Quick reminder that SRAM is on tap for this week’s AASQ! It’s time to get in your questions now, and we’ll be back with the answers at the end of the week.
One of the fastest growing segments of the bike market in terms of sales, there’s no question that gravel bikes are hot. Offering a way to combine the fitness aspects of road bikes with the adventurous nature of mountain bikes, gravel bikes often hit the sweet spot between efficiency and capability. But just like with any other new-ish cycling discipline, new territory can mean new questions in terms of equipment – like gearing.
Of course, riding bikes on gravel is nothing new. Riders have been doing just that for centuries. The difference is that now there are bicycles specifically made for the task, which should make things more enjoyable. But even within the gravel segment, there are different approaches. Are you looking for a bike that is more capable, even if that means it’s a bit slower? Or are you looking for a bike to set your PR on the next 200 mile gravel race? Depending on your goals, those could be two very different bikes.
Which brings us to our next AASQ installment. After recently announcing their Force AXS wide range gearing option, SRAM has a number of gearing options for gravel – both eTap and standard. So, if you have questions about how to set up your next gravel drivetrain, which components play nice with other, or just general gearing questions as they relate to gravel, this is your chance. As usual, we’ll round up the best questions and send them over to SRAM for the answers and we’ll report back next week!
