10 is coming in at £599 and the CDA 20 is coming in at £699.

    Here is another one of our favourites at the shop, the Whyte Glencoe. The mountain bikers road bike.

The Glencoe is available in sizes 50cm through to 58cm and is coming in at £1299.
