JOIN THE GRAVEL BRIGADE THIS FALL!

Riding your bike on remote roads in Boone County, Brown County, Jackson County or ANYWHERE is a special treat in autumn. No cars, remote homesteads, crops and farm equipment, sunsets, wooded hills & hollows — and the confidence to take on with your bike any road or path surface.

Nearby Boone County has the 2nd most miles of gravel roads of any Indiana county. We lose a couple of miles per year as it gets paved, but these farm roads are both gritty and glorious.

Why not sample the gravel and join us for Team Nebo Ridge’s Sturgeon Moon Gravel Ride & BBQ on August 25? This moonlight fundraising ride for Midtown Mental Health ($20 registration) will start at the new Moontown Brewing Co. in old Whitestown.

Nebo Ridge Bicycles has the best selection of gravel and cyclocross bikes in Indiana. You can start with the Salsa all-road or gravel line-up including the all-purpose steel Vaya, the category-leading carbon Warbird shown above during the May Gravel Cross-Michigan race/ride, the budget-priced  Salsa Journeyman, or the carbon Salsa Cutthroat for your Rocky Mountain adventure.

We also are one of Cannondale’s biggest dealers — and Cannondale has developed some fantastic bikes for gravel riding. Our favorites are the SuperX Special Edition, which is the beautiful and simple bike and pictured below. It was the first bike across the men’s and women’s finish line in the recent edition of the Dirty Kanza 200 — and is as capable on the fast group ride as it is on the hilly gravel roads of Kansas.  AND . . . Cannondale is about to launch a versatile and budget-friendly all-roads bike called the Topstone. Keep your radar up for this one! We will be one of the first to stock it.

 


NEW: THE LAUF TRUE GRIT (from Iceland)

The new Lauf True Grit gravel racer (Lauf is out of Iceland) is a versatile gravel and endurance race horse, with nerves of carbon. Blast through gravel, sweep the singletracks, float on asphalt or open a beer. Fitted with the Lauf Grit SL gravel suspension fork and beefy gravel tires – just ride! This bike is receiving rave reviews touting the PERFECT application of the Lauf Grit SL no-maintenance fork technology. The 1100 g carbon frameset is long and low out front, nice ‘n racy — and perfect for stable, fast, rides on gravel roads — or roads of any sort. We have two SRAM-equipped versions (or a frameset) — starting from $3695.

The Lauf Grit SL fork retails for $790 and comes with a 5-year warranty, and it is maintenance and adjustment free. The fork gobbles up and smooths-out the high-frequency, small and sharp bumps created by our fresh Indiana farm gravel. You keep pedaling smoothly and putting down the power! Not convinced on the fork? Check out this review of the Grit SL.

 

 

 


GARMIN ANNOUNCES NEW EDGE 1030 GPS COMPUTER and VECTOR 3/3S POWER METER

Ride longer and faster while staying connected with the Edge 1030 GPS Cycling Computer. In addition to a bigger screen and an unheard of battery life of 20 hrs (or over 40 with extra Garmin Power Pack add-on), the Garmin 1030 features new fast and reliable routing capabilities, more on-board maps and navigation, and better connectivity for rider-to-rider messaging and use of Strava and other social platforms. The 1030 starts at just $599.

Garmin has also just announced the new Vector 3 and 3S pedal-based power meter. Compared to the Vector 2, the new model is slimmer, easier to install (no pods), more accurate (1% vs 2% variance), and still comes with either the “single” or double-pedaled version with options to later upgrade. The Vector integrates simply and seamlessly with the entire range of Garmin cycling computers (Edge 520 on up). The Vector 3S is priced at $599.


THE CANNONDALE SUPER X — For Cyclocross or Gravel Racers Everywhere

This is one beautiful bike from Cannondale — the Carbon Super X — capable of international podium finishes on the UCI Cyclocross race circuit, racing the Sun in the Dirty Kanza 200 gravel road race, or killing it (comfortably) on a Midwest century “all- road” ride. Cannondale has taken a new “out-front” geometry for stability and comfort, combined with shortest-in-class chain stays, and created  a beautifully crafted sub-1000g. carbon frame. This bike is designed to take up to 42 mm wide tires (which comes in handy on Indiana plush gravel roads). The SRAM Force equipped  SE or Special Edition version with a single chain-ring is our favorite — simple and with clean, mud-shedding frame contours — and special WTB wheels and tires perfect for Hoosier gravel. Heck, this bike can be your one bike for all — road (with skinny 28 mm tires), cyclocross, and gravel!
