Gravel in New England
It all started with touring cyclists riding low-trafficked "B-roads" in Central and Western Massachusetts. Somewhere along the way, cyclocross racers started putting together day-long adventures that knitted together on- and off-road routes. The next thing you know, there's a whole new category of bikes designed to ride on just about any surface, from rutted gravel to broken tarmac to singletrack and light mountain bike trails. Here at Wheelworks, we carry a variety of gravel bikes from All-City, Bianchi, BMC, Cannondale, Juliana, Masi, Pinarello, Santa Cruz, and Specialized. Check out all the options below!
Road Speed With Off-Road Capability
Gravel bikes have a snappy-yet-stable character that mixes cyclocross and road geometries. A relaxed riding position, longer chainstays, and larger tire clearance all contribute to a smoother, more comfortable ride.
Built For The Long Haul
To accommodate your needs on rambling rides, many gravel bikes include various mounts to attach feed bags, additional water cages, or lightweight bikepacking gear.
New frame designs allow for easier wheelset swaps. Run your lightweight 700x25 set for spirited road rides, then switch to an off-road set for weekend getaways. It’s a savvy way to enjoy both riding styles with just one bike.

Where The Rubber Beats The Road
Ample rubber with tread patterns designed for riding fast on loose surfaces help you get the most from your gravel bike. This is one more detail that brings together road bike speed with off-road handling. Float over corrugated road, potholes, and other deteriorating surfaces that would otherwise beat you up while maintaining speed on smooth surfaces. The result is increased endurance and overall speed no matter where you ride.
