The image is for illustration purposes only and the bike is only currently available to order with Shimano GRX groupsets only. It also features upgrades that are available in BikeBuilder.
The upgrades are:
Perfect for gravel riding the CGR AL has plenty of mud and tyre clearance to be used with 650B or 700c wheels. With 3 bottle cage mounts, pannier rack and mudguard lugs and a geometry suited to off-road riding the CGR AL can be used on a wide range of surfaces and is at home on smooth road as it is on a forest bridleway.
A choice of 1x gearing systems from Shimano. Single chainrings with a wide range cassette have become the go-to choice for gravel riding due to the extra mud clearance and increased simplicity that is offered from not using a front derailleur.
650B on this build wheels offer bigger air volume in the tyres which helps absorb the rough terrain that is usually found when gravel riding. For those looking for a 700c wheelset, the option is given in BikeBuilder to change to this wheel size.
Finishing kit is a personal choice on a gravel bike with options given the the flared bars as well as a more standard road set-up. Flared bars offer increased control when descending on the drops, giving more confidence to the rider as well as having more space if handlebar bags are being used.

The bike is fantastic, pretty much all I was looking for in an all-round touring/travel bike. Super comfortable ride on the road, handles moderately rough terrain like a champ. It's light enough while still feeling sturdy, and the components are great. All in all nothing to complain about. Building/shipping was a bit slower than expected, but this is also understandable at the moment. Customer service was great - I reached out because the stem I chose was a little too long, and I had a new one in my mailbox within 2 weeks, with no charge for shipping. Really happy with the bikes, and it's been turning a few heads as I've ridden around town.
First new bike for years after a knee injury stopped me running. I absolutely love my gravel bike. It’s so light and i am really enjoying being out cycling
