If you’re looking for a modern gravel bike that’s ready for adventures with all the mounts, 700×50 tire clearance, and dropper post compatibility, the new Polygon Bend is it. And it starts at just $1,499 for a complete bike.

The Bend’s alloy frame starts with a sloping top tube that provides great standover clearance and keeps the weight low when it’s loaded down. And it’s easy to load, with hard mounting points for frame bags under the top tube, plus more mounts on the top side.

There’s also two bottle cages inside the front triangle and another underneath. The carbon fork adds three “anything cage” mounts plus rack and fender attachment points.

In the back are rack mounts for packing more. Those sit atop dropped seatstays, which bend and flatten to add a bit of compliance.

Yep slack tall stack and short cranks for size.

Looks like a mtb company built a gravel bike
