Journeyer Claris 700c makes it easy to get into gravel. We designed its all-new aluminum frame and Fantail aluminum fork around comfortable geometry and versatile features. The fender, rack, accessory, and Three-Pack mounts let you outfit it just the way you want. Gravel riding on a hot day? Load up with extra water. Commuting? Add a rack and fenders and keep your eyes open for fun side roads and paths. Going bikepacking? Our Anything Cages hold your gear in under-utilized space for a minimal setup. The 700c x 38 mm wheel and tire package rolls quickly and smoothly on pavement, but with enough traction for loose dirt and gravel. Shimano’s Claris 2 x 8-speed drivetrain grants you the gear range to take on uphill grinds or take advantage of tailwinds. All of these features come together in an affordable package that might make it the best beginner gravel bike out there.
