Unpaved surfaces can quickly turn the wrong bike into a giant waste of money as many of the components are sub par and in some cases, dangerous as they rattle loose. Below are some of our current favorites in the segment.
A great option for new riders on a budget. The Schwinn Volare offers aluminum construction, 3 front, and 8 rear gears. Amazon has these available starting at $500.
The Cypress is a tried and true option that has a reputation for being a reliable workhorse on gravel. Aluminum construction and durable components make this a fantastic choice for riders. These bikes can be found at several local bike shops nation wide as well as on the Giant website. Pricing for the bike is $390.
