Description: Framed Gravier Carbon Gravel Road Bike - Rival 1 And Alloy Wheels

Just to the south of us here in St. Paul, there lies a vast land of gravel roads. 68,000 miles of virtually car free riding nirvana known to the wider world as Iowa. Having spent many years wandering along these paths and highways, we finally decided to design a bike that we felt would do these roads justice. Our new Framed Gavier Carbon features a lower bottom bracket to enhance stability in loose corners, and a longer wheelbase to help keep you comfortable and in control over the long haul.

Black gray red frame. Carbon fiber rims, flatbars seatpost DB5 brakes Rival 1 44T 11-42 cassette
This bike is so much fun to ride it climbs like a road bike with the ability to run a 700x42 tire. The Rival 1 derailer shifts great and has no problem with the 11x42 rear cassette. DB5 hydraulic brakes handle the steepest descents. Single 44T chain ring saves weight but presents no problems in the hills. The bike weighs less than 19 pounds with pedals,bottle cages and stock tires w/tubes. It It is a great compromise between an all out road bike but with the ability to handle off road rides and be comfortable enough to do it day after day.

Best money I’ve ever spent on a bike!
Absolutely blown away by my Gravier 1x! I have never seen a bike packaged so well. All I had to do was open the box and put the handlebars, seat post and front wheel on. The next day I added pedals and rode 30 hard miles through cane fields and gravel roads with two very fast teammates. We really needed to be on full suspension mtb’s!! The bike is amazingly stiff, very responsive and extremely comfortable. My only regret is not getting the SRAM 22 instead of the 1x because I want to swap tires and start riding this bike on the road to give my race bike a break. The roads here in South Louisiana are HORRIBLE!I love everything about this bike except the placement of the water bottle cage mounts. They need to be closer to the B.B. IMO. I’m 5’8” with a 30.75” inseam and my 53cm fits great! I’m seriously thinking about purchasing their Liege road bike next. I highly recommend this bike to anyone thinking about purchasing a gravel bike. Especially a first timer like me.

Solid, do-it-all road and gravel bike
So you're considering it a Gravier. Is it the real deal?

I purchased the alloy wheel Gravier with Rival components and was pleasantly surprised to receive the bike with a full Rival gruppo (the website had said FSA cranks).

People love the look of this bike and mistake it for a high-end road bike, especially if you're running a narrow tire. It's classy.

I did everything from pass-hunting in the Colorado mountains to gravel riding right in my backyard.

The 700c Gravier is fast enough on road, but has the volume for gravel. If you need to get home quickly, you can take the road route. If you want to bail onto some gravel, you can do that. The weight is light enough you can do all this without suffering too much. It climbs quite well.

The seat was too narrow right off the bat and had to be swapped for something more comfortable.

Unless you're running CX on this bike, I'd also budget for new tires with higher volume. I was able to fit in the rear triangle the WTB Resolute, barely, if that helps. See pic. I don't recommend a Resolute, but it shows you the limit of the rear triangle. This was with a tube, and you can see it's not straight on the rim. Just a quick test at my buddy's house.

Steering feel is similar to a road bike, not overly quick but not touring-bike slow, either, with a 72 degree HT angle in my size (58).

The mechanical brakes are quite adequate unless you're used to hydro and can't go back to mechanical. I get that.

The frame seems overbuilt, which is good for big guys like me (200+ lbs). I trust it. It's not the lightest gravel bike, but you could definitely race on it, especially if you swapped out Rival for Force, and ran carbon wheels. Because of the high initial value of the Gravier, any of these upgrades are doable.

The wheels are also solid. With no real jumping or technical runs, I definitely banged up the rear wheel after some light-duty gravel and singletrack. Framed trued it at my free, initial tune. But that was the first time anyone had wrenched on it, so it needed a tune, anyway.

The hub is very loud. It sounds like a cicada in August and will scare forest animals. Factor that and consider the DT Swiss wheelbuild if you need something quieter. Or maybe you want to scare the forest animals? Be bear aware, friends.

The front thru-axle setup is very precise and rigid. It corners with confidence. Big, mountain-style road switchbacks are nothing for this bike.

If I could change anything about this bike, first of all, spec an actual gravel tire. Since Framed already has a relationship with Terrene, an Elwood would rule. But WTB Nanos would also be solid.

Also, although it would require a complete frame redesign, I'd like to see clearance for 45 or even 29x2.0 tires. People are pushing these bikes to the absolute limit, and the monstercross capability is attractive. People enjoy under-riding, but with a ShockTop stem (aftermarket) and 29er tires, you'd arrive at the finish line a lot less beat up. Gravel bikes are capable of more, but people will keep riding their hardtails in many gravel events with mud and other perils unless provisions are made for wider tires.

Another feature that's slowly gaining adoption in the industry are fork mounts for light bikepacking. Everyone seems to want them on a rigid fork.

Downtube armor stock is the last thing I'd want. Protect that carbon!

For this spring, I'll probably mount some Terrene Elwoods (I do enough road riding I want something less aggressive) and get rid of my non-tubeless Clement X'Plor 700x36, which suffered in real gravel, even at 40 lbs of pressure.

Carbon wheels would really make this bike fast. Buy them up front if you can afford them because they are a killer deal!

I wish more 75mm dropper posts were available. My legs are too short to fit a 100mm dropper, but I want it for the occasional light singletrack and gravel descending I do. I am 6'2" with a 32" inseam.

If you love the speed of a road bike but want the capability of a gravel bike, I'd recommend this bike with 700c. If you are, like many of Framed's customers, going to just SEND IT on every dirt descent you see, or think you might encounter real sand and mud out there, get the Baja with the 650b tires.

You won't regret it either way! The Gravier is the real deal.

Ideal uses: Gravel, bikepacking, CX, ultra-endurance, commuting, winter (40mm studded)

Choose another setup or bike: Road racing, especially super-flat landscapes where Rival 22 is needed
The Rival drivetrain has worked well for me, a non road racer.
I limped up some Colorado mountains on 28mm tires. The wide cassette range makes climbing easy.
It's a great-looking bike. The dark gray and black color scheme are awesome.
It goes just about anywhere. For more dirt versatility, consider the 650B Baja with the WTB tires.

Maximum tire size?
Timothy S on May 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: 40's fit with plenty of room, 45 MIGHT fit, but that'd be pushing it.
How wide of tire fits on the stock wheel? Frame handles 40 but, can that rim take something bigger than stock 33’s????
Derrick on Jul 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hey Derrick,
According to our Framed rep, the biggest that can fit on the Alexrims Draw 2.1p is a 40c.
Does the rival 1 crank have a 24mm or 30 mm spindle ?
Brian on May 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Brian,
The Rival crank is compatible with both the 24 and 30mm options. Framed uses the 30mm on the Gravier.
I have a set of 700x41 surly knards I'd like to throw on this wheelset, if possible. Surly recommends 23–30mm wide rims, however. Looks like these are just under the bottom threshold. How narrow is too narrow when going wide? And if these rims won't do the trick, what alternatives do you offer?
vipes on Apr 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi John,
I apologize for the delay... I wanted to speak to Framed themselves. Unfortunately the Gravier has a max tire capacity of 700x40mm. In regards to the rim and tire width, it is best to follow the recommendations of the rim or tire manufacturer.
Can I set this bike up for touring?
A shopper on Jun 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi,
Basically..... this bike can support packs and bags but does not have rack/fender mounts.
why is the price of this bike advertised differently on the Framed website?
A shopper on May 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi,
Just a data glitch. The price listed on our website (The-House) is correct. The Framed guys are updating their stuff right now. Thanks!
weight?
A shopper on Apr 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi,
From Framed: "Approx. 19 lbs."
