BIKE OF THE WEEK: OBED GVR Campy Ekar 1×13

Adventure just found another gear with the GVR.

In the pursuit of more fun with speed on dirt, gravel, and pavement, Obed sought some aero advantages without added weight. The wild spirit of gravel finds us traversing unknown backroads and trails, in the simple joy of seeking. But you don’t need to compromise speed, chasing increased performance, hunting the edge of our capability. So the Obed product design team created a bike with the nuances that performance-hungry riders want. Whether you’re on a technical, mountainous mixed-surface sojourn with friends at the Belgian Waffle Ride in San Diego, or a 200-mile race across the Kansas flatlands, on unending flint dirt roads at Unbound Gravel, the GVR offers a great platform to perform.

As always, you can choose your build. From a frame, drivetrain components, alloy or carbon wheels, tire options, choice of 650 or 700c wheel varieties (tire clearance up to 48mm on 700c wheels). The GVR has a new color-blocked range for frame, fork and graphic color choices. When you build a GVR, no two are alike, it’s built just for you.
