What’s your ideal gravel bike build? That probably depends on how you view gravel bikes to begin with. More capable road bikes? More efficient mountain bikes? Regardless of your view, there’s probably a build that’s ideal for you. And if that’s a capable gravel bike that’s shipped right to your door, the new Obed Boundary MLT is worth a look.
Starting with their carbon frame, the Obed Boundary features a dropped chainstay for additional tire clearance, mounts on the top tube, fork, and downtube in addition to the standard bottle mounts, and the option for 35 different frame and graphic color combinations with bikes painted and built to order in Chattanooga, TN.
To give the Boundary a little more bite, the MLT version gains a wider, flared drop bar and shorter stem up front, and a KS Lev SI 65mm dropper post out back.
Combine that with either 700c x 45mm or 650b x 2.05″ tires on HED Emporia GA Performance Wheels, and you have a gravel bike that can tackle your favorite singletrack as well as gravel, pavement and anything in between.
Complete bikes will utilize the Shimano GRX 810 1x shifter-integrated dropper lever along with a Shimano GRX 810 1x drivetrain—all for $3,565, shipped right to your door with their Home.Delivery.Right program.
The Obed Boundary MLT joins existing Boundary builds with Shimano GRX 1x, 2x, and Campagnolo Ekar builds and more conservative tire and component spec.
