Gravel is the new asphalt. With more and more off-road adventures taking place, it’s easy to see why the Gravel Metric‘s newest video is going to encourage a little dust on some frames. Just yesterday I was talking to a guy at IF about how stoked he was on his new Factory Lightweight Cross. Shorter chainstays and a road geometry gave him the feel of a road bike but the options to go offroad. Pretty rad!
