We set out to make Journeyer Advent 650b among the best gravel and adventure bikes for riders who want something versatile. Journeyer’s new aluminum frame and Fantail aluminum fork feature all-around gravel geometry for comfort and assurance on harsh roads and paths. Journeyer offers dozens of configuration options thanks to its rack and fender mounts, Three-Pack mounts on the fork, top tube and accessory mounts, and ample space for bottles. Set it up for weekend gravel rides, bikepacking overnighters, or your everyday errands. The 650b x 47 mm wheel and tire setup accelerates quickly and offers a nice, wide contact patch for grip on every road surface. The finishing touch? MicroSHIFT’s Advent 1 x 9 drivetrain, with a wide gear range and high reliability factor. Hop on a Journeyer and see where it can take you.
- On Bike Storage: Salsa innovated new bottle and accessory mount placements for added utility and ride range. Our gravel and road bikes have mounts on the top tube and underside of the down tube, plus up to five additional bottle mounts for extra hydration, ride accessories, and bikepacking gear. Our mountain bike line features top tube mounts, mounts on the underside of the down tube on hardtail models, and space for multiple bottles on hardtails and select suspension bikes.
