This bike was my initiation into trail riding / gravel riding and it’s been such an awesome experience. I understand it’s not the top of the line, but to me, it really feels like it. I can follow my friends up steep uneven terrain, cruise on gravel or dirt paths with ease, and charge up pavement. I would 100% recommend the 700 just so you can switch out the 37mm for the 40mm also. Great option for hitting up mountain trails. All in all, perfect bike for getting into the off-road experience.
