John’s Gravel

John Braynard

This bike does fucking everything. I ride like a god damn madman and my Oleka takes it like a champ. From racing up climbs in Mallorca to riding across gravel passes in Norway – it does it all. The bike is subtle yet a beast at the same time. I love it.

JOHN'S GRAVEL.

John is one of those cyclists that doesn’t fits any category. He likes absolutely everything related to riding and is not afraid of any terrain, having recently developed a tremendous passion for those covered in sand, rocks or mud.

When we started talking about his bike, the concept of it was obvious: An all-terrain with which he could fearless adventure in any route, trip or just the day to day of his life in Salzburg. He wanted to keep a simple, sober and clean aesthetic.

We opted for a combination of Columbus Zone and Life tubing, the recommended ones for off-road use. The geometry had to properly work both on and off the road, so we kept a relatively low bottom bracket height (but higher than on the road) and a slightly slacker head tube angle. A high head tube ensures a comfortable position and a balanced weight distribution that prevents understeer in technical descents. The wiring is internal through the down tube and external in the chain stays. A slightly larger than necessary size will allow the bike to pack stuff inside the front triangle for a trip.

The specifications of the bike fell relied on SRAM, who collaborated in the project by providing ZIPP 303 Tubeless wheels, a SRAM FORCE CX1 groupset with disc brakes and, finally, ZIPP finishing kit.

The paint jobe, done by KilianBoy, represents a killer design by Philipp Doms that inspires speed through the fork thanks to its effects in red.

It is just the example of a bike that perfectly meets the needs and way of having fun of its owner.
