With the emergence of multi-surface events popping up seemingly everywhere now the common question we ask our selves is what bike is correct for which event. With most of the events having a good portion of road and gravel/dirt surfaces we set out to build up a project bike that can handle all terrain.
We set our sights on the Parlee Chebacco LE as it’s built for gravel but has a Sram E-Tap drivetrain which offers a good range of gears with a 2x system up front. We swapped the wheels out for a lower profile pair of Reynolds ATR that are tubeless compatible. For tires, our terrain which we will be riding is more hard packed and dry so a pair of Mavic Ksyrium Allroad 30mm that offer a small tread pattern that can grip in the dirt, but still fast on the road.
