July 9: We're just getting these bikes in and have to build and tune them before you can ride them. Please call ahead to make sure your size is ready to roll.
The Rove AL 650 is a perfect entry-level bike for adventures on both pavement and gravel. The wide and comfy 650b x 47mm tires make this an outstanding commuter bike, too. A 2x Shimano 8-speed drivetrain gives you plenty of gearing for hills. Hayes disc brakes provide excellent stopping power in wet or dry weather. Lots of mounting points for fenders, racks, baskets, and what have you. Lest you have any doubts about the comfort of aluminum frames, try one out with these tires.
All our bikes come with a free tuneup, 6 months of free adjustments, and discounted labor for installing accessories.
Note: Rove sizing runs big. For example, if you normally ride a 56cm road bike, you'll probably best fit a 54cm Rove. Please check the geometry chart at right or, better yet, stop by to test ride different sizes.
