Want to know what the best component, gearing and cockpit setup is for your gravel bike? Shimano is taking the opportunity to answer all your gravel related bike, component, clothing, and gear questions later this week! If you haven’t done so already, submit your question through the form at the bottom of this post.
Easily one of the biggest cycling buzzwords of the past few years, ‘gravel’ covers a lot of ground. The term spans everything from race-ready bikes meant to cover 200 miles of rough gravel in the middle of Kansas, to bikes that are more capable than early XC mountain bikes. Because of that, there are a lot of new components specifically tailored to gravel riding, with a lot of different build options. How do you know what’s right for you?
That is precisely why Shimano has stepped up for the next AASQ installment. They want to answer your questions about gravel. That covers anything from their new GRX component group, gearing, gravel ergonomics, brake set up, dropper posts, bags, even clothing, footwear, handlebars, and handlebar tape to help with the comfort aspect of gravel riding. There is a lot to cover, and Shimano is ready to answer just about anything.
So, if you’ve got a question about gravel (stupid or otherwise), submit your questions through this form, and we’ll round them up with the answers soon!
