Autumn Gravel and Cyclocross
With the autumn, our bike riding relaxes, spreads out, and gets exponentially more fun. Why not explore new roads, enter new events, or try a different riding discipline this month? Our event calendar for this time of year is busting at the seams and includes a number of cyclocross and gravel events and rides.
Here at Nebo Ridge Bicycles, we can help you get further and see more. We are experts in and stocked with a well-chosen selection of new 2017 all-road, gravel, and cyclocross bikes from Cannondale and Salsa Cycles. For example, Cannondale has totally revamped its 2017 CAAD-X and SuperX cyclocross bikes. Their new out-front geometry makes them fit better, more nimble for precision steering, and more stable and comfortable on long stretches or descents. In fact, they are also now great gravel road endurance bikes and commuting bikes in addition to being the pro’s choice for cyclocross racing.
We also represent and stock the premier line of gravel bikes made by Salsa Cycles. Choose the steel Salsa Vaya for your next all-road adventure (starting at $1100) or the racier aluminum or carbon Salsa Warbird for your gravel endurance events. The Warbird features Salsa’s leading-edge design — making this bike the gravel grinder’s favorite performance bike.
