Vermonters had a name for gravel grinding before it became a buzz-phrase: road riding. Vermont's scenic dirt roads are a cyclist's delight and we have several gravel-ready machines capable of cruising over Vermont's scenic mountain gaps as well as traversing her rough Class 4 and logging roads.
Renegade Exile, $799
The Renegade is ready for any adventure. The long and tall endurance geometry is designed specifically to ride comfortably all day on the road or in harsh conditions off-road. With disc brakes and the ability to mount up to a 40c tire, these bikes are ready to go just about anywhere. All you need is the desire to push, pedal and explore. Full specifications.
Salsa Vaya Series, $1,099-1,799
Vaya is Salsa’s road adventure and light touring bike, designed to handle any road surface, from pavement to gravel to dirt. The tubing selection and stable geometry across the line makes for a bike that feels great unloaded or loaded for a fast tour, soaking up unpredictable surfaces mile after mile, from one town to the next. Vaya is an extremely versatile machine, always ready and able if the path turns less than ideal. Full specifications.
Surly Straggler (650B or 700C wheels), $1,549
The Straggler is a day tripper and a weekender. It’s a ‘rough road’ road bike. It’s a cyclocross bike with no pretense about racing. It’s a utilitarian townie. It’s a light-duty touring bike. It’s an all-weather commuter. And when you get tired of one set up, you can swap parts around and turn it into something else. Full specifications: 650B, 700C.
Jamis Quest Sport, $699
The legendary ride of steel; that’s what the Quest is all about. Full specifications.
