Ti Gravel Grinder

Versatile U.S. Made Road/CX Frame

Bikes of all types continue to evolve, and we are happy to see road bikes going down a rougher road. The new Gravel Grinder frame is both our first production road-style frame, and the first frame we offer that is manufactured in the USA. Our pals at Lynskey in Tennessee built this beautiful frame to our specifications, and we’re excited to see where it will take us!

This frame is designed to be a catch-all for all things road-like. Touring, cyclocross, endurance, and anything in between is fair game. With wide tire clearance, you can go with a traditional tire or stick on a pair of 40s for the rougher roads.

Sliding dropouts in the rear will accommodate any Paragon Machine Works sliding insert, and make going single-speed or IGH a breeze. Rack and fender mounts are pre-fitted for your touring needs. And of course a tapered head tube will accommodate any fork.

Despite the higher costs of domestic production, we are determined to keep our frame offerings at $1399,95, so you’ll see this fair price point on the Gravel Grinder as well.
