Lex’s Gravel Road Bike….. updated with the re-released Red22 hydraulic road disc brakes. A quick test ride down some steep hills had the brakes bedded-in and showed the edge these brakes have. Very powerful and positive.

With a 2 x 11 drivetrain and a through-axle front end to minimise fork twist under hard front braking. Travel couplers let this bike shrink for travel. Designed for both paved and gravel roads, this bike could equally be described as a Randonneur.

Built up with a SRAM Red22 hydraulic drivetrain, Chris King R45 rear disc hub, front Mtn thru-axle disc hub, Whiskey Cyclocross disc fork with tapered steerer, 44mm headset. The 32 tooth cassette/Red 22 WiFli derailleur setup will see this bike tackling the steepest climbs. Fitted with Rotor cranks and bearings to enable it to accept Powermeter cranks, swapped between bikes.
