With several new gravel road bikes debuting this past week, that category is coming into its own and even starting to see some diversification within it. We also saw a wood road bike and perhaps the most insane lightweight build ever, resulting in an 11.1lb mountain bike that goes so far beyond the standard hacks it’s simply got to be seen. There were also some new bags and clothes, new gadgets to simplify dropper post handling, and (as usual) so much more!
