SALSA JOURNEYMAN — YOUR TICKET TO ADVENTURE

Salsa has just released, and we have in stock, its all-new Salsa Journeyman road/gravel bike. The Journeyman is equipped with drop bars, fender & rack mounts galore, and comes in either “conventional” 700c wheel or 27.5 in wheel size. The slightly smaller 27.5 wheel comes with a 2.0 in MTB-width tires, while the 700c wheel is ready to go on the gravel and hardpack with 37 mm tires. Priced at $1099, this aluminum all-rounder bike with Sora drivetrain and a carbon fork will be your ticket to riding and even racing endurance gravel rides. Or just pack it up and take your next bikepacking trip in the Hoosier National Forest. There are also flat bar options, and an option (for only $899) for a model featuring a Shimano Claris drivetrain.

 


 

THE ALL-NEW 2018 CARBON SYNAPSE IS HERE!

Cannondale has further improved for 2018 its best-selling endurance road bicycle — the Carbon Synapse. As fast and capable on the flats as it is tough yet comfy on the chip ‘n seal, the new Synapse has lost weight — its high-mod version is well under 1000 g. — and Cannondale has improved lines with internal cable routing making it as beautiful as a bike can be! Come in and test ride one today at Nebo Ridge Bicycles.

 


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 NEW CANNONDALE SUPER X — For Cyclocross or Gravel Racers Everywhere

This is one beautiful bike from Cannondale — the 2018 Carbon Super X — capable of international podium finishes on the UCI Cyclocross race circuit or killing it (comfortably) on a Midwest century gravel 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!
