Fresh Road Bikes: Top Three

Cannondale SuperSix Evo Hi-Mod - $9,999.99

Supersix Evo Hi-mod

[product-block handle="2022-cannondale-supersix-evo-hi-mod-disc-red-etap-axs-m"/]

Doesn’t get much fresher than a 2022 bike in that sweet lavender color. Cannondale put the best of both worlds into the SuperSix Evo’s design — aerodynamics for the fast flats and lightweight comfort for all day affairs out in the mountains. Plus, it’s pretty hard to top that SRAM Red eTap AXS drivetrain.

Trek Domane SL 6 - $4,099.99

Domane SL6

[product-block handle="2021-trek-domane-sl-6-m-4"/]

One for the purists, this 2021 Trek Domane gives you the look and performance of a classic road bike, no frills, no gimmicks. Sure, there’s a clever seat mast and clearance for big 38mm tires for a bit of extra give on the rough roads. And naturally, it runs reliable Shimano Ultegra disc brakes (it’s 2022 after all). But this Domane keeps it simple with traditional mechanical shifting to give you an affordable all-rounder.

Salsa Warroad - $3,199.99

Salsa Warroad

[product-block handle="2020-salsa-warroad-l-6"/]

Salsa … Who let these folks into the road line-up? Don’t sleep on this tidy little all-road bike. The 2020 Warroad’s carbon fiber frame serves up plenty of performance for pavement and dirt riding alike. Innovative thinkers will love the simplicity of the single-ring SRAM drivetrain. (Psst, you know it has almost the same gear range as a double, right). And that red-to-yellow paint fade … It’s just spicy!

Four Fine Mountain Bikes

Rocky Mountain Instinct Carbon 50 - $3,999.99

Rocky Mountain Instinct

[product-block handle="2019-rocky-mountain-instinct-carbon-50-l"/]

If it can handle the tough trails in British Columbia, it can handle anything. Rocky Mountain’s been designing bikes for the gnarly steeps of the Pacific Northwest for decades, and the Instinct Carbon has to be one of its most versatile offerings with 140mm of travel, rangy reach, and a slack 66° head tube angle. With a robust SRAM GX build, it spares you some budget for body armor — because you’ll want it.

Giant Trance Advanced Pro - $3,999.99

Giant Trance Advanced

[product-block handle="2020-giant-trance-advanced-pro-m"/]

So what if the tired and true Giant Trance doesn’t get drooled over on r/MTB. It’s not the hot new thing because the Trance has been around long enough to be a sure thing. With a 115mm/130mm travel combo that looks suspiciously “downcountry,” it’s fair to say Giant knows what its doing and has known for quite some time. Along with the aggressive geometry, it’s smartly built with a combination of Shimano XT and XTR with a Bomber fork out front.

Salsa Horsethief Carbon - $6,499.99

Horsethief carbon

[product-block handle="2021-salsa-horsethief-carbon-slx-l-2"/]

Who is designing Salsa’s mountain bikes, and how have they not been poached by a bigger bike brand yet? I swear, every late-model Salsa that rolls through TPC looks so fresh. And this Horsethief’s blue/purple hue is no exception. It’s also got a proven rear-axle pivot design driving a 120mm rear suspension platform matched to a rough-and-ready 140mm fork. Wrap it all up with a solid Shimano SLX build, and you’ve got yourself a stew!

Yeti Cycles SB100 Turq - $6,599.99

SB100 Turq

[product-block handle="2021-yeti-cycles-sb100-turq-t2-xl"/]

There’s no way around it, Yeti was wrong to discontinue the SB100. This 2021 model, came from the last batch of the venerable XC race platform, and its svelte 100mm Switch Infinity suspension makes me a little misty eyed. With a 120mm fork, this is a killer, capable cross-country bike. Downcountry? We don’t need no stinking downcountry? 

Four Great Gravel Bikes

Trek Boone - $5,199.99

Trek Boone

[product-block handle="2020-trek-boone-disc-l"/]

Hey wait, we said gravel, not cyclocross! Well I say… Who cares?! Trek put together an impressive bike in the Boone with IsoSpeed compliance technology front and rear and sprightly handling that’ll please the roadies who are starting to migrate off-pavement. The Dura-Ace Di2 drivetrain will also please traditionalists with its conventional double-ring setup, but oh, what’s this? The GRX shifters are a sneaky detail that’ll make this bike comfortable on gravel or anywhere else you take it.

Allied Able - $6,899.99

Allied Able

[product-block handle="2020-allied-able-force-axs-m"/]

First we zig, then we zag — from the old-school approach to gravel that is the Boone to the latest and greatest from American builder Allied. The Able innovates with a raised chainstay for a quiet ride. Plus, it has the hottest drivetrain configuration for any terrain — a SRAM AXS Eagle MTB derailleur with a 1x drivetrain. 

Salsa Warbird - $4,699.99

Salsa Warbird

[product-block handle="2019-salsa-warbird-carbon-di2-m"/]

Salsa, so hot right now. But the Warbird has been hot for a long time. It was arguably the first production gravel bike when Salsa introduced it back in the pleistocene era of gravel evolution (rim brakes? Ew!). This is the full-carbon modern iteration of a classic with Shimano Ultegra Di2. Now quit reading this and go enter the Unbound Gravel lottery!

Specialized Crux Comp - $3,999.99

Specialized Crux

[product-block handle="2021-specialized-crux-comp-l-3"/]

This Specialized Crux Comp is the ticket if you’re in the market for a no-frills gravel and ‘cross machine. (OK, it is pink, so I guess that’s one frill). But otherwise, with that classic carbon frame, an unstoppable SRAM 1x mechanical drivetrain, and a can-do attitude, this bike will take you most anyplace.

So those are our 11 favorites. What bikes do you have your eyes on? Let us know in the comments, and be sure to get your shopping done by Memorial Day to score free shipping!
