Back in May, Cory expertly covered the new RATT Allroad bike by Poland’s own RONDO Bikes. After reading their latest press release about their new bike, it’s clear that RONDO Bikes wants to be the brand to change the perception of how drop-bar bikes are perceived by both roadies and mountain bikers. And with that in mind, they’re launching their new MYLC model series of gravel plus bikes today for some serious drop-bar-off-road shenanigans and to kick off the gravelduro era.

RONDO says that the new MYLC Series of bikes is the evolution of gravel bikes that perform “exponentially better on rough terrain”. Instead of pulling geometry inspiration from road bikes, they pulled their inspiration from mountain bikes. The claimed result is a completely re-thought geo that offers maximum stability and comfort even on steep, gnarly descents.

EGG (Enhanced Gravel Geometry)

The new MYLC Series uses, what RONDO claims to be, the “key” to the bike’s off-road prowess, Enhanced Gravel Geometry (EGG). RONDO says the result of EGG is a significantly longer reach and slacker head tube angle, elongating the front center (up to 682mm for a size Medium).

RONDO’s TwinTip axle

When RONDO’s TwinTip axle is set to the LO position, the head tube angle becomes 68 degrees. Change it to the Hi setting, and it becomes 68.7º. You can fit up to a 700x47c, adding comfort, stability, and traction.

Offered in either carbon, aluminum, or 4130 steel frames, there’s a Rondo MYLC for everyone – though it’s that squared headtube/fork transition that is the real attention grabber.

With the elongated front center, RONDO says that the bike “remains stable at high speeds and performs even better on gravel trails with long, sweeping curves and straight lines.”

Nothing says aero like a flat-faced headtube.

When did a gravel cyclist care about aero.

what size would you recommend for a rider 1,77cm tall but with long legs…inseam at 87cm and saddle height 75-76cm?

I normally ride a size L MTB and a 56cm top tube road bike….I see the geometries on the Rondo website were wrong for the MYLC CF-2 as they gave a shorter top tube but have now been corrected and top tube is quite long in a size M….

Rondo recommeds a size M but I would like some other opinions before I order the wrong size…
