Kyle's Super Something flat bar gravel bike
Kyle is a Bozeman local. He rides mountain bikes and is a serious commuter but wanted something to explore all the awesome gravel roads and chill trails that Bozeman has to offer. What we came up with was a nice budget-friendly flat bar build on our Super Something gravel frameset. This steel frame and fork, while designed around a drop bar is also a lot of fun to ride with a flat bar, which some people prefer for more control or just because they like that riding position.
We went with an 11 speed drivetrain and our favorite outback wheelset from Astral and White Industries. The 47c Terravail cannonballs are a nice fast rolling gravel tire that also hold traction really well when you get them onto a trail, really the perfect tire for this flat bar setup in my opinion. Of course we have the canti levers from Paul Component and one of our new Titanium Seatposts for unparalleled comfort with a Brooks B-17 on top.
All in all this is a great build for getting out and around and we are excited to see the places that Kyle takes it.
