Ready to race at a great price, except...
The rear frame spacing and the stock thru-axle rear hub are 135x12mm, NOT 142mm as listed above. Just found out the hard way when I went to swap in some new tubular wheels. Otherwise like the spec and geometry. It's been great for cross and gravel.

Exactly what I was looking for...
I put together a list of components to build a 1x11 sram CX bike (good value and lots of durability) for riding with groups and commuting while minimizing maintenance and the components on Framed course Rival 1 is almost exactly what my list looked like for a bomb proof road/offroad bike with minimal was easier to buy the framed bike instead of building another one....I previously built a similar bike with cantilever brakes, but I wanted one with disc brakes, so I got the framed bike and have been quite pleased!!

Quality Bike
Best gravel bike I could find on the web for the money. It's awesome. I have a BH Ultralight road bike that I love but was looking for something more versatile - a go most anywhere do most anything bike with quality components below $1000. This is it. Comfortable ride and handles nicely. I always had Shimano group sets but I really like the Sram Rival 1 setup. The one gear up front and double tap operation is easy and smooth - I'm never left wanting a lower or higher gear. Brakes are pretty good and seem to be getting better each ride. I'm 6'3" with a 35" inseam and the 60" frame fits me perfect and is 22 lbs without pedals and reflectors. I debated about the color after seeing how good the green looked in the photo of the other reviewer but I'm glad I went with black. The only thing I was unhappy about was learning the bike build was not available for this bike though the web page clearly indicates it is. Whatever. I just took it to my terrific local bike shop and they did a great job putting it together. I would definitely buy it again. Now I just got to ride it as much as I can before winter sets in.

how wide of a tire will fit? it comes with 33 will a 35mm or 40mm wide tire fit?
Michael M on May 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi Michael,
I just spoke to the Framed peeps, and they said that a 35mm tire is the widest that you could use.
Do the hubs have loose ball bearings or sealed cartridge and what's the geo? Also can this be used for light single track as well?
hise442 on Apr 2, 2016
The Hubs on the Course Bikes are indeed sealed. The geometry of these bikes will be posted soon. Finally, you could use this bike for light single track riding, but it will have less control than a Fatbike.... it will depend on your skill level.
Is the headtube on all the sizes really 16cm?
A shopper on Sep 1, 2016
I double checked... yes... they are all 16cm.
What are the crank lengths and handlebar widths that come with the various frame sizes ?
40oz_Warrior on Jan 17, 2018
175mm crank length for the Framed Course Alloys. The bigger the frame the wider the bars that are installed to fit the riders needs

will a 650b 42mm - 47mm wide tire fit?

Are there options with stem length and handlebar width, or are they set based upon frame size?
Brian D on Oct 18, 2016
All the sizes available come with the same stem length and bar width.
Can this be set up to run tubeless?
A shopper on Aug 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: From Framed Bikes: Yes, the rims are tubeless compatible but they are not setup tubeless "ready" and the stock tires are not tubeless compatible. In order to set these up tubeless you will need 1) a tubeless conversion kit with rim strips, valves, and sealant, 2) tubeless compatible tires, 3) mechanical ability/resources to successfully setup the tubeless system.
Is there a geometry chart available for this bike?
Andrew on Jul 1, 2016
I apologize... they are just finishing it. It will be posted within the next few days. For the moment i will email you a copy.
is this a traditional road bike or an endurance style road bike?
A shopper on Jun 11, 2016
The Course is not a traditional road bike. Framed geared it toward a Gravel and Cyclocross bike. The Rodez is more of a standard road bike:
What's the difference between the rival course bikes?
A shopper on Mar 18, 2016
The componentry is the exact same. One is a 1x11 gearing and the other is a 2x11 (basically a 21 speed bike).
