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 buying process was very easy, and quick to personalize for the set up I wanted.
picking/building and delivery was quicker than expected and quoted, which was great, lucky change of delivery period didn't conflict with my availability.
i wasn't sure the freehub sounded right before riding, so sent video to online chat, was assured it should sound like that quickly.
the bike has performed as hoped for, as an off road set up. early days as not done any long rides on it yet but feels comfortable for longer days.
Went for a test ride and it was amazing. The bike rides really smooth and is a lot faster than my old hybrid bike.
It arrived securely packed and I only had to mount the pedals and the handle bar. The gears change smoothly and there was no need for me to adjust anything.
