AB-st Gravel Bike

US$2,880.00

When the adventure starts at your front door your bike needs to be ready for anything and everything and our complete AB-st with Shimano’s GRX Drivetrain will take you through the badlands and back. With the main focus being to create our best-yet gravel mashing machine we went to painstaking lengths to make the AB-st equally viable as a multi-day bikepacking rig, mainly through the seemingly endless mounting options, extra wide tire clearance and the cushy, rake-adjustable front forks.

We’ll communicate any issues with you before moving forward with the build.
