About Grava Bike Company
Whether you call them gravel grinders, cyclocross or any road bikes, we design and build bikes to be used for whatever riding style and situation you choose to venture into. The idea is simple - why buy multiple bikes for multiple disciplines when you could buy one bike that handles them all perfectly?
About the Maple Sally carbon road/gravel/cyclocross frameset
The origin story for most companies is a garage. Grava's birthplace is a dirt road - Maple Sally Rd. to be specific. As we rode this sinuous, punchy, roller coaster of dirt that winds through the Wilson Creek Gorge, we talked about starting a bike company that built bikes designed for ALL of the ways we ride. Our goal with the Maple Sally is to distill a dirt road worthy race bike down to its essence.
We start with a lightweight carbon frame (1090 g for size medium) built to balance the stiffness needed to get power from the pedal to the wheel and combine it with the compliance needed to make sure the rider doesn't have to endure the terrain AND the bike. Our custom tuned carbon layup maximizes the best of both worlds.
