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.

FAQs

How much tire clearance does the frame have?

The Gravel Grinder will clear 700x40mm tires with fenders installed, or 700x45mm without fenders. Many 650b tires up to 50mm work.

What braze-ons do the frames come with?

Each Gravel Grinder has rack and fender mounts, as well as full length housing zip tie guides. There are three water bottle mounts.

Is the frame belt drive compatible?

Sadly, no. However, our similar All-Road frame can be built with belt drive couplings.
