The Pro’s Closet, The Radavist & Mosaic team up for GT2-X Special Edition Gravel Bike

Suppose you love shreddy titanium hardtails, cool landscape photos, and old Toyota Landcruiser colors. In that case, you probably already know about the collaboration between The Pro’s Closet, The Radavist, and Mosaic Bikes.

No? Ok, then read on!

The three have combined forces and their collective creative juices to develop the Mosaic GT2-X Radavist Special Edition Gravel Bike, but only 8 of these were built, so ya better go get ’em while they last.

But if you miss out on this steed, don’t worry the Mosaic GT-X is another great titanium bike that we covered last summer.

OK, on to the Mosaic/ Radavist colab!

Out of the 8 bikes that are available, there are four that John took out with four of his friends on a Grand Canyon overnighter. Those four bikes are being sold as certified pre-owned bikes through The Pro’s Closet and are the only ones that come with the beautiful Rogue Panda Frame bag you see in the picture above.

Rippin’

John says that the bike’s geo is said to be reminiscent of a ’90s XC bike. It has frame clearance for a 2.2 tire. It’s got a pretty amazing build list. It is also stated that the 58cm bike weighs in at an impressive 22lbs! It’s running titanium bars, seat post, and frame with a steel fork… I don’t think it’s a reach for me to say that this bike would be really comfy to ride.

A Surly Straggler or Midnight Special would be roughly 1/6th the cost….

Sure, but those also aren’t titanium or made in the USA by a really excellent frame builder. That’s like saying a Toyota is less expensive than a Ferrari, they’re both cars sure but completely different animals.

But twice the weight and half as comfy.

LOL, the cycling world really does loose track of reality at times.
This bike is ‘reminiscent of a ’90s XC bike’ and you rave about it being ‘an impressive 22lbs!’.

How is that such a big deal?

My ’94 mtb actually IS a ’90s XC bike, and it weighs the same.
It really isn’t that impressive for a rigid bike. I guess it just seems impressive nowadays, because modern bikes are so big, complicated and heavy.

I would like for journalists and editors to not just take everything that is in the press release or on the brand’s website at face value, but look at older bikes and developments to see if it really is as special as they claim.

And then that ‘certified pre-owned’, man, that’s some dumb nonsense. You they made the bikes, have some people no one has heard of take them for a long trip for free, and then sell the bikes at a premium, as if that whole ordeal somehow made those bikes more special.
‘Hey your new bike has some scratches’
‘No no, those are not just scratches! That’s because the seller first took them on a long trip and those are the visual reminders of that very special occasion. I was lucky enough to be one of only 8 people to be allowed to buy one!!’

Does your 94′ mtb have 29″ wheels with clearance for 2.2″ tires? Does it have hydraulic disc brakes? How about the tubeset… does it have a 44mm headtube with a tapered steer tube fork?

It is a tired argument that modern gravel bikes are the same as 90’s mountain bikes. I have both and they are very different.

I agree with you, this is way better than 90’s MTB, but what makes it a gravel bike? I love the bike, dont get me wrong, but with flat bars, mtb wheels, mtb drivetrain… It is rigid mountain bike.

Nope, it doesn’t, and never did I suggest it does.
I was just pointing out that 22lbs is in no way ‘impressive’ for a rigid mtb/gravelbike.
Also, I have been riding this very bike since I bought it in ’94. In that 28 years it has been heavily used, and under all kind of circumstances. I rode it in the mountains before mtb trails even existed, I use it as my daily bike for everything, it is in use now as a courier bike for work and also my go to bike for fun rides (gravel routes, mtb trails, bikepacking, pump tracks, everything). I’m doing perfectly fine with my 26″ wheels (fast acceleration, agile and very strong) and my cyclocross canti’s, and my 1 1/8″ headtub, and I will be riding this bike until my body doesn’t allow me to ride anymore. Now let’s just wait and see if any of these 8 bikes is still around in 2050…

I could build a old specialized stumpy for $300 easy . This is a joke!

If I had to pick one bike to own/ride for the test of my life it would probably look a lot like this but with mounts for rack/fenders as required! That or a GT-1 45.

The only place this is more fun than a less expensive, lighter, faster and more versatile carbon mountainbike is on a bike path headed to a coffee shop or investment banker meeting. A sub 22lb mountainbike would be closer to $6.5k and would do everything better. This is coming from a gravel bike rider and believer. Beautiful bike, but it is a $9000 hybrid and will be used a such.
