Why Cycles R+ Gravel Bike

We recently caught up with the crew from Why Cycles while at the Sedona Mountain Bike Festival. They were super cool and spent some time to go over a few details of their R+ gravel bike. We love their commitment to high quality products, sustainable practices and a clean design.

Key Features

  • Optimized for use with 700x40c tires

  • Can be ordered with the optional Lauf Grit gravel fork
  • Also optional is an internally routed 31.6mm dropper post
  • Slightly lower BB drop than similar bikes
  • Slightly longer reach, eliminating some toe-overlap
  • Wider bars and shorter stems for stability

Why titanium

"The wonder material has so many excellent ride quality attributes: 43% lighter than steel, higher strength-weight ratio than aluminum, significantly more resistant to crash-damage than carbon, and the best vibration damping properties of all three listed here."
