Gravel is the hottest cycling genre right now, with almost every brand offering something in the category. It’s difficult to know what the best Gravel bike for you will be, since there are so many options on the market, so we’ve put together a list of frequently asked questions to assist you in determining which bikes are right for you.

FAQs

Can I use my road bike on Gravel?
Most people would agree that once the trail starts to feature rocks then a road bike isn’t a sensible choice, from both an enjoyment and a safety standpoint.

What wheel size do I need?
650b rims have a smaller diameter than 700c, and can therefore fit a higher volume tyre within the same diameter (so the theory goes). In simple terms, a 650b rim and a larger tyre have essentially the same diameter as a 700c rim with a smaller tyre. As a rule of thumb, you’re more likely to find 700c on those bikes designed for racing, while 650b tends to feature on bikes aimed at tackling the rough stuff. There is a significant crossover, however, with some framesets able to take either.

What extras do I need?
Beyond the set menu of frame, wheels and groupset there are a host of bonus features to look for. Are you a thirsty person? Maybe an extra set of bottle bosses on the downtube will suit you. Do you want to carry absolutely everything? Rack mounts for panniers or triple bosses for high-capacity cargo cages on your fork legs will probably fit the bill.
