The hardest part of creating the Cyclosys was deciding how much 'gravel' and how much 'trail' to mix in to its capabilities. Make it too much of a gravel racer and it loses the confidence when the road narrows and the rocks get bigger, and of course if it is designed to excel on the roughest double track and single track it will become too sedate on the mellower surfaces. The Cyclosys is a culmination of many many variations over the years, as we have played the edges of what is capable enough without being dull.
Tire clearance up to 700x45 or 650x52 allows for some pretty capable tires to be installed and with these types of bikes, tires define the ride. The Cyclosys is optimized for tires 35-45mm. Change the tires, change the personality of the bike.
Really, at the heart of the Cyclosys is a love of adventure and a desire to enjoy every ride to its fullest. Perfectly tuned for hours and hours of dirt roads or jamming through your favorite single track. The newest version of the Cyclosys cannot be defined as anything other than balanced.
Is the Cyclosys perfect for a local gravel ride / race? How about ripping the local single track that has become mundane on your full suspension mountain bike? Or you scored an entry and are heading to Kansa this year? We think so...
